Algonquin Canoe Trips & Cabin-Based Adventures

Voyageur Quest designs and operates Algonquin Park's most authentic, inspiring and unforgettable adventures. Voyageur Quest specializes in Algonquin Park Canoe Trips, Lodge Based Adventure Trips and Private Cottage Rentals. Our adventures highlight natural connections with green spaces and people and celebrate being active in the great outdoors. Our natural ingredients - exceptional guiding, unique lodging, outstanding local cuisine, and more than 25 years of experience - combine to craft first-class adventure with unparalleled off-the-grid service at one of Canada's most iconic destinations. Recognized as one of Canada's "Best in Class Signature Experiences", Voyageur Quest adventure's have a character - born of originality, continuous attention to service, gratitude to our customers and Algonquin Park - that simply can not be replicated.

Natural Connections

Hit Pause. Unplug. Settle into a rhythm paddling, hear the fire crackle or the wind howl, notice the fifty shades of green, inhale the view. Nature's own surround sound and retinal display require no re-defining. In the clutter of busy, nurture the craving to connect. Share laughter around a fire, share the ritual of morning dip, cast a line and share the anticipation. It's always been about this natural connection.... to the place, to the people, to the rhythms of Algonquin Park.

Al-Fresco Active

Algonquin Park is our playground and there is so much to do! Our adventures are about getting outside, being active and experiencing the unparalleled wow factor of Algonquin Park. The Outdoors is in our DNA. We make sure you are set up and comfortable for backcountry skiing, canoeing, torchlit skating or stew and brewing! We operate year-round so there are lots of adventure options and trips, including cabin-based adventures, to satisfy a range of activity levels.

Off the Grid Unique Accommodations

Our off-the-grid accommodations allow for an experience that blurs the line between sense of place, space and adventure. Our Algonquin Log Cabin oozes rustic charm honouring the surrounding beauty of its wilderness home. Our Algonquin Island Retreat centers you in exquisite solitude tracking 360 lake views, the rising and setting of the sun, light and shadow - echoing the inspiration of Tom Thomson's art. Our floating sauna and special event floathouse connect you to the splash of the water, the call of the loon and the dancing night sky. Our Cabins breathe adventure and offer a range of options for you to experience.

Exceptional Service

Off-the-grid hospitality allows us to highlight our connection to Algonquin Park while showcasing our commitment to hitting all the notes of an exceptional level of service. Hand-picked oyster mushrooms sauteed over the Rumford fire, a lake-side wine and cheese, and a splash of the good stuff with an evening coffee - all heighten the senses. Such touches come naturally to our guides who seamlessly blend the best practices of naturalists, chefs, and consummate hosts.

While some of us witness this change in temperature and develop a growing sense of forboding of the long cold nights to come, the shovelling of snow, the trudging through slush, I say phooey. We live in Canada, we are

As I’m trying to take photos from the porch, territorial grey jays swoop in just above my head with a menacing flutter that has the subtlety of a Harley Davidson. Fair play: I’m on their turf. The Algonquin Log Cabin is an isolated dot next to Surprise Lake … Read More

Magical Canine Ride

EARLY MORNING. Algonquin Provincial Park. Crisp air hits your face and blasts the sleep out of your system. The insides of your gloves become damp and you struggle to hold the bar linking you to a sled and 24 sprinting feet. Your muscles stiffen and brace for the bend up ahead … and you tumble as the sled lurches into the turn. … Read More

Client Testimonials

“This trip totally exceeded my expectations! I travelled by myself and was joined by 8 other travellers and our guide Hannah, who was excellent by the way… knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and hard working.

Other than myself, I believe only 1 other person was familiar with camping and paddling a canoe, yet everyone managed just fine with the amount of paddling, portaging etc. I’m still shocked at the quality of food that we were able to have on an interior camping trip – well done VQ.

After 2 nights of camping the lodge was a welcoming sight. Very spacious, well equipped and stunning. The beds were comfortable, the sauna was great, the sun deck was nice, the screened in porch was inviting, and the food was out of this world.

All the staff at the lodge were amazing as well and contributed to a great experience. I would totally recommend this place to anyone”

Absolutely one of the best winter experiences me and my husband have been on!  A rustic charming log cabin in the middle of nowhere, with the chance to detach from the world as we know it and step back in time a little. It has a huge fireplace which makes the place cosy and warm, charming decor, a great living and dining area, beautiful location, and a group of people who will make it a memorable stay. There is a wood-fired sauna to relax at the end of a long day.

Our guides Mauricio and Laramie, and cook Sage, absolutely made it feel like a family. They were so friendly, knowledgable and super encouraging on some of the challenges the activities may present! The food was exceptional, all fresh, home-made and filling, we were never hungry, and there was always a freshly baked snack and hot chocolate or tea/coffee on hand to warm up!

Everything was well organised from the pickup in Toronto, to the activities, to the bus back! First day was snow-shoeing, a beautiful 2hrs getting to know the area, and the downhil stretch was the most fun I’ve had in the snow since I was a kid!! The 2nd day was cross country skiing – having never skied before we were nervous but Mauricio taught us well and kept the moral up, even when it got hard! But it was such an acheivement and we loved every minute. The afternoon you have the option to do more of either activity and we took a short hike across the lake to an IGLOO/Ice hut – so cool! A few of the kids went down the luge! The evenings were always so wonderful, there were games, campfire stories, broomball if you fancy/its not too cold! The final day was the dog-sledding provided by an external company, however, it was super awesome! Mushing is hard work but super fun!

All in all I couldn’t recommend this enough and we will be back, perhaps with friends or for the canoeing trip/summer stay! Whether you’re Canadian looking to see the best your country can offer, and experience something different, or if you’re a tourist wanting to experience a true Canadian winter weekend – it’s an absolute must! Thank you all, and thank you John, for creating a dream adventure for all to experience!
