With many Canadians staying at home this year, there is no time like the present to shake things up and get active this winter. These safe outdoor activities will have you break out of your pandemic blues and energize your winter. Perfect to enjoy solo or with your family, you’ll be ranting to your friends about these experiences when you come back home!
SNOWSHOEING AT BUTTE TRAILS
Looking for a fun new winter activity this season? The White Butte Trails are a perfect location to explore on snowshoes. Conveniently located just outside of Regina, these trails offer a stunning backdrop to your workout and will motivate you to get outdoors to enjoy some fresh air. Pack a lunch and a hot beverage in a thermos and you’ll be set for a day in the woods.
VISIT THE BUFFALO POUND
Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is a little-known gem in Saskatchewan and offers a blend of nature and recreational opportunities for everyone to enjoy. It offers many year-long activities such as mountain biking and walking/running trails, while seasonal activities include skiing, snowshoeing, and ice-fishing. A favourite among adults and kids alike is the chance to visit the bison herd. Snap some pictures of these beautiful animals in their natural habitat.
