Like Fine Wine…It Gets Better With Age
By: John Arkwright
My first snowmobile trip to Quebec was to the Laurentians in the winter of 1990.
We rode to Mount Laurier and took in the unforgettable climb to the top of Devil’s Mountain. What a trip!
I enjoyed the week with the guys so much I went home, picked up my wife, brother-in-law and sister-in-law and came back for a second week of riding. It was the beginning of a long list of extended touring holidays we took together.
Without a doubt, riding in the Laurentians was the best snowmobiling experience we’d ever had.
Ten years later, we were invited to come and ride the Wood Runner Tour again. Same thing – tremendous riding; it just keeps getting better.
This region has everything snowmobilers are looking for. Above average snowfall and some of the most picturesque scenery you’ll ever see.
Winding through the Laurentian Mountains, the trails are just beautiful.
In three or four days riding here you’ll experience every possible type of terrain, from logging roads, hydro lines and rail beds.
The southeastern portion of the region is made for “Park and Ride” style holidays. Women especially like this kind of holiday, and this area has the perfect elements.
We’re talking shopping, fine dining, spas, pools and hot tubs. If you’re more into the “saddlebag style” of riding, then you came to the right place, too.
To ride through all of this region, it will take several visits. There are many fantastic resorts and a limitless network of trails allowing you to make your days as long or as short as you want.
Throughout the entire region there are remote but fabulous 5-Star lodges that will simply amaze you with their style of ambiance and hospitality, found only in Quebec.
If you’re interested in visiting some of these resorts, you may wish to do the Wood Runner Trail. It is an established tour and well worth looking into.
By now you’ve probably guessed that this is one of my favorite places to ride. Frankly, I can’t wait to go back again!
