DAY 1 – SNOWMOBILE INTRODUCTION
DAY 2 – SNOWMOBILING THE HIGHLANDS
After a hearty breakfast, we start up our snowmobiles and head back north. We will pass through the village of Madawaska and make a lunch stop in Barry’s Bay. That is a 100 km section. There are a few lookout points on this day, so we’ve called the circuit the “Lookout Loop”. It is about an 85 km ride back to the Eco-Lodge, taking 5-6 hours to complete. Along the way we will be following twisty forest trails – this is snowmobiling at it’s best! We will be passing beautiful lakes and small country villages, one of which we will stop at for a hot lunch.
DAY 3 – SNOWMOBILING HOME
Again, after a good breakfast, we head out on our snowmobiles. Now we are heading west, back to Haliburton. The trail is ever changing, so it is impossible to get bored! We will stop along the way for lunch, before ending our snowmobile safari mid-afternoon.

DAY 1 – GET ACQUAINTED WITH OUR SNOWMOBILES – 120 KM TO ALGONQUIN PARK
We meet in the Haliburton Highlands at 1 pm. This part of Ontario has some of the best snowmobile trails in the world. They are well-groomed, uncrowded, and scenic. You will be outfitted with any needed winter clothing and a helmet, and then we go over the snowmobile controls and basic riding techniques. Our first day of snowmobiling is a relatively easy day, covering only 120 km. This allows you to become familiar with the snowmobiles; how to lean into the corners, where to put your body when braking. We snowmobile through some very beautiful countryside and end up at a lodge deep in the forests for the night. There is a hot tub there, which will be a welcome treat after your first day on the snowmobile trails.
DAY 2 – SNOWMOBILING 190 KM TO PEMBROKE
An early start will be needed today, as we have a lot of territories to snowmobile over (about 190 km). We will snowmobile by Pembroke and continue on to Rolphton (on the shores of the mighty Ottawa River), where we will be staying at a local motel. Along the way the countryside changes from the dense forests of Algonquin Park to the scenic rolling hills of the Madawaska Valley, giving us many beautiful views of the surrounding uplands. Beyond Pembroke, the snowmobile trail follows a Hydro Line forest cut. This 30 m wide strip through the forest will allow us to pick up speed and watch the kilometers just sail by!
DAY 3 – SLEDDING 230 KM TO NORTH BAY
We are now riding our snowmobiles in the scarcely populated area to the north of Algonquin Park. This will also be another long ride, as we must snowmobile about 230 km of forest trail. For many people, this is their favorite part of the RAP. A portion of the trail follows a pipeline where the trails are groomed double-wide. A great section of snowmobile trail to open up the throttle and test your mettle. There are also quite long stretches of twisty forest trail, and also some scenic lookouts where we can stop for photos. We end our day in North Bay. The accommodation is a hotel/resort that is comfortable and has it’s own pub. After a long day on the snowmobile trail, and dinner in the pub, you’ll appreciate a good night's rest.
DAY 4 – SNOWMOBILING 165 KM TO HUNTSVILLE
We are now snowmobiling south, along the west side of Algonquin. We travel 165 km through the edge of Muskoka, as we snowmobile into Huntsville. While the distance is shorter, the trails are a bit more technical (meaning more twisties!). Also, this is the most populated section of the tour that we will be sledding, so we need to be vigilant for oncoming snowmobiles.
DAY 5 – SNOWMOBILING 125 KM BACK TO HALIBURTON
We now snowmobile through Muskoka heading back into Haliburton. Depending on ice conditions there are a couple of short-cut trails we can take across frozen lakes. These trails are not groomed by the big groomers, but they are staked and quite safe. And, there is no speed limit. So a final chance to get as much fun as you can handle! Eventually, after 125 km of fantastic snowmobiling, we return to the Haliburton Highlands, where we will drop off our snowmobiles. We should get back to our starting point around 3 pm, leaving you enough time to get back to Toronto for the evening.
