Client Testimonials

This was our family’s fifth year at the winter log cabin, and 9 years since our first summer trip with VQ. Every time it’s been a highlight of our year. The winter cabin in particular is magical — a rustic winter wonderland, with delicious food, excellent guides and total disconnection from civilization and city life. (Although warm and cosy, bear in mind there is no electricity!) Marc-Andre, Heather and Emily were a particularly wonderful team in 2018. We can’t wait to continue the tradition!

Taylor 

We had the pleasure of staying at the Algonquin Log Cabin February 19-21 for a spectacular winter wonderland! We had booked a 3 day winter lodge adventure through Voyageur Quest that included snow shoe, cross country ski and dogsledding. The entire experience from the initial emails and inquisitive phone calls, up to the day we left was nothing short of amazing! The cabin and surrounding area was just beautiful.

While some of us witness this change in temperature and develop a growing sense of forboding of the long cold nights to come, the shovelling of snow, the trudging through slush, I say phooey. We live in Canada, we are
