Canada Snowmobiling & Sledding

Snowmobiling and Sledding Tours, Guides, Resorts and Adventures

Canada sledding adventures are enjoyed anywhere in Canada where the snow falls

Canada snowmobiling and sledding adventures are enjoyed anywhere in Canada where the snow falls during the winter and early spring months. The more north you get the snowmobile becomes both recreation and a mode of transportation to get to and from stores and services. Therefore in many parts of Northern Canada a snowmobile is, often, the mode of transportation most relied on during the winter season for every day living.

Snowmobiling in Canada 

Snowmobiling takes you into the deepest part of the backcountry. During the Canadian winter season this part of the country is referred to as our Winter Wonderland. In our northern communities, 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 transform into snowmobile routes. In some regions of our country these routes connect communities and in some cases provinces and territories. 

Snowmobiling Rural Canada

In our Canadian rural and remote communities there are often snowmobile routes following along side our 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. To experience backcountry sledding adventures one must be an experienced sledder. Visitors should always snowmobile with a guide.
