For most Canadians, the winter months are long, very cold with plenty of snow and arctic winds. For those of us lucky enough to live on Salt Spring and the surrounding areas, winter is more about moderate temperatures, a vibrant green landscape with meandering creeks full of crystal clear water.
Salt Spring Island is a magical place in the winter. It may appear to be blissfully quiet but there are actually loads of local activities to keep the residents busy. There are Holiday Craft Fairs, featuring the work of local artisans, trails to be hiked, beaches to be explored and so much more.
Winter on Salt Spring is simply a time to enjoy the outdoors…the peace and quiet of living in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
If you are considering a move to Salt Spring, it’s also a good time to come over and start exploring the island to figure out what part of the island would work best for you. There are loads of different areas throughout the island and one of these areas may be perfect for you.
Whether you are looking for an ocean front estate, a cabin in the woods, a hobby farm to grow your own veggies or a comfortable home with an ocean view, there really is something for everyone.
Welcome to Salt Spring Island!
