Frequently Asked Questions!

What Time and Where?

The trips leave most days with reservations in advance from our location on Millinocket Lake - follow signs to The River Driver's Restaurant/Twin Pines or The New England Outdoor Center. 8 Miles North West of Millinocket, Exit 244 off I-95.  Follow this Google Maps Link for Directions: https://goo.gl/maps/WJaPxMA4Cck

When Should I Get There?

Plan on arriving an hour before your tour - so at 8 am for the 9am tour or at 12 noon for the 1pm tour.  There is paperwork to be filled out, you will need to watch a safety video, if snow conditions warrant it may take you a bit longer than you anticipate to get there, you will want time to put on your gear and be ready to start as close to 9am as possible.

What Gear Do I Need?

Your tour includes your snowmobile rental and a helmet.  Snowmobiling is a cold sport, so you will need specific gear for sledding.  We rent bibs, jackets, gloves, and boots and HIGHLY recommend getting the gear if you do not have gear.  We do not generally recommend skiing gear as it tends to be lighter weight and may smell from gasoline after time out on the sleds.

Booking Process?

Renters have to be 18 years or older. Any passengers must be age 9 or older.  In order to rent a sled, a $1,000 security deposit hold on a credit card is required.  If the sled is returned in the same condition as when rented, this hold is released from the card.  Holds on Debit cards take longer to release, some banks also will not allow it.  Check with your financial institution.

Our Skills & Expertise on the Trails in the Area

We spend a lot of time in these woods in wintertime.  On staff we have a number of registered Maine Guides that will be with you on your guided trips and they can help take the guesswork out of your day.  A day in the Katahdin Region in Wintertime is exhilarating and breathtaking and you need to be well prepared as it is a wilderness area. Snowmobiles are recreational vehicles and are used in climate conditions that are often extreme... The open air and speed of the snowmobile can be exhilarating, but it also can be dangerous.
