Ice Fishing That Remote.

Ice fishing is not just about a day of fishing on the lake, it’s an experience that you can build an entire vacation around. From snowmobiling onto a remote lake or driving into a four season lodge, the winter scenery and wildlife, will result in many fish tales around the hot stove. Ice fishing is an activity that everyone can enjoy in peaceful solitude, or with a group of family and friends. Within minutes of our cities and towns you can access lakes filled with trout, walleye and northern pike, or participate in annual ice fishing derbies. Plan an ice fishing trip today!

Trails that vast.

The Algoma region truly loves winter and snowmobiling! Our trail system consists of over 2,000 miles of groomed trails carved through the rugged Canadian Shield and old growth forests. We are a Sledders Paradise: No traffic, friendly faces, awesome trails and sled friendly accommodations. Our snowmobile season lasts longer than other parts of Ontario, usually well into late March. Check out snowmobiling trips here!
