The Town of Roddickton-Bide Arm is nestled on the North Eastern part of the Great Northern Peninsula and is an untapped location for winter tourism. The abundance of snow, trees, wildlife, mountains and sunshine makes for a picturesque day.
One should take the opportunity to visit the Town – take a walk, snowshoe, ski or snowmobile on some of the trails. If you are hungry, stop by the Lumberjack’s Landing or Mayflower Inn for some local grub. You can even stay at the Mayflower for a night or two.
Roddickton has been coined the Moose Capital of the World. On my last two visits I have seen moose. During my last trip on March 24, 2011, I saw two caribou crossing the road. I slowed down, pulled out my camera – but they had disappeared into the forest.
One simply can not be disappointed by the mountains in the background that are snow-covered. You may opt to take a side trip to the Town of Conche just 28 kms away.
It is now April 11, 2011 and there is still an abundance of snow and great snowmobiling on the hills. There is still an opportunity for those who wish to enjoy the scenic beauty of the what the Great Northern Peninsula has to offer this season. If you are not able, mark your calendars for the 2012 season!
