Spend magical moments with family or friends only an hour away from Montréal. Granby is the gateway to the Eastern Townships, and when it’s covered in bright white snow, you can expect fun days full of discovery!

See animals in a snow-covered setting

In the winter, the Granby Zoo gives you access to 90% of its animals at 50% of the price of admission in the summer. Follow the interactive rally and test your knowledge of animals by taking on challenges and answering questions that call on all of your senses. This year visit the new winter village, where you’ll find slides, a maze and giant games! All of the pavilions will be open, so step inside when you need a break from the cold. A dozen themed demonstrations are presented every day by caretakers, who will reveal the secrets of the animals under their charge.

A fatbiking adventure

The Parc national de la Yamaska is a huge playground that is ideal for novice and expert fatbikers alike! Cycle toward the new Le Pionner rustic shelter and enjoy an extraordinary experience in nature by sleeping under the stars in a one-of-a-kind peaceful atmosphere and keeping warm by the wood-burning fireplace! There is a rental service on site, and rentals are free for children ages 17 and under.

Winter hikes and cross-country skiing

Hop over to the Centre d’interprétation de la nature du lac Boivin where you can feed birds on the trails, especially chickadees that are sure to land right in your hands or on top of your hat! You could also explore the Parc des Montagnards in the municipality of Shefford where a short 2-km (1.2 mi.) uphill walk leads to breathtaking views!

Located close to downtown Granby, the Les Cèdres Golf Club has close to 20 km (12 mi.) of trails for classic or skate-style cross-country skiing. After your activity, warm up in the main pavilion with a delicious soup or a hot cocoa by the fire.
