“I absolutely loved my time at the Algonquin Log Cabin! Cannot recommend this beautiful log cabin enough for its first-class service, its private, cozy comfort and the incredible proximity to the incredibly picturesque Canadian wilderness”
“If you like the outdoors and adventure, but not the packing, organizing, cooking, cleaning, tenting, and clean-up that comes with it, this is the trip for you. From the moment you settle in, it’s good meals, and as much adventure you can handle (be it the wooden sauna heated by a fire-breathing dragon, hiking, canoeing, or swimming). ”
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.
There are two indoor bathrooms for the guests to use in the Log Cabin with flushing toilets. All of the water in the building comes from our well and is filtered for drinking before reaching the faucet.
There is a shower in the shower/sauna house which has been fitted with an electric pump on solar power to increase the water pressure.
No. There is no electricity and no Wifi. There is a cell phone repeater tower within a 5 minute drive where you can get service.
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 graduates 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. A complete list of what to bring will be emailed to your after booking.
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 any dietary requirement. Please be sure to describe your requirement in detail when making your booking. For severe allergies, it is recommended that you bring at least one EpiPen with you.
