“There is much to do at the Algonquin Log Cabin! Some paddled a 10-person canoe, while others fished or soaked up the sunshine on the dock. Other highlights included a hike to a scenic lookout point and dining together by candlelight at a harvest table.”
“Our experience at the Algonquin Log Cabin provided serenity in a truly secluded pocket of the park. The cabin itself exuded warmth and comfort thanks to the incredible stone fireplace that beckoned us all for chats. ”
It means that our cabin is not hooked up to grid electricity. We operate without the need for electricity aside from filling our water cisterns from our well, for which we use a generator.

Solo travelers are welcome! Our groups have up to 12 guests per trip. Everyone becomes fast friends while canoeing and hiking!
There are as many as 12 guests on each trip and three staff members. Our guests range in age and nationality. We do our best to sort our guests into like-demographics (ie: families together; adults together). It’s not unusual for guests to be trading emails at the end of their trips – it’s easy to make friends when you’re having so much fun!
You do not require any prior experience. We host a range of guests from first-timers to grizzled outdoors people every week. Our pace is relaxed and the objective is to have fun, slow down, and leave plenty of time to explore the beauty of the Algonquin area.
You should be able to be active for up to four hours (walking pace) at a time. While travelling in the backcountry, we make frequent stops for snacks, hydration, toilet, and to admire the gorgeous views!
We provide fresh and mostly whole-foods meals that are prepared with care and skill. Whether you are in the backcountry or in our Algonquin Log Cabin, you will be served appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Our guests are consistently impressed with our elevated cuisine. Please explain in detail any special dietary needs or allergies you might have during your booking. Kid-friendly foods are added to Family Trips.
We are happy to accommodate dietary requirements. For more speciality diets such as dairy free, vegan or gluten there is an additional charge. Please be sure to describe your requirement in detail when making your booking. For severe allergies, it is recommended that you bring 2 EpiPens with you.
