There’s something for those who remain on dry land, too. Thousands of kilometres of scenic trails await hikers, mountain bikers, ATV enthusiasts, snowmobilers, and skiers. Or pop into the community’s quaint towns and villages for your fill of shops, authentic dining experiences and, best of all, country charm.
