Combine an Algonquin Park canoe trip with a few days at the Algonquin Log Cabin for the perfect 5-day adventure! The canoe trip allows us to get into the interior of Algonquin. The campsites are spectacular and offer us good opportunities to see and hear wildlife. If we are lucky, we might catch sight of a large moose or hear a pack of wolves howl under the full moon! The Algonquin Log Cabin is our home for the last two days where we experience the wilderness by day and return to some rustic comfort in the evening.

Algonquin Park, just three hours from Toronto, covers 7,000 square kilometers of prime wilderness. The Park is world renowned for its waterways and abundant wildlife. The ideal way to experience Algonquin?s beauty is by canoe.

These five-day trips run every Monday to Friday from June to mid September.

We meet at 12.30pm at the Voyageur Quest rendezvous location 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 cooked by a campfire. Lying in our tent, we nod off to the sound of the west wind whistling high above.

Accommodation: camping in Algonquin Park.

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 beaver, 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.

Accommodation: camping in Algonquin Park.

The 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. 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 ?take out? in the late afternoon and transfer to the Algonquin Log Cabin. Take a shower, sauna, and enjoy wine and cheese followed by a delicious dinner at the Algonquin Log Cabin.

Accommodation: the Algonquin Log Cabin (double occupancy).

After breakfast, we head out for the day to explore the trails around the Algonquin Log Cabin. A hike along the trail to Music Lake features an interpretation of the boreal forest, the beaver pond, and spruce bogs. We have a picnic lunch at Music Lake before hiking to Surprise Lake where a 26-foot Voyageur Canoe waits. Enjoy a leisurely paddle as we island hop our way down the lake and arrive via canoe back at the Algonquin Log Cabin. Relax, swim or take a sauna. Canadian dinner followed by "Voices of Algonquin" night paddle.

Accommodation: the Algonquin Log Cabin (double occupancy).

Morning wild edible walk to Lookout Bluff overlooking Algonquin lakes. Return for lunch back at the Log Cabin. Depart after lunch.

None! The "Algonquin Canoe and Log Cabin" is for people at any level of experience. Other than those guests returning to Algonquin Park after a long break, most of our guests are experiencing Algonquin Park for the first time. Our pace is very relaxed, as the trip objective is to have fun, slow down and leave plenty of time to explore the beauty of the Park.

On the canoe/camping portion of this trip you will be encouraged to participate in setting up camp, gathering firewood, and meal preparation, as far as you are comfortable doing so. This gives you the opportunity to learn new skills and experience all the daily activities of an Algonquin canoe trip.
