Sled the Sparkling Scenery

By Explore Minnesota

People riding snowmobiles in the woodsMore than 22,000 miles of groomed trails beckon snowmobilers to cruise on a sled amid the sparkling scenery of Minnesota’s parks, lakes and forests. It is easy to find resorts and hotels that welcome snowmobilers and make a home base for exploring, and to locate businesses that rent snowmobiles to guests.

Snowmobile trips are great for groups and families to experience together the fun of riding, sightseeing, and kicking back at a cabin or lodge. Planning a trip around a winter festival is a fun way to enhance the itinerary.

Explore Minnesota and the Minnesota DNR can provide trip ideas and detailed planning assistance. The Minnesota Snowmobiling Destinations guide, featuring regional information, maps and travel resources, is available online or by calling 888-868-7476.
