The Snow Train is a truly unique look at Algoma Country, clad in its mantle of snow and adorned with sparkling diamonds of ice. Gone are the greens of summer and the fiery colours of fall, the brilliant white of winter is everywhere.

This Ontario snowmobling tour begins at our depot in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. As the train pulls away from the depot you will pass through the city's industrial area, but within minutes the forests will begin to take over, offering a very unique contrast.

As the train winds its way northward, a rugged winter wonderland will unfold before you. Snow laden trees will give way to panoramic views, towering trestles, snow-choked rock cuts, frozen lakes and waterfalls transformed into fantastic ice sculptures by the cold breath of winter.

Your tour is narrated and our on board tour attendants will share some of the history of the region and the Ojibway, miners and loggers who called this rugged wilderness home. They will also make sure you have plenty of time to get your cameras ready as the many scenic points of interest roll past your window.


At mile 102 you will begin to descend 500 feet over the next twelve miles to the floor of the famous Agawa Canyon, where the locomotives will be switched for the return trip. Unfortunately, due to low temperatures and snow accumulation, passengers are not able to detrain at Agawa Canyon.

You will experience all of this, nestled comfortably in your reclining seat as the warmth of your picture-window coach keeps 'old-man-winter's' subzero temperatures at bay.

Whether you've travelled with us in a warmer season or are joining us for the first time, we are sure this unique one day rail excursion will leave you in awe of the majestic power and beauty of a Canadian winter.
