Algonquin Park canoe trip

Our Algonquin canoe trip operation is located at Algonquin Park Access Point # 1. While the north west corner of Algonquin is our home, our reach extends to all of Algonquin and beyond. Our favorite route travels across the top or down the centre and more remote sections of Algonquin.

FAQs for Private Canoe Trip

Backcountry camping refers to camping in Algonquin Park’s interior campsites. On our canoe trips, the guide finds  the best campsite for the group. Each campsite has tent sites, a firepit, and a “thunderbox” (ie: toilet). We provide the tents, stoves, tarps, and any other equipment required to make a backcountry campsite into a backcountry palace. Water is taken from the lake and purified for drinking. All backcountry travel follows leave-no-trace principles as directed by the guide. 

No, you don’t. All of our guides are experienced instructors and will show you the ropes. 

Voyageur Quest’s guides are skilled outdoor professionals who ensure your canoe or cabin trip is an adventure of a lifetime. On top of being well versed in the natural and cultural history of Algonquin Park, our guides are warm, personable, and service-oriented. Most are gradates of post-secondary programs related to outdoor adventure and all possess industry certification in wilderness first aid, life-guarding, and canoe instruction.

You only need to bring your personal items: clothing, toiletries, and cameras. We provide all of the equipment. A complete list of what to bring will be emailed to your after booking. You can rent sleeping bags and mattresses for a small cost. If you forget anything, do not worry: we can rent, lend, or retail whatever you need from our fully stocked outfitting store.

Voyageur Quest canoe trips are participatory by nature. This includes learning how to paddle, portage (carry canoe overland
between lakes or around rapids).  Depending on the trip, you will paddle, portage and camp each day while our professional wilderness guide provides leadership and instruction on all aspects of living and traveling in the wilderness. You will be encouraged to participate in as far as you are comfortable doing so. This includes: learning how to paddle and portage a canoe, camping comfortably, preparation and creation of delicious meals, learning about the natural world, and the enjoyment of living in the outdoors.

However, there is a lot of flexibility on private canoe trips. Talk to our office about the option to upgrade to Safari Service. 

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 Park.

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 any dietary requirement. For special diets such as vegan, gluten free or lactose free we do charge a small fee in order to properly accommodate your needs.  Please be sure to describe your requirement in detail when making your booking. For severe allergies, it is recommended that you bring at least two EpiPens with you. 

Absolutely!   (and enjoy responsibly!)

For canoe trips: best advise is to bring liquor and/or wine. Decant glass bottles or cans into plastic containers. It is forbidden to bring glass or cans into Algonquin Park.
