Snowshoe events in the Cape Breton Highlands

Snowshoeing in the Cape Breton Highlands

Snowshoeing is a very popular winter sport in Nova Scotia this winter along with guided excursions.  Hiking Trails tend to look different in the winter with snow…thus the need for guides. Snowshoeing is a great aerobic sport to keep you active during the winter. Don’t forget to use trekking poles.
