Algonquin Park Ontario, Canoe Tour

Only 3 hours north of Toronto, Algonquin Park is Ontario’s oldest Provincial Park and one of the largest in Canada with over 2000 fresh water lakes. Within the borders of the park can be found many wild animals such as moose, deer, beaver, wolves and bears, all in their natural habitats.

Day 1 Toronto – Algonquin Provincial Park

Pick up at Finch Subway Station. After a leisurely drive through the heart of Ontario, have lunch on the shores of Rock Lake in Algonquin Park. In our 'expedition weight' kevlar canoes we paddle in to one of the interior lakes of the park (Pen Lake). Before we start our guide will brief us on the necessary skills and techniques for canoeing. Since this is a true interior wilderness camp we have to bring all our gear, including tents. Set up camp and enjoy your first meal cooked over the fire.

Days 2 and 3 Algonquin Provincial Park

Spend the day exploring a meandering river. After a short prtage, paddle the slow moving waters of the South Madawaska River. On Day 3 pack up the gear, oad the canoes and paddle out for a new camp. After several small portages and 3 lakes to cross, reach  Galeairy Lake, a beautiful lake on the east edge of Algonquin Park. After setting up camp there will be ample time to relax, swim, read a book or even go fishing for dinner!

(For 3 day itinerary, replace Day 3 with Day 4)

Day 3 or 4 Toronto

After breakfast pack up camp. We will get back to the van in the early afternoon and start the drive back, arriving in Toronto in the early evening.
