Algoma Country offers the true winter explorer a captivating backdrop for trekking the wilderness on snowshoes. This is the perfect place to snowshoe because there are many possibilities and opportunities in this vast wilderness. You can snowshoe on well-marked, groomed trail systems where you’ll find frozen waterfalls, walk through stands of old-growth forests, and incredible views from atop scenic lookouts.

These trail systems generally offer warm-up shacks, and some offer equipment rentals. Or, you can take to the winter backcountry and trek where no one else has trekked before. Explore unmapped rock faces glazed in thick ice and watch for winter wildlife among the peaceful surroundings. Algoma is the place for a real snowshoe adventure.

Snowshoeing is a great addition to a cross-country or downhill ski trip. See the Partner Directory to look for year-round outfitters, trail systems and accommodations.
