ALGONQUIN CANOE TRIPS

We pride ourselves on serving incredible meals on our trip! Breakfasts typically involve juice, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs and bacon. Lunches are most often smorgasbords of fresh breads, meats, cheeses, hummus, vegetables, fruit, and baked cookies. A sample lodge dinner: venison (or vegetarian) stroganoff with fresh garden vegetables, vinaigrette salad, blackberry torte, coffee, and tea. A sample canoe or kayak dinner: rigatoni with fresh basil, Italian sausage (optional) and fresh vegetables, Caesar salad, garlic bread, baked apple desert

We can accommodate to all types of dietary requirements and preferences, some at a minor cost. Please be sure to inform us of any allergic or dietary concern when you book a trip.

For our fully-guided adventures, our packages include:

  • Accommodation (lodge or camping),
  • All meals
  • All necessary equipment
  • Park permits
  • Services of a wilderness guide.

Return transportation from Toronto can be added to the trip package price for an additional charge.

  • HST
  • Personal clothing
  • Sleeping bag (on canoe trips only). Rentals are available, just ask!
  • Transport from Toronto (available for additional cost).

Spring and early summer are the buggiest times of the year. 

We recommend bringing bug spray and during May and June a bug jacket.

The Friends of Algonquin Park have good wildlife  information on their website  

Our 3- and 5-day Algonquin Park wilderness adventures do not require any prior experience. Whether it be a canoe trip, lodge-based trip or sea kayak adventure, our trips are for people at any level of experience. Our pace is relaxed, as the objective is to have fun, slow down and leave plenty of time to explore the beauty of the Algonquin Park or Georgian Bay.

You should be able to be active for up to four hours (walking pace) at a time.

An average canoe or kayak trip may consist of one couple, a group of friends, and a few individuals traveling on their own. The male and female ratio is usually equal but varies from trip to trip. Algonquin Park canoe trips attract people from all over the globe, so you will likely be traveling with an international group. For our canoe trips, group size is usually between 6 and 8 people. On a Log Cabin adventure, group size can be up to 12-16 people. Voyageur Quest also operates private canoe and/or lodge-based trips of all shapes and sizes so if you don’t find a trip to fit, please contact our office and build a tailor made trip to fit
