Itinerary

Algonquin Park is Canada's favourite canoe trip destination. Just three hours north of Toronto, Ontario, our Algonquin 3-day Family Canoe trip offers incredible opportunities to see and photograph moose, listen to wolves howl and learn about other wildlife. Seasoned guides, tasty backcountry meals and beautiful campsites make this trip the ultimate way for families to experience Algonquin Park for the first time.

Don't worry about experience! Our guides teach all the skills along the way! Most important, our canoe trips are a true vacation. We provide all the equipment and our pace is relaxed. There is plenty of time to swim, explore or take a nap! Group size is limited to eight guests and a Voyageur Quest guide who prepares delicious meals allowing you to put up your feet after an invigorating day on the trail

Our Algonquin Park canoe trips are convenient with trips leaving every Monday and Friday from Toronto or Algonquin. Transportation, food, equipment and the services of a professional guide are all provided.


DAY 1

Optional 7:45am pick up in downtown Toronto or 12:30pm rendezvous at the Voyageur Quest canoe outpost situated at the northwest corner of Algonquin Park. After lunch, we load our packs and canoe into Algonquin Park. Along the way we learn how to paddle, portage and have loads of time to swim in the clean freshwater. We set up camp on a scenic point covered in Red Pine and enjoy our first meal and campfire. Lying in our tent, we nod off to the sound of the west wind whistling high above.

DAY 2

After a tasty breakfast, we break camp and paddle east through a series of classic Algonquin Park lakes. A floating lunch gives us the energy to paddle up a bog where we have a great opportunity to see beavers, Great Blue herons and moose. Our final stop is on a beautiful lake where we have the afternoon to hike, swim, and fish or take a siesta! We enjoy fresh baked bannock cooked over the fire and listen to legends and myths of travelling through the Canadian wilderness.

DAY 3
The distinctive smell of fresh coffee and bacon frying gets us out of our sleeping bags and up for breakfast. After packing, out we go for a hike through a mixed maple forest learning about the unique mix of flora and fauna. Option to learn to solo a canoe and to navigate as we paddle back to the take out, stopping along the way for a large smorgasbord lunch. We return to the rendezvous location for a 3pm departure.
