Take an evening snowshoe hike with a Friends of Gatineau Park nature interpreter, and learn how plants and animals survive the many challenges of winter. This interpretation hike will cover approximately 3 km, starting with a short presentation and ending with hot chocolate by the wood stove, in the Sugarbush Shelter.

Bring your own snowshoes — or rent ours for $5 (reservations online or by phone). Snowshoe rentals for children are free. Make sure you dress warmly for an outdoor activity.

No snowshoeing experience necessary. While the hike is considered easy, there are a few slopes and hills. Recommended for children of age 8 and older.

Space is limited. Reservations are required.


Every Friday, from January 10 to March 13, 2020
