Since 1991, Voyageur Quest’s mission has been to make wilderness adventures for the inquisitive spirit. Our trips focus on learning, exploring the wilderness, having fun and being comfortable. Voyageur Quest operates off the grid at Algonquin Park’s northwest corner. We love it here as we are miles from any highway and the busy highway 60 corridor.

Voyageur Quest specializes in Algonquin Park and wilderness programming. We operate Algonquin canoe trips, Algonquin Log Cabin and Cottage based trips, an Algonquin Outfitter, Outdoor Educational Programs and Team building events. If you are interested in working with us, please call our Toronto office at (416) 486-3605 or email Eva at

We are entirely thrilled to have our returning senior managers for yet another season: Seppe in operations and Malcolm at the Outfitter. Our senior staff will be leading us in putting together fabulous teams at all of our operations: canoe guiding, log cabin guiding, outfitting and special events. Their leadership has been integral in shaping and ensuring high-quality adventures and a fantastic staff community. Should you be interested in guiding or general support please check out what is available and apply. We look forward to speaking with you.

Scroll through our website from the point of view of our customers and imagine guiding or supporting some of these programs.  We are proud of the work we do, of our culture of community and capability, and of the wonderful accolades, we get from our customers.
