8 Reasons to Break New Boundaries on the Northern Odyssey

Any snowmobiler with a sense of adventure knows there’s nothing quite like riding a trail you’ve never ridden before. Nothing like taking on fresh snow and seeing what’s around the next bend or over the next ridge. And when you ride the Northern NB Odyssey, there’s plenty of adventure to go around. Here are 8 reasons to come and break new boundaries:

1. Snowmobiling that will earn you some serious trail-cred.

This 1500km (900 mi) loop is full-on exhilaration. See some of the tallest mountains in the Maritimes, climb ridges that let you see hills and valleys for miles, and take in spectacular views along the coast.


2. Unmatched exhilaration paired with unmatched comfort.

With warming huts and gas stations conveniently located along the trail, you can chill out and gas up as you see fit. Plus, at the end of the day you can just ride your sled right up to your door.


3. Cityscapes that offer the perfect loop.

The odyssey connects the cities of Bathurst, Campbellton, and Edmundston. That means you get to experience a unique blend of urban comfort surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.


4. Discover the gem that is the Acadian Peninsula.

Imagine beautiful bays, quaint fishing towns with boats out of the water for winter, and lighthouses in the distance. That’s just a little of what’s waiting for you when you ride along the coast of the stunning Acadian Peninsula.


5. Enjoy a special welcome.

Planning to visit from Nova Scotia, PEI, Quebec, Ontario or New England this winter? Don’t miss Tourism Weekend from February 22-24. For these 3 days, snowmobile visitors to New Brunswick will get a special no charge permit to ride any of the NBFSC’s 8,000 kilometres of trails. Come on out and enjoy the ride!


6. Take part in winter festivals and events.

From hockey and tubing to fireworks and community breakfasts, there’s no shortage of local fun to participate in. There’s even a thrilling uphill snowmobile drag race that happens each year.


7. Fuel your days with local eats.

Days out on the snow mean that your sled isn’t the only one that needs quality fuel. Luckily, there’s tons of great options to tempt your taste buds when you get back from a day out on the trails. The restaurants at our snowmobile-friendly hotels are always a favourite, and if you’re looking for a night on the town you’ll find plenty of spots just a short cab ride away.


8. Score some pond hockey action.

From the Tracadie Pond Hockey tournament to the World Pond Hockey Championships located just down in Plaster Rock, get a fix of the good ‘ol hockey game in its purest form.

So go ahead. Get your sled… and see for yourself how much fun it is to break new boundaries on the Northern NB Odyssey.
