Itinerary

While Algonquin Park is Canada?s most popular canoe trip destination, few people have experienced the stunning beauty of the Park in winter. Frozen lakes, waist deep snow, wildlife tracks, the howl of a wolf and the crisp clear air are just a few of the delights of a winter experience. Beyond the sheer beauty, the excitement of mushing your own team of huskies or cross country skiing through the wilderness of the Almaquin trail is sure to keep you on your toes!

These three-day experiences feature comfortable lodge accommodation at the Algonquin Log Cabin Lodge. Located at Algonquin Park, the lodge features authentic log cabin construction amidst spectacular wilderness.

Accommodation is double occupancy with shared indoor washrooms, as well as a sauna and shower cabin. Group size is limited to 12 guests and two Voyageur Quest guides who prepare delicious meals allowing you to put up your feet after the invigorating day on the trail.

Day 1
Arrive at the the Algonquin Log Cabin Lodge at 12:30pm where lunch awaits. After a hot lunch, we spend the afternoon exploring Surprise Lake on snowshoes. A tasty dinner in front of the wood stove completes our day.

Day 2
After a hearty Canadian breakfast, we pack a lunch and head out on skis to the Almaquin trail. The trails are incredibly beautiful. For those that are keen for the backcountry, the pine laced shoreline awaits on Surprise Lake! Other favourite options include ice fishing, Quincy building and toasting toes in the warm confines of the cabin! Another home-cooked feast and further relaxing finishes our day.

Day 3
Harnesses, gee and ha, and ganglines are just a few of the expressions we pick up as we spend the morning mushing our own team of huskies. After a trail lunch, we depart for Toronto arriving at 7pm.

*For Friday departures: Day 1 - dogsled, Day 2 - backcountry ski, and Day 3 snowshoe.

HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU NEED? WHAT KIND OF SHAPE DO YOU NEED TO BE IN?
None!
The Footsteps of the Pioneer is for people at any level of experience. Many of our guests are experiencing the wilderness in winter for the first time. For the most comfortable experience we recommend you do some regular exercises before joining us. The mushing requires a moderate - not strenuous - workout!

IS IT SAFE? WHO ARE THE GUIDES?
In over thirteen years of operating, no one has ever sustained a serious injury on any trip. Our primary concern while you are with us is your safety. Voyageur Quest guides are qualified professionals and trained in wilderness first aid. They are skilled outdoorsmen and women who are there to ensure your winter trip is an adventure of a lifetime. On top of being well versed in the natural and cultural history of northern Ontario, our guides are selected for their love of the people and the land.

WHAT ARE THE PEOPLE LIKE?
Your travelling companions will be some of the most unique and interesting people anywhere. Our guests are active, involved people with an adventurous spirit! The ages of most of our guests range from late twenties to mid seventies. While a group of 10 or more ensures the exclusivity of the lodge, there is no reason you can't come alone. Approximately one quarter of our guests come by themselves.
