Your Wildlife & Adventure Tour
This three-day experience features camping accommodation. Group size is limited to eight guests and a guide who prepares delicious meals allowing you to put your feet up after an invigorating day on the trail. These three-day trips leave every Monday and Friday.
No Experience Necessary
You do not need any prior experience or a high level of fitness to take part in this tour. The ‘Algonquin Canoe Trip’ 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.
Day 1 - Arrive in Algonquin Provincial Park
Optional 07:45 pick up in downtown Toronto (additional cost) or meet at 12:30 at the Voyageur Quest Canoe Outpost. After an orientation, canoe lesson and lunch, paddle across the lake and into Algonquin Park. Along the way learn how to paddle and portage and stop for a swim in the clean fresh water. Set up camp on a scenic point covered in Red Pine and enjoy dinner by the campfire. Lying in your tent, fall asleep to the sound of the west wind whistling high above.
Day 2 - Algonquin Provincial Park
Early morning paddle in search of moose. Return for a tasty breakfast and then break camp to paddle deeper into Algonquin Park and explore the lakes and rivers. A floating lunch is served before paddling up a bog where you’re likely to catch sight of beavers, great blue herons and moose. The final stop is at a beautiful lake where you have the afternoon to hike, swim, fish or take a siesta! Feast on another backcountry gourmet creation and bannock cooked over the fire. Take in the night sky and share stories and laughter around the fire.
Day 3 - Depart Algonquin Provincial Park
The distinctive smell of fresh coffee and bacon frying gets you out of your sleeping bags and up for breakfast. After packing, hike through mixed maple forest learning about the unique mix of flora and fauna. Learn to solo a canoe and to navigate as you paddle back to the take out, stopping along the way for a large smorgasbord lunch. Return to the canoe outpost around 15.00. If choosing to take the shuttle back to Toronto it arrives back at around 19.00.
