"The absolute silence, the magnificent snow covered landscape and on a sunny day the whole world looks like it has been sprinkled with glitter."
The Treherne family, February 2016

Snowshoe, ski and sledge your way around a winter wonderland of snowy lakes and forests. Wrap up warm to ride a sled pulled by speedy huskies through the frozen landscape and feel the icy wind on your cheeks as you go.
