Winter in Thunder Bay; What to do Inside

It’s winter in Thunder Bay…

Maybe you’ve just moved here and you are wondering how to keep busy when you just aren’t feeling the super cold temperatures.  Or, you’re looking to try some new things this winter.  Look no further!  In this post I am going to share with you some of my favourite inside things to do here in Thunder Bay when the temperatures outside are… *very cold*.



If we haven’t met before, my name is Danielle Wilson, and I help people just like you buy the types of homes they really love, and sell the homes that are no longer serving them!

Watch to the end and I will share with you my most loved inside winter activity in Thunder Bay that is…

almost as good as luxuriating on a hot tropical beach, depending on your perspective.

Indoor Sports and Recreation

Thunder Bay has many options when it comes to indoor sports and recreation, such as swimming, hockey, soccer, curling, bowling, golf, pool and more.  These types of activities are great ways to meet new people and to try something new!

Join a Fitness Centre

Another fantastic way to stay active in the winter is to join a fitness centre.  There are a variety of gyms in town that offer everything from functional fitness, CrossFit, spin, or the ability to work out at your own pace on your own.  Either way, we have many beautiful fitness centres that are sure to meet your needs.  

Indoor Rock Climbing

If you are looking for something a little more adventurous, try indoor rock climbing at Boulder Bear Climbing Centre.  While this is one thing that I have not tried, I do know that they offer lessons and a variety of other options.  This is on my list of new things to try this winter!

Coffee or Lunch

Sometimes it’s nice to take a relaxing break from the more active options that we’ve already talked about.  If you’re looking for a nice quiet way to spend some time, either solo or with friends, try one of our local coffee shops or restaurants.  We have several and they all offer a bit of a different vibe depending on what you are looking for.

Indoor Events

Throughout the winter there are always various craft fairs, indoor festivals, art shows, markets and many other types of events that you can attend to see what is new and exciting on a local level.  These types of indoor events are also a great way to meet up with old friends and acquaintances or to meet new people.  

Hot or Warm Yoga

One of my absolute favourite things to do inside in the winter is hot yoga.  There is nothing better, outside of a trip to a hot sandy beach, than lying on your mat and feeling the heat radiating from your surroundings.  Thunder Bay has a few very good options when it comes to yoga studios offering a variety of hot and warm classes.  It can be a lot of fun, and also very relaxing to check them all out.
