Optional 7:45am pick up in downtown Toronto or 12:30pm rendezvous at the VQ canoe outpost situated at Algonquin Park’s northwest corner near South River. After an orientation, brief lesson and lunch, canoe across the lake and into Algonquin Park. Along the way learn how to paddle, portage and swim in the clean freshwater. Set up camp on a scenic point covered in Red Pine and enjoy your first meal and campfire. Lying in your tent, nod off to the sound of the west wind whistling high above.Close
After a tasty breakfast, break camp and paddle east through a series of classic Algonquin Park lakes. A floating lunch gives you the energy to paddle up a bog where you have a great opportunity to see beavers, great blue herons and moose.

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