The Real McCall Snowmobiling &
Hot Springs Adventure Tour
Call 800.657.6464 for more info
Burgdorf Hot Springs are inaccessible in wintertime except by snowmobile, making this a perfect opportunity to enjoy the hot springs as nature intended. Enjoy the freedom a private tour brings – stopping along the way as much as you like for photo ops and those irresistibly Instagrammable moments – as well as the reassurance of traveling with a highly knowledgeable tour leader who will ensure that you have an exciting but safe experience. At the hot springs, lucky visitors might even glimpse one or more of the area’s most handsome residents as a number of elk, moose, and deer call McCall home.
A prearranged shuttle will take you to the trailhead at Payette Lake, where your snowmobile will be waiting for you. After being outfitted for the excursion in proper gear and listening to a quick safety talk, you and your tour leader will hit the gas – reaching speeds of up to 50 miles an hour along a 30-mile stretch of open terrain on six feet of powder. Once you arrive at the Burgdorf Hot Springs, you will have some time to enjoy soaking in one of three mineral pools before digging into a fully prepared lunch and a thermos filled with that most comforting of wintertime drinks – the hot toddy. Upon return, retreat to the spa where you will experience a luxurious 60-minute facial or massage at The Cove. Afterward, enjoy a $200 dining credit toward dinner at The Narrows Steakhouse, where you will take in breathtaking views of the Salmon River Mountains and Payette Lake.
- McCall’s snowfall season typically lasts from November until mid-March, though every once in a while, October and April receive a light sprinkle here and there.
- The Burgdorf Hot Springs maintain a year-round temperature of 100˚F, while the two smaller pools hover around 113˚F.
- A snowsuit, helmet, and snowmobile will be provided to you at the trailhead.
