The Esterhazy area features walking, hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails for people of all ages and skill levels. The area boasts a self-guided Heritage Walking Tour (of historical sites within the community), the Kaposvar Birding Trails and the Donald Trails. The snowmobile trails are located just outside of the town's limits and are maintained by the area's local snowmobile club.

The Kaposvar Birding Trails are located along the Kaposvar reservoir and are part of the Yellowhead Flyway Birding Trail Association's extensive trail network. These beautiful walking and hiking trails are just 3.5km NW of Esterhazy and are an excellent location for seeing a variety of bird and wildlife species. Along the trails, you may encounter deer, beaver, painted turtles, ducks, pelicans, sand pipers, coots, coyotes, flycatchers, grebes, thrushes and so much more. The pathways are marked and feature a beaver dam and a 2.5 m long foot bridge that provides an excellent vantage point for bird watchers.

The Donald Trails is an extensive network of hiking and cross-country skiing trails. The network consists of 14km of intermediate to advanced level hiking trails and 12km of beginner to intermediate level groomed, classic cross-country ski trails. These trails travel along the edge of the Esterhazy Golf Course and are located in the Esterhazy Regional Park, which is within the town's limits.

During your trip to Esterhazy, you may also want to visit the Potash Interpretive Centre, the Esterhazy Flour Mill (a provincial heritage site), the local museum or any of the other recreational facilities offered by the community.
