algonquin canoeing

Algonquin Park in Ontario’s interior, presents a natural wilderness beauty at its very best. We will be traveling through many beautiful lakes using light weight canoes and short easy portages. Different campsites along the way give us opportunity to sample the nuances of this rich natural region.

Besides Algonquin Park’s natural beauty, the wildlife viewing is outstanding. Paddlers may see beavers, bears, minks, and moose feeding by the waterways. And if you like to try your hand at fishing, the lakes are the place to drop a line. There will be ample time each day to relax and explore the surrounding areas of Algonquin Park, swim, fish, or practice your paddling technique.
Cost: Cdn: $820 + 13% HST [Federal Tax] Book 2 or more: $770 pp (round trip transportation from Toronto to Algonquin Park is available at $95 pp.)
