Haliburton Highlands Snowmobile Safari
An excellent high-speed taste of the Ontario winter wilderness. The exciting circle tour starts from Toronto, from where you will be driven to Kennesis Lake in Haliburton, pick up your snowmobile, travel up to Barry's Bay and down through Algonquin Park, passing through winding forest trails and zooming over lakes to Bancroft before transferring back to Toronto. Overnight accommodation is in local lodges or motels. This is an excellent trip to combine with either a resort stay or a visit to Toronto.

Toronto to Spectacle Lake
You will leave Toronto at 7:00 am and drive up to the beautiful Haliburton Highlands. This is the heart of Ontario's unspoiled "cottage country" with some gorgeous scenery. From the Haliburton Highlands you will start your journey into the wild! After suiting up with proper winter clothing, packing your saddle bags (the group carry the gear on the snowmobiles), and a safety lesson on snowmobiles, you will venture forth. The first day is an easy ride, to let everyone get accustomed to controlling their powerful snowmobiles. You will travel about 120 km to the first stop - Spectacle Lake Lodge in the Barry's Bay area. There is a hot tub there, so be sure to take your bathing suits! The trail will take you through the only portion of Algonquin Park where snowmobiles are allowed.

Spectacle Lake to Bancroft
After a hearty breakfast start up your snowmobile and head south towards Bancroft. Your 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 you will be following twisty forest trails - this is snowmobiling at it's best! You will pass beautiful lakes and small country villages, one of which you will stop at for a hot lunch.
