Nestled close to the cities of Edmonton and St. Albert is a hidden oasis full of winter fun. Rural Rivers is a locally owned and operated rental service in the heart of Alberta in Sturgeon County along Big Lake and the Sturgeon River. They offer rentals for winter and summer activities on their large, family-owned property. Located just off of Highway 44 and Ray Gibbon Drive, it is easily accessible from the city. While their summer rentals are popular among locals and tourists alike, they also offer winter rentals that will take your cold weather activities to a new level.
Moonbikes: The New Snowmobile Experience
Move over snowmobiles and brace yourself for a new kind of exhilarating snow adventure! Rural Rivers’ Moonbikes are more than just a snowmobile; they are a quiet, ecofriendly alternative. Battery powered and lightweight, they will take you on a vast ride through their snowy trails and give you an immersive experience with nature and fellow riders. They have three speeds to match your skill and comfort level and because they are battery operated, they are quiet and won’t leave you smelling like exhaust at the end of your journey!
Group Rentals and Corporate Events
Not only do they provide rentals to small groups of friends and couples looking for adventure, Rural Rivers also offers booking for corporate and team building events. If you want to provide a unique experience for your employees, they can accommodate your group and provide all necessary equipment to ensure a safe, fun event. Helmets and all safety notions are provided at no extra cost. So, no matter what skill level you and your group are, you will be well looked after and safe on the trails.
Moonbike rentals are scheduled throughout the day in 60-90 minute intervals, with a 10-minute orientation. Business hours are 8 am-8 pm every day. The best time of the season to rent is dependent on the amount of snow. This usually falls between December and February. With a user-friendly design and a low center of gravity, you can be confident on the trails no matter how much experience you have. Pre-booking is the only way to get on the trails, so book early to save your spot!
