Bald Eagles on Round Lake




This fall, our canoe trips saw bald eagles on Kawawaymog lake at the mouth of the Amable du Fond. One of our Lodge guests, Tommy Vanhee sent in these pictures taken on a sunrise canoe excursion. In October, the construction team that is working on our new Kawawaymog island retreat saw these eagles daily circling above the island. Great to see these magnificent birds back in Algonquin.

Ehud and our Israeli Friends

We had the pleasure of hosting the families of Ehud Raanani and Alon Peled who travelled all the way from Israel to experience our Algonquin canoe trip and a few days at the log cabin. With children ages 7 to 19, both families had great energy and our guide team had a blast. Thanks Ehun and Alon and hope to see you all again!

Canada Day in a canoe - a tradition


Happy Canada Day! Love this shot taken on Canada day on an Algonquin park 3 day canoe trip.


Our family tradition is to canoe every Canada day and this year we maintained our record by paddling over to the Toronto islands in a Voyageur canoe. Hope most of you enjoyed a great holiday today!

A morning paddle down Surprise Lake

The north canoe shuttle down Surprise Lake was a treat this morning. The lake was like glass. Phil Lapierre, in the bow, is taking care of our canoe trips this summer.
