Winter Activities in Southern Ontario

Make the most of our winter by getting outside and being active. Here are some of our favourite activities!

1. Snowshoeing


Snowshoeing is a great way to get some fresh air without too much exertion. Our top recommendation is Scenic Caves Nature Adventures located at the top of Blue Mountain in Collingwood. They have a great suspension bridge that you can snowshoe across. The facility also offers great cross-country skiing trails.


2. Cross-Country Skiing
Hilton Falls offers 16km of trails just a short drive outside of the city. The trails are suitable for all levels and they offer half day and full day rentals. For more information visit Conservation Halton. Note that they have not been open this season due to minimal snowfall so make sure you call them before you arrive to avoid disappointment!


If you are willing to drive slightly further and north of the city then Horseshoe Resort which offers 40km of groomed tracks is our top pick! Since they are north of Barrie they have had great snowfall this season. If you are an experienced cross-country skier then make sure to do the Achey Breaky trail!


3. Skating at Arrowhead Park
The Ice Trail at Arrowhead Park offers 1.3km of incredible skating. This is a great activity for all ages and makes a great winter memory!

Langdon Hall

Langdon Hall is a Relais & Châteaux property located in southern Ontario dating back to 1898. Less than a two-hour drive from the GTA, Langdon Hall is the ULTIMATE overnight or weekend getaway.

The hotel provides a wide range of activities depending on the time of year. Some of our favourites are snowshoeing on their trails, a game of croquet, sitting by the fire pit year round or relaxing at the pool in the summer.

The cuisine at Langdon Hall is exceptional. Afternoon tea is offered Friday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s. If you are looking for a day trip brunch at Langdon Hall is a great idea.


Langdon Hall is currently building a brand new state of the art spa, event space and eight new guest rooms.
