Things are always better somewhere else, someplace more exotic and more exciting! Right? Well, when in Newfoundland, you will find the excitement and the ‘exotic’ that adventure travel offers. Adventure travel in Newfoundland is only a few kms away from you; it is just around pretty much every corner and so you don’t need to travel to far off places to have adventurous experiences. You don’t have to wait for summer for that adventure travel; if you are an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys adventure throughout the year, don’t leave Newfoundland to find it. Newfoundland, especially western Newfoundland, is a mecca for four-season adventure travel. Let’s see what’s in store for Newfoundlanders and visitors to Newfoundland.
The west coast of Newfoundland, especially Steady Brook which is about a ten minute drive east of Corner Brook, is a popular winter adventure travel destination. Marble Mountain Resort in Steady Brook offers some of the best downhill skiing in eastern Canada. The Blow Me Down Cross Country Ski Club is the site for great cross country skiing. In winter, snowmobiling is another sensational adventure travel activity in the area bringing in locals and visitors alike. From the base of Marble Mountain, you will have access to over 1200 kms of snowmobile trails. Marble Mountain is the place to be at the end of the ski season when it hosts the uphill Race On The Rock Snowmobile Races that are organized by the Western Snow Riders snowmobile club.
Marble Mountain is also an adventure travel mecca and a must visit destination during the spring to fall seasons in Newfoundland. With the snow gone and temperatures on the rise, Marble Mountain is the site for the most exhilarating ride of your life. Eastern Canada’s longest and tallest zip lining canopy tour is accessed at Marble Mountain in Steady Brook. Tickets to take this canopy tour are available for purchase at Marble Mountain Resort. Plan to spend a morning, afternoon or evening as the canopy tour takes about two hours to complete and is available seven days a week. Rain does not stop the tour so come to the hill dressed for any weather. The zip lining canopy tour is for most members of the family with some age and weight restrictions. Children must be six years of age with those under eighteen years of age requiring a parental/guardian signature. The minimum weight requirement is 30 kg and the maximum weight is 125 kg.
A zip lining canopy tour is really a mix of adrenaline pumping fun and excitement as well as a photo opportunity to shoot the stunning and spectacular scenery of Steady Brook and the Humber Valley. The view from the canopy tour will be different from one season to another. A winter canopy tour will take you over snow covered landscape with partially frozen waterfalls; a summer canopy tour will see the thunderous Steady Brook Falls, green and lush landscape and a fall canopy tour will take you through the most amazing colorful landscape, one which is truly magical when seen through the lense of your camera.
When you and your family are in the market for a great adventure travel experience, plan to take the exhilarating canopy tour available to you from Marble Mountain Resort in Steady Brook, Newfoundland.
