The 5-day Algonquin Park canoe and camping adventure features a mixture of a canoe trip and log cabin adventure. This trip is great for those people who would like to experience canoeing and camping in Algonquin Park but also have a little bit of log cabin comfort. This also makes a brilliant family adventure; please ask your Frontier Canada travel consultant for details
The 3 day/2-night canoeing part of the holiday presents excellent opportunities to see moose or hear wolves while the 2 days/2 nights at the Algonquin Log Cabin offer great hiking and back-country comfort.
The Algonquin Canoe Adventure is for people at any level of experience. The pace is very relaxed, as the trip objective is to have fun, slow down and leave plenty of time to explore the beauty of Algonquin Park.
You can just experience the Algonquin Canoe Trip portion of this stay (2 nights in the park). Ask us for a quotation including this in your tailor made holiday.
There are other trips that are worth considering –

"Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!"
Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!!! Two years ago we used this company for a holiday to BC and it was fantastic. This year we went to Alaska and the Yukon and Heidi organised the most wonderful trip, that went as smoothly as is possible. From the Arctic Circle to Kodiak Island everything was PERFECT (so rare in this day and age!!!) As for wildlife...wow! She arranged for us to travel by several different means of transport and to stay in a wide range of accommodation all of which gave us an idea of life in this vast area of North America. We are left with wonderful memories and thousands of beautiful photos.
