Canada snowshoe adventures and tours are enjoyed in almost every part of Canada during the winter months. In some parts of Canada snowshoeing is a part of life and is a necessary means of transportation after a big snowfall from one end of a community to the other.
After the snow has fallen and the temperatures have dropped many of the recreation trails, bike paths, golf courses, frozen rivers and backcountry gravel roads in Canada are transformed into snowshoe trails.
Up in the mountains, the ski resorts often provide snowshoe adventures exploring the mid mountain slopes in the region. There are also backcountry resorts located in the remote regions of the country which provide snowshoe adventures.
