These optional adventure tours can be combined, or custom experiences can be designed upon request. All adventure tours must be booked at least a week in advance, and notifications of any changes, such as an addition or cancellation of guests, must be received at least 48 hours before the scheduled tour. For safety and enjoyment, please note that all of these adventure tours are weather dependent.


Snowmobile tour

A four-hour tour along snow-covered trails winding through the forest. Each party of four begins the adventure with a safety briefing from the guide, who also supplies helmets. An hour into the tour, the group stops for the first of two planned breaks. Sitting beside a fire, snacks and drinks are enjoyed.

Winter fishing through the ice

A guide demonstrates traditional ice fishing methods on the shoreline of a frozen local lake, and then introduces the group to a variety of modern ice fishing methods. The group of six is invited to begin fishing for northern pike, walleye, perch, and whitefish from holes drilled through the ice. Snacks and refreshments are included.

A Metis cultural experience

A group of six is first given an introduction to the history of trapping and its integral role in the cultural heritage of the Métis people. At the forest’s edge, the guide then explains modern trapping and tracking methods, and demonstrates how, with a fresh trace of snow, tracking animals is made easy. During the four-hour tour, the guide helps the group learn how to track deer, elk and rabbits, as well as wolves and coyotes. Food and refreshments are included.

Skiing, snowboarding and tubing

Our local ski resort offers groomed trails for experienced skiers, as well as a beginners’ area. There are two beginner lifts, a snow tubing “Magic Carpet” and two quad chairs.
