Enjoy These COVID Friendly Winter Activities

Updated: Aug 22, 2023

Despite the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still plenty of fun to be had. Seeking adventurous outdoor activities can help you cope with life’s challenges and get a change of scenery. Below is a list of safe winter activities that can boost your energy and spirits this winter while diligently following COVID-19 protocols and maintaining social distancing rules.


Mattawa River Resort is one of the top destinations in Ontario for snowmobilers. With stunning views of the Mattawa River and the Laurentian mountains, you can indulge in the adventurous experience you have been waiting for. The Mattawa snowmobile trails offer incredible viewing and riding opportunities. Not to mention – with Mattawa Voyageur Country receiving an abundance of snow – there are plenty of opportunities to ride in fresh powder. To experience a full weekend getaway, Mattawa River Resort offers all-inclusive snowmobiling vacations so you can immerse yourself in the ultimate winter adventure. These all-inclusive vacations offer everything from accommodations and dining to privately groomed trails.  


When the weather drops below zero, the Mattawa River freezes over, allowing you to lace up your skates and glide along the frozen river. While enjoying an adventurous activity for the whole family, you will be able to experience the beauty of the Mattawa River and the tall pine forests that surround it. After skating – cozy up near a wood-burning fireplace in our cabins and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa! What could be better?

Snow Trails

With 148 acres of land to explore on Mattawa River Resort, there are plenty of activities to get outside and enjoy the winter weather. You can explore the land by snowshoeing, cross country skiing, or hiking through the trails. You will be immersed in the beauty of the outdoors alongside white covered pine trees and the beautiful Mattawa River. Hiking throughout the Mattawa trails is a perfect way to maintain physical distancing and stay safe while staying active.

Making the most of your winter will ensure that your mental health and well-being are being taken care of during these challenging times. Spending time outdoors is essential to keeping your morale high – as long as you are doing so safely and with members of your household.
