The preferred method of exploration for many is much simpler: fill a pack, grab a map, lace up those boots, and trek into the unknown. That being said, backpacking in Ontario doesn’t have to equate to “roughing it” through the bush and shivering under the stars. Enter: Elk Lake Wilderness Resort, the perfect balance of beauty, seclusion, and convenience.
We’re still weeks away from our first snowfall here at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort, but that doesn’t mean we’re not already daydreaming about the start of the upcoming snowmobile season. Ontario is home to one of the longest networks of recreational snowmobile trails in the world. Two of the province’s most beautifully-groomed trails run directly through Elk Lake and eventually connect with dozens of other networks.
