Algonquin Solo Traveller Adventures
I have recently returned from a wonderful five (5) day canoe trip in northwestern Algonquin Park organized by Voyageur Quest and led by a superlative guide named Evan. I could not have had a better canoe trip than I did with Voyageur Quest. The environment, the pace of activity, the food and equipment, the company, and particularly Evan’s skills and affability made the trip quite excellent. I am seriously contemplating taking my next vacation with Voyageur Quest. Moreover, I strongly encourage anyone else wishing to sample the Canadian wilderness to reserve a spot on a trip with Voyageur Quest.
Took a 3-day guided canoe trip with Voyageur Quest. The guides, Mark and Sam, were absolutely amazing in their care and competence in taking care of the many people that were on this trip…about 10 people all together. I travelled solo and there were a few other solo travellers and 3 couples.
The food was much better than I have ever done on my camping trips with friends. Definitely try this out if you want to challenge yourself and still have the luxury of having well trained guides.

Your muscles stiffen and brace for the bend up ahead … and you tumble as the sled lurches into the turn. … Read More

As I’m trying to take photos from the porch, territorial grey jays swoop in just above my head with a menacing flutter that has the subtlety of a Harley Davidson. Fair play: I’m on their turf. The Algonquin Log Cabin is an isolated dot next to Surprise Lake … Read More
