Summer adventure tour from a wilderness lodge in Algonquin Park


Spend an exciting three days in Algonquin Park, canoeing, hiking, fishing and exploring at a rustic wilderness adventure lodge. Enjoy a sunrise paddle, take in an edible wild hike or just relax and sip your drink at the backcountry adventure lodge. Canoe in search of moose on early morning canoe excursions, hike to scenic lookouts, and enjoy tasty home cooked meals in front of the stone fireplace.

Howl for wolves, hike the paths and canoe through the mist. Finish the day relaxing on the dock, in the sauna or in front of the fireplace. Located on Surprise Lake, the lodge combines a scenic and peaceful location with knowledgeable wilderness guides, warm hospitality and an intimate ambiance. 

Your trip starts with a hike and paddle by voyageur canoe to the lodge. Once at the lodge, you will have a chance to do some sunrise fishing, participate in interpretive hikes and wildlife watching, attend a workshop for bushcraft or go on an afternoon paddle.

In the evenings you will enjoy a delicious meal and relax in front of a roaring fire.  Star gaze, take a sauna or go on a evening paddle. This trip is filled with interesting and unique guided excursions, or choose the unguided option, and explore the area on your own.

The five-day Algonquin Park experiences, run Monday to Friday, and feature two nights camping on the canoe trip and two nights Log Cabin accommodation. Few things are greater for a family than sharing the taste of adventure and spending quality time together in a natural setting. Algonquin Park, located just three hours from Toronto, is the perfect setting for this Canadian signature experience. Canoe Algonquin’s waterways with a professional guide and if you are lucky, catch the sight of a large moose or hear a pack of wolves howling at night! Finish the adventure with two night’s accommodation at the cozy Algonquin Log Cabin.

A floating lunch gives us the energy to paddle up a bog where we have a great opportunity to see beaver, Great Blue herons and moose.

Enjoy fresh baked bannock and marshmallows cooked over the fire and listen to legends and myths of travelling through the Canadian wilderness.

paddle back to the take out, stopping along the way for a large smorgasbord lunch. Finish your canoe trip at  Algonquin canoe base camp and take a short transfer to the Algonquin Log Cabin.
