Snowmobile New Brunswick Quebec adds to your adventure by crossing the border to between provinces on this Canadian snowmobile tour. The snow machine season in northern New Brunswick often starts before Christmas. It usually extends well into April – perfect for late season New Brunswick snowmobile vacations.
What’s more, hundreds of old logging roads crisscross the region, which includes the Miramichi Highlands, Chaleur Uplands, and the Notre Dame Mountains. Some of these man-made corridors are groomed as part of the New Brunswick Federation of Snowmobile Clubs’ (NBFSC) maintained trail system. Others are simply available for riders to explore off the beaten track as we did on Days Three and Eight.
Maintained trails like PT (Provincial Trail) 23 east of Serpentine Lake and PT58 south of Serpentine are good examples of absolutely primo New Brunswick snowmobile tours. Their wide, rolling white carpets of packed snow make for exciting, exhilarating and effortless riding. With so many outstanding trail choices, it’s hard to know where to get started. And even tougher to know when to quit. Best of all, most of these routes either avoid water crossings or are bridged. So spring riding in the interior continues even when ice goes bad.

This is why northern New Brunswick has long been a snow magnet for sledders from the Maritimes and Maine searching for reliable riding. Increasingly, it’s also a popular destination for riders from Ontario and Quebec. These riders can be on that New Brunswick snow after trailering no greater distance than they would to many more familiar destinations. Besides, New Brunswick is arguably Canada’s most bilingual province. So communication is no problem regardless of which official language you speak.
Just remember that New Brunswick is on Eastern Time. We lost an hour entering from the west (and gained it going back). We also switched to daylight savings, so I never really knew what the right time was. But when there’s amazing riding to be had, who cares?
