Snowshoe & Wine Tasting Experience
Guided snowshoe tour then wine, cheese and charcuterie…fun!
B&B Stay with Guided Snowshoeing and Wine Tasting
Stay at our B&B and enjoy an afternoon outdoors snowshoeing at the Petun Conservation Area in the Blue Mountains and wine tasting in the beautiful Beaver Valley at Georgian Hills Vineyards. The wine tasting is accompanied by cheeses and charcuterie. The vineyard is remarkably close to the quaint town of Thornbury and only a 20-minute drive from the bed and breakfast. Thornbury is a great place for lunch or dinner and has terrific shops! The Petun Conservation area is only a 12 minute drive from the B&B – this is where your fun starts.
Your tour guides know the area very well and are accomplished snowshoe tour leaders. This tour is great for beginners or those experienced with snowshoeing – they will teach you everything you need to know and supply you with snowshoes. You will need winter gear like hats, gloves, boots, and snow pants. Layers are recommended, so if you get too warm, you can take a layer off. You will want to bring some water in a light day pack and of course a camera.
For the days and times that the tours are available see the Fine Print section on this page to your right. You do not need to be checked-in at the B&B to enjoy the tour. If you want to take the tour on your first day in the Collingwood area – no problem. You can check-in to the B&B after your tour. We will contact you after you have made your reservation with us to get your tour day and time preferences. We will reserve everything for you!
