Canada is known for its wild national parks. What many people do not realize is that they are open all year long. And, winter is probably one of the best times of the year to take a guided adventure outing into the park. Why? Three reasons: Very few other people are here; you are more likely to see wildlife; and you get to do things that are truly unique.
Riding Mountain National Park in southern Manitoba is an excellent location for snowshoeing, winter photography, and wildlife viewing including moose, bison, owls, and grouse. However, it is the snow itself which offers a study in ecology - how it insulates, how it moves, and how it is important to northern eco-systems. Earth Rhythms (earthrhythms.ca) takes small groups out into the national park to experience snowshoeing, in safe and easy ways.
