There are several local groups close to the Buttonwood Inn that offer ziplining tours across several beautiful forests filled with snow-coated Evergreen trees.
3. Ice Fishing on a New Hampshire Lake
Considering that we have over 1,000 lakes here in the Granite State, you’re certain to find the perfect spot to catch some fish of your own. Just be sure you’re ready—ice fishing does require certain equipment and can be a little dangerous if you’re not prepared, so be sure to stop by a tackle shop to pick up everything you need and read New Hampshire’s ice fishing safety guide before heading out!
