Adventure in the Land of the White Gold


The adrenalin of snowmobiling, the mystic silence of a dog sledding excursion in the wild, the joy of tube sliding, an amazing snowshoe excursion along with an authentic modern days trapper… To allow you more time to take advantage of the several free or optional activities available at the Adventure Center, we voluntarily scheduled less activities than in our other multi-activity packages.
