Snowshoeing in Huntsville, Lake of Bays and Algonquin Provincial Park

Why snowshoeing? Why not?! The ease of this winter activity makes it one of the most popular ways to get outside and get active in the snow. Humans have been using snowshoes for millennia — we’re talking 10,000 years or more — and its enduring appeal is testament to both its functionality and its fun. While you could just go out in winter boots, snowshoes offer additional traction and stability, as well as the ability to ‘float’ on the snow, making deeper backcountry areas more accessible.

Huntsville, Lake of Bays, and nearby Algonquin Provincial Park have many kilometres of designated snowshoeing trails to try, but why stop there? Head into the forested backcountry, out onto a frozen expanse of lake, or along a snowy backroad to explore the winter landscape. If you want to learn the ropes from a pro, local outdoor adventure companies offer guided tours and local outfitters can set you up with all the gear you’ll need if you don’t have your own.

Suggested Snowshoe Trip

Close to Algonquin Park, intrepid snowshoe fans should consider a trek into Oxtongue River-Ragged Falls Provincial Park. Though the park is not monitored in winter, many outdoor adventurers head out to explore some of the most iconic scenery in the region. (Be sure to keep a safe distance from the falls themselves.)

Algonquin Outfitters offers snowshoe rentals at their Oxtongue Lake location, where you can book a guided snowshoe tour to Ragged Falls as well!
