 New year in New Hampshire and Winter fun in New Hampshire:

Head north for wintery fun! With trails, frozen lakes, and ponds, plus snow-covered mountains we offer a variety of winter activities perfect for all ages.

 Winter Festival in New Hampshire:

When the weather gets cooler, our adventures amp up! With thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, one of our most popular winter activities is snowmobiling! The snowmobiling season officially caps off with the GoNorth Snofest! Snofest is a celebration of the region’s winter culture.

With so many local snowmobile riders, and people who travel across the country, it only makes sense that we would host an annual snowmobile festival! Snofest features a display of vintage snowmobiles allowing visitors to peek into what snowmobiling looked like in the early years of the sport. Guests also have a chance to test drive new snowmobile models, participate in family-friendly activities, human-powered sports and more! Stop by, we’d love to celebrate one of our favorite pastimes with you.

The North Country is blessed with natural beauty, seen through the surrounding environment.  Try something new this year. Dogsledding isn’t just a thrill ride for the movies. The Great North Woods has some of the best dogsledding in the nation! We have multiple dog sled outfitters that are happy to help plan an experience of a lifetime. Bundle up and hop on the sled for a one-of-a-kind winter adventure. Fly through the idyllic scenery while the rest of the world fades away. 

Our scenic winters are perfect for traditional New Hampshire experiences. Travel somewhere new this year to find an unmatched getaway. Find more winter activities in our Go North Guide.
