Come Wander
Snowmobiling in Ontario's Highlands

As a freedom finder, you don’t unwind in a spa or seek soothing and relaxing bubble baths. Instead, you do the opposite to wind your batteries and feel new again – you recharge by embracing speed and getting your adrenaline pumping.

Burn energy this winter with a trip you won’t forget. For the experienced snowmobiler, Ontario’s Highlands makes a great spot to skim over the snow and feel the rush of excitement.

You can bring your own machine or rent from one of the many service centers and dealers throughout the region. There are trails that can take you from Arnprior to Pembroke, from Barry’s Bay through the Madawaska Highlands and back, and a more extensive trip that takes several days around Algonquin Park.

Most snowmobile treks last a day or two and take you through some of the region’s coolest towns where you can stay the night or stop for a snack and warm up before continuing on your quest to burn rubber.

Visit the Snow Country (OFSC District 6)website for more information on where to buy your permit, trail conditions, weather conditions, accommodations, and meal stops.
