Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Meet at the Algonquin Log Cabin for lunch. Spend the early afternoon honing your canoe skills with a knowledgable intructor – a skill that is most useful when photographing animals from a canoe. Relax with some drinks at the end of the afternoon and talk photography with Rob. Some time will be set aside for packing bags for thefollowing day’s canoeing. Trade stories with your fellow adventurers around the hearth. Accommodation: Log Cabin
Day 2
It’s an early breakfast and away to the back-country portion of this adventure! Shuttle 20 minutes to the put-in where canoes are waiting. It’s a couple lakes and a couple portages before we arrive at our campsite. The different lakes and trails provide a variety of landscapes and opportunities to photograph wildlife. After a lunch at our campsite, the party sets out on their first moose (photo) hunt. Return to camp for an early dinner and then back out on the water for a “golden hour” photoshoot. Practice your hand at night sky photography or simply enjoy the fire and a favourite drink. Accommodation: camping
Day 3
Wake to the sounds of the guides making you hot drinks and breakfast. After a quick bite, it’s time to get back in the canoes for a sunrise photoshoot. Animals are very active at dawn and it’s not an opportunity to miss. Break camp and paddle your way back to the shuttle vehicles. End the trip with a cold drink and a smorgasbord lunch on the Voyageur Outfitter patio.

Client Testimonials

“I would thoroughly recommend this as a family experience – swimming in the lakes, paddling in stunning surroundings, spotting wildlife, sharing funny stories…”

Bronte

“Seeing moose up close and personally in a canoe is by far the best way to experience it.”

FAQs for Moose Safari

We are happy to accommodate  dietary requirements. For more speciality diets such as dairy free, vegan or gluten there is an additional charge.  Please be sure to describe your requirement in detail when making your booking. For severe allergies, it is recommended that you bring 2 EpiPens with you. 

Backcountry camping refers to camping in Algonquin Park’s interior campsites. On our canoe trips, the guide finds  the best campsite for the group. Each campsite has tent sites, a firepit, and a “thunderbox” (ie: toilet). We provide the tents, stoves, tarps, and any other equipment required to make a backcountry campsite into a backcountry palace. Water is taken from the lake and purified for drinking. All backcountry travel follows leave-no-trace principles as directed by the guide. 

No, you don’t. All of our guides are experienced instructors and will show you the ropes. 

Solo travelers are welcome! Our groups have up to eight guests per trip. Everyone becomes fast friends while canoeing and camping!

On the Moose Safari Adventure the group size is limited to 9 guests, Rob and the Voyageur Quest  Safari Guide team. Our guests range in age and nationality, however on this trip all guests usually have a shared passion for photography! 

It’s not unusual for guests to be trading emails at the end of their trips – it’s easy to make friends when you’re having so much fun!
