Fishing season doesn’t end when the lake freezes over. Our parks are home to some world-class ice fishing opportunities.
Windy Lake Provincial Park offers light-weight, easy to set up ice fishing kits for rent from the Park Office. Staff will even show you where to fish!
Remember – a fishing licence is required, even in the winter.
And more importantly, make sure you’re safe while you’re on the ice. It’s important to bring an ice chisel to check ice thickness, as well as cleats, a pick, a floatation suit, and of course, a friend and a plan.
Fatbikes are mountain bikes with over-sized tires that allow them to travel over snow with ease. Algonquin is a great place to start. The park’s Old Railway Bike Trail is open all year and local outfitters offer fatbike rentals.
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.
