Guided trap line tours are available during the late fall and winter months. During the open water trapping season (after October 15), boats are supplied. For tours on land trails (old logging roads), guests must supply their own ATV's. Once winter arrives and the lakes and rivers are frozen (usually before Christmas), guests must supply their own snowmobiles.

You will see, first hand, professional trappers carrying on an age-old tradition with the newest of equipment, all within the strict rules and quotas mandated by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR).


Species harvested include muskrat, raccoon, beaver, red squirrel, ermine (weasel), mink, marten (sable), fisher, otter, red fox, lynx, coyote and timber wolf.

Don't forget your camera and enjoy a free lunch over an open fire on the side of the trail. Sorry, but pets are not allowed on any of these tours; first for safety reasons and secondly, dog and wolf urine have a similar odor and all other animals tend to shy away from areas where wolves have been.
