This self-guided interpretive tour takes you on a winter journey through the Niagara Greenbelt! Though snow is not always a given in Niagara, your chances of seeing some are best if you take the tour any time between New Years Day and the middle of March.
This tour will introduce you to the many low-impact activities the Niagara Greenbelt has to offer during the winter season, by guiding you to six winter recreational destinations. As the tour unfolds, you will be informed of the historical, geological, ecological, and cultural significance of the Niagara Greenbelt area.
In addition to discovering new destinations, this tour will lead you to three mouth-watering vegetarian restaurants, for your taste buds to experience cuisine that is not only delicious, but also environmentally friendly. The tour ends at a quaint bed and breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lake, for you to stay overnight after your day of tobogganing and skating in the beautiful winter scenery!
Points of interest on the tour include:
This tour begins at the Peach King Centre, located in Grimsby, Ontario - probably the only area in the Niagara Greenbelt with guaranteed outdoor skating!
