Newfoundland and Labrador
is currently in the process of developing a province wide
Snowmobile Trail System. Some of our outfitters as already
taken advantage of the system while others operate from
wilderness locations. Tours are offered along the Long Range
Mountains and the Gros Morne National Park area. For those
interested in extreme north adventures, we have outfitters
in Northern Newfoundland and Labrador that offer unbelievable
The Newfoundland Snowmobile
federation, the agency that maintains the trail system,
has 17 separate clubs and each has its own individual area.
All clubs are connected together and where one club stops
another one takes over. The provincial federation covers
an area the starts in St. Davids on the west coast and extends
to Clarenville on the the east coast. The federation also
has several clubs on the Great Northern Peninsula that will
allow riders to travel from Deer lake to St. Anthony. Presently
Newfoundland has over 500 Kms of groomed snowmobile trails.
This is expected to increase to over 600 Km trails in the
next 2 years.
The groomed snowmobile trails
in Labrador West are already connected to 300 kms of groomed
trail on the Quebec side of the border which have been developed
by the Fermont Snowmobile Club (Quebec) and another 200
kilometers of groomed snowmobile trail to Churchill Falls,
Labrador. As a matter of fact, snowmobile enthusiasts who
travel to Labrador West to experience Labradorís extraordinary
wilderness will have in excess of 900 km of groomed trail,
as well as, several thousand more kilometers of some of
the best off-trail riding in the world. Presently, work
is continuing to complete a groomed Trans-Labrador snowmobile
trail. In the near future this trail will be complete, making
Labrador host to over 1500 km of groomed trails that will
connect Labrador City/Wabush in the West to LíAnse Au Clair
in the East (on the Quebec border), passing through all
communities in between.
