Tour Highlights

  • Algonquin forest
  • Cascading waterfall
  • Beaver pond (Moffat Pond)

Only 3 hours north of Toronto, Algonquin Provincial Park is Ontario's oldest park and one of the largest in Canada.  It boasts over 7600 square kilometers, with over 2000 freshwater lakes.  Within its borders can be found deer, moose, beaver, wolves, bears, and many other wild animals, all in their natural habitats.  This park is so large and so varied that one end of the park can have entirely different weather from the other end!  This park is the perfect location for your next winter adventure.

During the trip, you stay in the cozy comforts of a remote wilderness eco-lodge. Remote but comfortable it comes complete with an outdoor, wood-fired hot tub and sauna! Perfect for relaxing after a hard day of having fun in the snow! It is lit with propane and kerosene lanterns and is heated with a wood furnace and a wood stove, so you don't need to worry about sleeping in a tent and being cold at night. Unless you'd like to try your hand at building a Quinzee (a traditional snow hut) and sleep there for the night. Knowing that there is a warm room nearby always makes this idea more appealing!

Meeting point: The lodge is located approximately a 3-hour drive north of Toronto. Pick up and drop off in downtown Toronto is available for an additional cost.

Information

Guide information: 

Your guides are experienced and knowledgeable of the area. Tour includes half day of dogsledding, one day of cross country skiing and a half day of snowshoeing.

Accommodation: Accommodations are in a backcountry lodge in the park. This eco-lodge still provides all the finer comforts, such as indoor plumbing, battery-powered hot showers, and even an outdoor wood-fired hot tub and sauna! And with 17 private bedrooms, there is more than enough space. Rooms are private but shower and washroom facilities are shared.

Transportation: Trips originate and end in Algonquin Park.  Transportation arrangements to and from Toronto available for an additional cost.

Weather: Average winter temperatures range between -5 and -25 degrees Celsius.

Meals & Dining: All meals from dinner on the first day to lunch on the last day are included.

We arrive at the Eco-Lodge, on the southern border of Algonquin Park, by early afternoon. It is here that we meet up with our dog sled teams. Following an introduction to the dogs and instruction on how to handle the sleds we set off for a 2 hour dog sled ride. This is always an exciting experience – the dogs barking and pulling at the dogsleds, the trees whipping past us, and the breeze in our faces. We dogsled into the majestic forests surrounding Algonquin Park along private trails. There is also a good chance that we may see some wildlife like moose or even a lone wolf!

Our second day’s activity is Cross Country Skiing. We strap on our cross country skis and follow the groomed ski trails through Algonquin Park. Our trail will lead us through hardwood bush – an excellent place to see moose or their tracks in the snow at the very least. We will stop for a trail lunch in a quaint prospectors’ tent for a chance to rest and warm up by a roaring fire.

We trade in our skis for Snowshoes on our third day. Again we voyage into the forests of Algonquin Park, but today we make our own trails! As we snowshoe our way through the crisp and untouched snow we should keep an eye out for the ever present signs of wildlife. This is how much of Canada was traveled – you can almost imagine yourself as a seasoned explorer!
