Labrador provides the snowmobiling adventure of a lifetime. Whether it’s Cain’s Quest, the ultimate snowmobile race, or trail riding that’s far beyond anything anywhere else, Labrador is a unique and challenging experience.
Cain’s Quest returns for 2016 with a pan-Labrador route and a $100,000 (Canadian) total purse. Canada’s longest and world’s toughest snowmobile race is a two-man team event that starts March 5 in Labrador City and traverses numerous checkpoints throughout Labrador before ending back at Labrador City about a week later. It draws competitors from all over North America and even Europe. And you can follow live it as it unfolds on cainsquest.com.

Experienced recreational riders will also find Labrador challenging and beautiful. Hundreds of miles of expansive and expertly groomed snowmobile trails are available in Labrador West. Depending on weather conditions, many additional trail miles may be groomed in the Labrador Straits, the North Coast region and the interior. Funded by a permit system, trails open around Christmas to provide some of the most enjoyable riding we’ve ever seen anywhere, particularly from mid-February to mid-April. And unlimited off-trail riding allows exploring much more of Labrador. Due to the extreme distances, dispersed services and weather conditions, guides are highly recommended for first-time visitors, and rental sleds are available in some areas for those who fly in.
Labrador is simply heaven for those who love winter. Panoramic views of the vast wilderness can be observed from the coastal mountains and occasional hills in the interior. And if you are in the right place at the right time, you can view the wildlife or the northern lights dancing in the sky above.
If you are an experienced snowmobiler, visit Labrador. It’s like nowhere else you have ever experienced.
