SledHead Ventures provides week-long escorted snowmobile adventures in the Maine Wilderness with an experienced Maine Guide who will ensure that your entire party has a safe, comfortable, and memorable journey that will give you bragging rights for a very long time.
Our trips are designed for first-time to intermediate-level snowmobilers. From the time that you arrive at our partnered lodge, until you head back to the airport, you will not have to worry about weather, trail conditions, navigating the wilderness, good food, or a warm bed- we've got all that and more perfected! Your only quandary will be which meal to pick off the menu and what to wash it down with- just hang on for the ride!
All-inclusive pricing includes: Full-time Maine Guide escort (on and off trail), lodging, custom hot breakfasts, snacks, snowmobile, gas, helmet, all outer clothing, and all tips & taxes. The only additional cost to you will be lunches, suppers, and any indulgences at the lodge’s bar.
If you're looking for a vacation that is outside-the-box...
something you've never done before...
something your friends have never seen before...
something that you'll never forget-
You've just found it!
This is not a relax-on-the-beach, nor sleep-til-noon vacation...
This will be an adventure!
It will put a HUGE smile on your face and just a little ache in your muscles.
You will sleep hard every night. You will eat heartily, but you will not gain weight.
We have excellent trails with reliable snow, lots of interesting sights to sled to, outstanding meal hosts, and a friendly lodge that you will find both relaxing and comforting at the end of the day.
Driving a snowmobile ("Sled") is not difficult. It will only take us a few minutes to teach you everything you need to know to comfortably and safely ride on-trail, and within 30 minutes you'll be so comfortable that you'll be able to sit back, relax, and thoroughly enjoy seeing Mother Nature go by.
Average daily high temperatures in the Kennebec River's headwaters area, in western Maine, are very reasonable: only 22°F in January, 25°F in February and 35°F in March, so don’t worry about bitter cold temperatures and high winds that can be common in the western states. Coupled with dependable temperatures, we have the most reliable snow riding conditions in New England, allowing nearby Jackman, Maine to live up to its boast: "World Class Snowmobiling"!
SledHead Ventures is going to provide you with all the warm outerwear you’ll need- helmet, balaklava, jacket, gloves, mittens, insulated bibs, and boots. Throughout our daily adventures you'll be stopping at plenty of interesting lodges, inns, and taverns to warm up and to enjoy a hot meal.
If you’re interested in joining us for the frosty adventure of a lifetime, but with the convenience of not getting stuck in the snow, or lost in the Maine wilderness, please surf around my site for more details. Be sure to check out each of the photo galleries, as well as my YouTube Channel!
I hope you’ll consider joining us and I look forward to seeing the smile that we're going to put on your face.

Here’s what I offer:
You fly into Bangor or Portland Maine, which places you only a couple hours drive, via well-plowed and maintained Interstate and US highways, to our partnered lodge in Maine's backcountry. This beautiful lodge and its welcoming staff will be your base station for the next few nights. The lodge is about 20 miles from the nearest town (Jackman), nestled in a dense forest on the shores of a gorgeous lake with mountains in the backdrop.
Each day, we’ll ride snowmobiles on loop trips, with very little double-backing, so around each corner will be something new- a moose, a waterfall, or a cabin from the 1800s. We'll stop for hot lunches by riding to main street in a different small town each day, or to a lodge so remote that it has no commercial power or telephone service.
Each evening you’ll enjoy dinner and a warm fire back at our base station lodge, sharing a glass of wine or a cold beer with new friends. After a day of no cell coverage, you can now call home or use the free wifi to send an email.
Lodging, meals, and snowmobiles are all provided by third parties that are very good at what they do, based on my nine years of riding Maine's trails searching for the best in quality, safety, and reliability.
My job is to pull the plan together so you don’t have any worries, and I do that well. You’re not going to have to deal with being lost, finding gas or a warm meal in the wilderness, fixing stuff that doesn’t work, or grumpy employees. You are going to learn some new skills, experience the rush of zipping through the forest, and see things that no one in your office or your neighborhood has seen before.
All your memories will be captured on a free photo disk for you.
