Canada sledding & snowmobiling

Canada snowmobiling and sledding adventures are enjoyed anywhere in Canada where the snow falls during the winter and early spring months. There are plenty of communities who provide snowmobile and sledding tours and participate in snowmobile events.

Snowmobiling in Canada is a way of life

In upper northern Canada a snowmobile is, often, the mode of transportation most relied on during the winter season for every day living. After the snow has fallen and the temperatures have dropped many of the recreation trails, bike paths, golf courses, backcountry gravel roads, frozen lakes and rivers are transformed into snowmobile routes. In some regions of our country these routes connect communities and in some cases provinces and territories.  

Rural snowmobiling in Canada

In rural and remote communities there are often snowmobile routes following along the side of highways and secondary roads acting as winter transportation routes. In some remote parts of Canada, snowmobiling and sledding routes follow a gps to navigate the backcountry wilderness as there are no designated routes established.
