Experience the grandeur of Algonquin Park on a horseback riding tour to a wilderness eco lodge. Explore the forest trails, the meandering creeks, and the countless lakes while on the back of a majestic horse. This is a great trip for both experienced and novice riders, as guidance and instruction will be given (if needed) as you journey through the wilderness.
Along the way keep a watchful eye for signs of the numerous animals that live in Algonquin Park. It is possible to see beaver, white tailed deer, moose, otters, or maybe even a rare glimpse of a wolf in the distance! It is often easier to see animals from horseback because we are travelling in a quiet and natural fashion.
This exciting package starts at the trail head near the park and you ride deep into the forest, ending your day at the lodge. Along the way in you may visit High Falls, the Grand View Lookout, Gut Rapids, cross numerous streams, and follow winding forest trails.
Once at the lodge you spend the second day exploring the area on horseback and at the end of the day you return to the cozy comforts of the lodge where you can relax on the deck, go for a swim in the private 30-acre lake, take a canoe for paddle, or luxuriate in the wood fired sauna, before you feast on some of the best food in Algonquin Park. After breakfast on the third day you saddle up for the 3hour ride back to the staging area.
For those not wanting to do the entire trip on horseback there is also a "Sidekick" package that includes riding into the lodge and being dropped off on the first day, and picked up on horseback for another 3 hour ride on the last day. The full day in between is yours to relax; go for a day trip by canoe, or try fishing at one of several fishing holes. Or, if golf is more to your liking, there is an 18-hole golf course only 10 minutes away by car.
