For all tours:
+ For Urban neighbourhood walking food tours:
+ For hiking + picnic adventures:
The tours are held rain, shine, or snow.
However, if there is a significant storm that is effecting safe travel, we will either reschedule, or turn your tour into a ‘gift certificate’ to redeem at a later date.
We advise you to check the weather conditions for your days event, and dress appropriately, including sturdy footwear. In the winter months, this sturdy, warm footwear needs to be appropriate for snow/ice conditions.
In the summer months, we can lend umbrellas (for urban tours) or ponchos (for guided hikes) if you do not have your own.
In the winter months, we recommend you dress in layers, with a (non-cotton) wicking layer, insulating layers of wool or fleece, and a wind-breaker/shell – topped with cozy mittens and a hat of course!
FYI – Please note: even in the summer months, here in Thunder Bay, onshore wind off Lake Superior can be very chilly!
At this time, strollers and wheelchairs are welcome on the ‘Lake Walk‘ tours only (in the seasons without snow), due to the tight spaces in some of the food establishments we visit.
However, you can contact us to book a private/custom tour: where we can create other tours that are fully accessible, and can accommodate your group’s needs – including (but not limited to) wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, infants and/or young children!
