Your Winter Snowshoe Adventure
Your Winter Snowshoe Adventure

Welcome to sunny, snowy Sauble Beach. You already love this summer vacation paradise but ask any local, and you’ll soon learn that there’s a special kind of magic that happens here when the snow flies. The winter version of this popular tourist town offers solitude, peace and a shimmering wintery beauty that’s all yours.

Imagine snowshoeing along the banks of the Rankin River, sipping hot apple cider at the end of your hike and relaxing by the fire at sundown.  It’s Canadian winter perfection. Make this the winter you plan a snowshoe getaway in Sauble Beach!

Snowshoeing is one of the fastest growing winter sports, and for good reason.

This low impact, cardio workout lets you easily explore the forest trails or even the shoreline. Sauble Beach offers a great opportunity to get your feet ‘snowy’ in the sport.

Long known for their pristine, groomed cross-country ski trails, the Sauble Beach Cross Country Ski Club now offers 10 kilometres of snowshoe-specific trails.
