With autumn’s peak, Thanksgiving, and Halloween officially in the rearview mirror, it’s finally time to gleefully plunge into the much-anticipated snowmobiling season here at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort. Last year, we talked in detail about Northern Ontario’s premier snowmobile trails, wintertime family reunions, backcountry riding, and last-minute, late-season excursions. So, now it’s time to discuss our newest option: the most affordable backcountry snowmobile tours in Ontario. Starting at just $50 per rider, guests can join a guide-led excursion into the dense wilderness in search of the region’s gnarliest uncharted territory and freshest powder.

The Most Exciting Backcountry Snowmobile Tours in Ontario

As one of the premier Northern Ontario snowmobile resorts, we’re continuously looking for ways to enhance the guest experience. Over the years, we’ve added saunas, hand-delivered meal service, and guided hikes to the fold. And now, as we head into yet another untold decade, we’ve added guided yet unrehearsed backcountry snowmobile tours in Ontario. We began offering daytime excursions in February of 2019. These tours sold out quickly and were a massive success, persuading us to expand the enterprise. No two Northern Ontario snowmobile getaways are the same because our guests rarely visit the same site twice—there’s so much wide-open and deep-forested acreage to explore that it’s silly.

Elk Lake: Invigorating, Liberating, and Tranquil

Each tour includes a fresh, prepared lunch and expert guiding services (as well as no cap on fun)! We recommend these excursions to experienced sledders who’ve roared through rough terrain a time or two. While rare, we’ve spotted curious black bears, moose, and wolves during our travels. If we could describe these journeys in three words, it would be invigorating, liberating, and tranquillity. Riders are urged to bring ice fishing gear, a camera (or smartphone), and a thirst for adventure. For even more details about the most underrated snowmobile tours in Ontario, please give our team a call today at 705-679‑4041. We highly recommend calling ahead as these tours do sell out, primarily because we’re also one of the top-reviewed romantic winter getaways in Ontario.

Intoxicating Snowmobile Vacations in Ontario

But, of course, sledders are more than welcome to visit Go Snowmobiling Ontario to plan a self-guided trip with family and friends. There are over 30,000 kilometres of groomed trails in the region that can be accessed from just outside of our front door. Elk Lake Wilderness Resort has rapidly evolved into Northern Ontario’s hub for snowmobilers, not to mention winter lovebirds, snowshoers, and ice fishing addicts. After embarking on one of our exclusive snowmobile tours in Ontario, return to the resort for a brief sauna respite, hot tub soak, and hand-delivered steak dinner inside your private, lakefront cabin. You’ll quickly come to realize why we’re one of the top-reviewed year-round Northern Ontario resorts.
