The 3-day tour is an exciting snowmobile "loop" trip from Kennesis Lake, in Haliburton, across to Bancroft, up to Barry's Bay and, finally, down through Algonquin Park and back to where you started. Along the way, you will be snowmobiling along some of the finest, least crowded snowmobile trails in the world. Visitors from the US have marveled at how nice these snowmobile trails are. You will be passing through winding forest trails, zooming over lakes, and seeing some of the best wilderness Ontario has to offer. At night you will stay at local lodges and motels. 

The 5-day tour is the ultimate winter adventure - an 850-kilometer circular expedition through spectacular wild forests and frozen landscapes of Ontario by snowmobile. Ontario has the largest, and possibly the best, snowmobile trail system in the world, and you will be taking full advantage of it. You will explore the extensive network of wilderness snowmobile trails and logging roads as travel around the area. You will drive through thick, untamed forests, zoom down a 30 m wide Hydro "Right Of Way", and take us into quaint little country villages. Along the way, the group will stop at spectacular vantage points and scenic lookouts.

Only 3 hours north of Toronto, Algonquin Provincial Park is Ontario's oldest park and one of the largest in Canada.  It boasts over 7600 square kilometers, with over 2000 freshwater lakes.  Within its borders can be found deer, moose, beaver, wolves, bears, and many other wild animals, all in their natural habitats.  This park is so large and so varied that one end of the park can have entirely different weather from the other end!  This park is the perfect location for your next winter adventure.

Departure point: Select between Haliburton or Toronto, in Ontario province.

Day 1

We leave Toronto at 7:00 am and drive up to the beautiful Haliburton Highlands. This is the heart of Ontario's unspoiled "cottage country" so you will be treated to some gorgeous scenery. From the Haliburton Highlands we will start our journey into the wild! After suiting up with proper winter clothing, packing our saddle bags (we carry our gear on our snowmobiles), and a safety lesson on snowmobiles, we will venture forth. Our first day is an easy ride, to let everyone get accustomed to controlling their powerful snowmobiles. We will travel about 120 km to our first stop - Spectacle Lake Lodge in the Barry's Bay area. There is a hot tub here, so be sure to bring your bathing suits! The trail takes us through the only portion of Algonquin Park where snowmobiles are allowed. Since Algonquin Park is world famous as a "Wilderness Park", we have an excellent chance of seeing such wild animals as moose, deer, beaver, or even wolves! We will definitely be passing by several beaver dams (now frozen over), so keep your cameras within easy reach!

 

Day 2

After a hearty breakfast we start up our snowmobiles and head south towards Bancroft. Our destination is the Black Forest Inn, just south of town. It is about a 150 km ride, 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

Again, after a good breakfast, we head out on our snowmobiles. Now we are heading west, back to Kennisis Lake. The trail is ever-changing, so it is impossible to bored! We will stop along the way for lunch, before ending our snowmobile safari mid-afternoon. We should be back in Toronto by about 7 pm.

Day 2

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 "Right Of Way". This 30 m wide strip through the forest will allow us to pick up speed and watch the kilometers just sail by!

 

Day 3

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. We end our day in Powason, near North Bay. The accommodations, while basic, are comfortable and will provide us with a good nights rest.

 

Day 4

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 and our stop at a ski resort. Here they have several ways to help you really relax. There is a hot tub - just lie back and let the warm water gently massage your muscles! If you prefer, you can go for a swim in the indoor pool, or soak up the heat in the sauna. Whatever you choose will be a welcome treat!

 

Day 5

We now head through Muskoka and eventually, after 125 km of fantastic snowmobiling, return to the Haliburton Highlands, where we will drop off our snowmobiles. We should get back to our starting point around 3pm, leaving us enough time to get back to Toronto for dinner.
