Adventure company Arbraska has a park located in Lafleche, Quebec, where you can explore the biggest cave open to visitors in the Canadian Shield.
The park is just 30 minutes north of Ottawa or a 3-hour drive from Montreal.
Called "The Snowman's Adventure," the package includes three fabulous winter activities for the whole family.
First, do a Discovery Tour of the cave, a world 20,000 years in the making.
Then, head to a Nature Rally on snowshoes through a beautiful winter forest where you follow a GPS and solve riddles to reach the end of the quest.
After, reward yourself with The Zipline that will give you a huge rush of adrenaline along with a breathtaking view of the park from above the trees.
Finish off with a hot chocolate beside a roaring bonfire.
On Groupon right now, the Snowman's Adventure is only $29 for one person or $55 for two.
Or, bring the whole family, because even for four guests it's only $99! Though children must be over the age of 5 to participate.
All equipment is included in the cost of purchase, whether you do the Snowman's Adventure or opt for just a snowshoe through the woods.
Other Cave Tours include "The Explorer Tour," which is a two-hour long exploration of the cave and its smallest passages, or the "Geological Tour," offered specially for school groups.
You can even SLEEP inside the cave!! Children have to be 8 years of age or older and the cave stays at 4 degrees Celsius so you're on the hook for bringing proper camping gear. There is the opportunity to make a bonfire and listen to stories about the history of the cave from your tour guide.
A comment on the Groupon page gave the experience 5 out of 5 stars, saying:
"The cave was surprisingly better than expected. Be prepared to be patient with a bit of waiting between the 3 events. Snowshoe trails are in a beautiful and silent forest. Worth the Groupon rate for sure."
