Winter Adventures in Almaguin: Weekend Getaway Ideas


Escape to a winter wonderland nestled within serene Almaguin landscapes. This Northern Ontario gem is a haven for enchanting weekend getaways. Embrace the season's magic with a selection of thrilling outdoor adventures, cozy hideaways, and delightful local experiences. Whether you seek the adrenaline rush of snowmobiling or the tranquility of hiking through snowy vistas, Almaguin promises an unforgettable venture into the heart of winter's charm. 

Weekend Idea 1: Human-Powered Retreats

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of Missing Link Adventure Tours, nestled on an old Finnish homestead. The LINNK, a two-story retreat, offers a bright and spacious abode to reconnect with nature and your favourite people. 

Explore seven kilometres of on-site trails perfect for snowshoeing, fat-biking, cross-country skiing, and more, offering a rejuvenating experience amidst a pristine backdrop.

Unwind after your adventures with authentic Cuban cuisine at Cuba Mia or savor the local charm of The Pub. Don’t miss a slice of Yettis Pizza! While in Burk’s Falls, take a scenic walk along the Village of Burk’s Falls Heritage River Walk, a picturesque spot for capturing those Instagram-worthy winter photos.


Weekend Idea 2: ATVs, Snowmobiles and Yurts 

Adventure is in our nature in Almaguin and there’s plenty to be had for all the adrenaline enthusiasts out there. For example, did you know you can ATV in the winter? You sure can and Outdoor Adventures ATV is ready to take you for the ultimate ride. 


After a day of shredding some trails, venture to Pit Stop 518, where cozy yurts await your arrival. What's more? Bring Your Own Snowmobile and connect directly to the trail for a bonus round of fun.

Recharge with a cup of hot chocolate by the evening fire, perhaps catching the elusive northern lights on clear nights. Don’t forget to refuel at Pit Stop Cafe or nearby eateries after your day’s adventures.

Before embarking on the sled trails, be sure to check the OFSCA Trail Map for current trail conditions.


Weekend Idea 3: Snowy B&B Adventures 

For a more serene retreat, book a stay at the beautiful Brimanard Bay. This cozy bed and breakfast is tucked away within 24 acres of forests along the shores of Lake Bernard in Sundridge offering a picturesque vista of snow-kissed hills.

The elegant rooms at Brimanard Bay will tempt you to stay in but there are plenty of outdoor activities to explore. You can bring your snowshoes and go for a meandering hike around Tom Tompson Park or a winter hike at one of the Forgotten Trails such as Moose Mountain or the Loxton Beaver Trail (you can find those and more at Discovery Routes). 

You can choose to prepare your own meals at Brimanard Bay, arrange to have the hosts to prepare some fabulous meals for you or you can hit the local restaurant scene. There’s The Original Wing House for all the wings and things; if you’re feeling like a burger-licious good time then Double Decker is serving them up fresh. Bernard’s Bistro offers a more homestyle feel - it’s like you’re eating in Grandma’s kitchen. Cafe Loma also offers a plethora of freshly-made meals - you will not go hungry in Sundridge.
