Bear Claw Tours | ATV AdventuresGEORGIAN BAY'S ULTIMATE ADVENTURE! A Spectacular All Canadian Experience Can you come out and play? Our guided half-day adventures last 3-4 hours and are perfect for a morning or afternoon Wilderness Discovery! We provide:> Current model fully automatic, power steering 420 cc 4x4 Honda ATVs> Helmet, goggles and gloves> Trail snacks & refreshments> Fully experienced guides> Full safety instruction> Spectacular Canadian Shield Scenery We cater to the novice rider as well as to the experienced ATVer. Both find the "tour" enjoyable because our ATV adventure is much more than just riding an awesome four-wheel drive machine. Explore some long forgotten pioneer trails and see some out of the way lakes, cranberry bogs and ... if we are lucky ... a bear or moose or two! The Canadian Shield is ever present in our tour. Drive along some craggy outcrops as well as over around and under the very mantle of the north. Our trip is punctuated with regular stops of interest and places to relax and just take in all the Georgian Bay area has to offer. Each tour is recorded on our website in the Tour Pictures section. If you visit the site you'll be teased with a glimpse of some of the fun you can expect. Bear Claw Tours also caters to those who have their own ATV. Those folks only pay half price! Come and see why our hundreds of customers earned us the award of 'Tourism Business of the Year'. Give us a call and we can help you plan your own AWESOME ADVENTURE!

My husband and I (both seniors) booked a three hour adventure with Bear Claw Tours. This was my first time on an ATV and my husband had very little past experience. I must admit that I became quite apprehensive during the orientation as there seemed to be a lot to remember and the navigating sounded daunting. To their credit, both... More

Andrew R, Owner at Bear Claw Tours, responded to this review

It's a great thrill to introduce our customers, particularly the apprehensive ones, to the challenge of ATVing on the Canadian Shield. It's most gratifying to see them meet and embrace the outdoors well beyond their original expectations and trepidation. Thank you for your validation. We hope to see you again soon and present another great adventure for you to explore. More

Made us feel like we accomplished something. Good clean equipment. Gave us a clean skull cap, helmet and gloves. Offered boots but we... More

Was looking for something to do with my girl friends and happened upon Bear Claw Tours. Never done anything like it before and now can't wait to do it again. John was an awesome guide and only made the outing better.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for an adventure. This is not a tour for the faint at heart. You will find yourself challenged! We tackled obstacles that were terrifying, but I never felt unsafe. The guides were both very good at assisting where necessary (ie. pulling you out of the mud when you got stuck....) and... More

What a wild ride! Andrew (owner) gave us some helpful training, especially for out two teenagers who had never driven an atv. We all had nice powerful 450cc machines that were really easy to use.
