Explore Algonquin Park's western boundary on a 3-day lodge based adventure. Canoe in search of moose on early morning canoe excursions, hike to scenic lookouts, and enjoy tasty home cooked meals in front of the stone fireplace. These three-day experiences feature rustic accommodation at the Algonquin Log Cabin.
Located on Surprise Lake, the Log Cabin combines a scenic and peaceful location with knowledgeable wilderness guides, warm hospitality and an intimate ambiance.
