Scenic Caves Nordic Centre
The Nordic Centre is closed for the season and will reopen again for winter 22/23 when enough snow flies to start cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Thanks for an incredible season! We invite you to take a look at our warm season adventures and activities and hope to welcome you this Spring, Summer or Fall. Start planning your visit soon. https://sceniccaves.com/collections/warm-seasons
We are excited for the winter season and thrilled to once again welcome guests to our Nordic Centre. Our commitment to the well being of our staff and guests is paramount in everything we do. Activities and services will vary depending upon weather conditions.
Set within one of Canada’s eighteen UNESCO biosphere reserves, lies Scenic Caves Nordic Centre - a spectacular winter playground. With our unique mountaintop location, the Nordic Centre is nestled in 370 unspoiled acres of the Niagara Escarpment. Our location provides the perfect elevation for reliable snow conditions and consistent temperatures, all season long. Glide along our 27km trail network by cross country ski, or hike by snowshoe on 12km of trails. Our trails are professionally groomed and track set daily and include access to Southern Ontario's longest Suspension Footbridge!
Many native species call our 200 year old forest home and await your arrival. A wide variety of birds including winter owls, deer, rabbits and other wildlife can be seen during any given winter visit.
