The Best Places for Snowshoe-Fondue Tours Near Vancouver

November 17, 2020 |

Snowshoes, good friends, the great outdoors, and molten cheese and chocolate. What more could you want from a winter adventure?

On a snowshoe-fondue tour, you and a group of friends sign up to be guided through the towering hemlock and fir trees in the glistening snow on one of Vancouver’s North Shore mountaintops before finishing your day in a lodge fireside with your hot fondue. All three of our resorts are from just a 25-minute journey from downtown Vancouver, so you can go from downtown to downtime in minutes in our epic wilderness complete with views of the city below.
