The Cave Discovery Tour is the first part of this winter adventure and can be done on its own if the other attractions don't interest you. Venture down into the darkness of the Canadian Shield's largest visited cavern.

A guide will explain the cave's over 20,000-year-old history and show you formations of stalagmites and stalactites that begin to form in mid-January. You may even spot some bats! A helmet and headlamp are provided for the tour.

The adventure will then take you up to the treetops where you'll fly on a zip line and see beautiful surrounding views of the park and trees. All of the required gear will be supplied.

The fun continues with a nature rally on snowshoes, as you use a map to navigate the forest, solving riddles as you go. This lasts about one hour and can be done on foot if there's not enough snow.

Finish your epic winter day with a hot chocolate by an outdoor fire to warm up. The entire adventure will last about three hours. Make sure to book online before visiting.
