Outdoor activities are fun and healthy, and during the winter there are many unique opportunities. Once such opportunity is snowshoeing at Duluth's Glensheen Mansion.

The mansion is open for self-guided tours, at reduced capacity, with their Never Ending Christmas tours. Every Saturday and Sunday through the end of March, (or until the snow melts) all members and tour guests will receive a free snowshoe rental with the purchase of a Full Mansion tour, Classic Tour or Grounds Admission. They offer a variety of styles and sizes for the whole family.

Snowshoeing around the estate grounds is quite the experience.

What sets snowshoeing at Glensheen apart from other snowshoe experiences is that the terrain is mostly flat and easy to traverse. Since many people are snowshoeing for the first time this year, Glensheen is a great place for beginners.

Glensheen encourages everyone to explore off the paths. They say that seeing the 12-acre estate exclusively from the paved paths doesn't provide the full experience.  With snowshoes, guests can explore areas they wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience and discover areas that are completely new to them. "For example, guests can snowshoe through a wooded area at the front of the mansion and even venture under the Stone Arch Bridge."

Glensheen is open Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tours are only available for purchase onsite at Glensheen. If guests want to skip going inside the mansion, they can explore the estate by purchasing a $5 Grounds Admission.
