Summer Wildlife Tour Brought to Life

Winter:Cedar Meadows

Cedar Meadows

Northern Ontario, Ca

The last time I went on Cedar Meadows Resort and Spa‘s northern wildlife tour was during the middle of winter, when Canada’s harsh temperatures were at their worst, especially in northern Ontario. Bundled up in a Canada Goose parka and wool blanket, I attempted to engage with the animals the best I could amidst the freezing temperatures. Feeding the animals with my bare hand felt like jack frost was nipping at my finger tips every second I had them out of my warm alpaca wool mittens (although, the animals were worth it). I did my best to snap photos (using both a GoPro and Canon Rebel T3) of the northern rarities with my frozen frigid fingers. The highlight of my winter wonderland wildlife tour was seeing a mighty majestic moose up close for the first time. Taking Cedar Meadows Wildlife Tour during the summer gave me a whole new perspective of the active northern wildlife who were curious and wide eyed during the warm, mosquito laden season.

Since then, I’ve indulged in at home manicures and pedicures that I have done myself aside from the rare professional treatment that I have done with a friend (buy one, get one free of course). It is not often that I find the time to go to the spa or can justify spending the money on a luxury for me. Yet, it is so nice to relax while enjoying a spa treatment every now and then.

Staycation at Cedar Meadows Resort and Spa

Cedar Meadows Resort and SpaCedar Meadows Resort and Spa organized the perfect two days to give me a taste of the vacation destination in Timmins during the summer. I first visited the resort and spa during the dead of northern Ontario’s harsh winter when I dined, dipped in the Nordic baths (which was much needed during the freezing temperatures), and snuggled under a blanket on the winter wonderland wildlife tour. This time, I got to visit Cedar Meadows Resort and Spa with my boyfriend during the sunny and warm bird chirping season. Continue reading
