Granby Zoo
 

Granby Zoo
(Eastern Townships)

Tigers, zebras and leopards in the snow? Sure! Visitors may be surprised to find out that they can actually go to the zoo during winter. In fact, 90% of the zoo’s residents are all too happy to get out and enjoy the snow and cold weather. Come see them on weekends throughout the months of January, February and March. Granby Zoo also features special activities in the wintertime, such as a fire-breathing show, a visit of an Inuit igloo and the North Pole Labyrinth. What’s more, tickets are only about 50% of the price of admission in the summer.

Snowshoeing at Mont-Mégantic
 

Snowshoeing at Mont-Mégantic
(Eastern Townships)

Snowshoeing is an excellent choice for anyone who would like to try a winter sport but might feel that alpine or cross-country skiing is not quite the activity for them. Snowshoeing is known to be easy for beginners to learn. At Parc national du Mont-Mégantic, you’ll find about 30 km (19 mi.) of snowshoeing trails for all levels and you can rent snowshoes on site if you don’t have a pair. There’s also a snowshoeing activity by torchlight offered on Saturday nights until late March for visitors interested in a trek under a stunning starry sky.
