More Winter Activities in Ontario Parks

Tobogganing & Tubing

The young or young-at-heart might want to toboggan on the hills at Bronte Creek and The Pinery or try tubing at Arrowhead (we supply the tubes).


If you’re looking for something a bit more unique, Algonquin has two trails available for dog-sledding. If your own dog isn’t willing to pull, there are outfitters who offer dog-sledding expeditions in the park.

Wildlife & Bird Watching

Winter can be a great time for viewing wildlife at Ontario Parks. Wolf tracks are often visible across snow-covered lakes. See if you can spot where wolves have tracked deer or moose.

Did you know winter is one of the best times to learn bird watching? There are fewer birds to identify and birds are easier to spot. All you need is a half decent set of binoculars, a pair of snowshoes and warm clothing. Ask an experienced birder for tips on how to identify winter birds and their habitats.
