Winner of the "Best Winter package in Canada" by the Canadian Tourism Commision

Winter at the Algonquin Log Cabin is a true snowy wonderland for dog sledding, snowshoeing and backcountry skiing. Off the beaten track and very private, the Algonquin Log Cabin was built for active adventure types whose idea of a first class weekend (or anytime) adventure is to head to a remote lakeside cabin with special friends or family to enjoy active days and amazing food. The Algonquin Log Cabin can accommodate 12 guests. For larger groups, our Pinecroft Cabin (which can accommodate an additional 6 guests) is just steps away.

Private Log Cabin

Hidden on a quiet lake at Algonquin Park’s northwest corner, the Algonquin Log Cabin makes for the ideal private cabin weekend. With a talented cook preparing tasty meals, a guide to take you on scenic excursions by snowshoe, ski or dog sled, your family or group of friends are in for a unique combination of a rustic log cabin adventure and a catered winter safari.The luxury here is in the wilderness lakeside location with first class guide and cook service. Feast on tortiere with parmesan risotto, roasted vegetables, and our famous sticky pudding with hot fudge sauce. Meals are served at the large harvest table in front of the massive fireplace. Head out at night for torch lit skating. Try the luge run down the ridge trail.

Make Your Own Adventure

Unplug and remember the feeling of truly getting away. The Algonquin Log Cabin does not have cell service or electricity. Cozy, comfortable and free of distractions, the 2-night private experience offers your group a chance to connect in person, laugh, and have fun in a gorgeous natural playground.Private Algonquin Park cabin weekends are shaped to your group.Hit the trails for as long or as little as you like. Add dogsledding. Talk to Nikoline, our outstanding chef, about your menu preferences. Wild game, vegetarian, gluten free – Nik’s cooking and baking is truly wonderful and will shape accordingly.

Client Testimonials

“Thank you so much for an incredible weekend. The fact that you got 11 of my friends to challenge themselves and try snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, is amazing. The food was incredible! Best Bachelorette!” 

Brook 

“Voyageur Quest organized the quintessential Canadian winter cabin experience; snowshoeing, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, sauna… and they did an amazing job. Their hospitality was beyond expectation. If you get the chance, get out and book a guided outdoor experience with Voyageur Quest; you won’t be disappointed.”

On top of being well versed in the natural and cultural history of Algonquin Park, our guides are warm, personable, and service-oriented.

You only need to bring your personal items: clothing, toiletries, and cameras. A complete list of what to bring will be emailed to you after booking.

Due to COVID-19 all Log Cabin trips during the pandemic will be considered private trips and no groups will be mixed.

Pre-COVID-19: 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 specialty 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. 

Absolutely!   (and enjoy responsibly!)

Bring whatever you wish. Best advise is to bring a bag of ice with you as well. Remember: we are off grid – that means no fridge! We can provide you with a cooler to use for your stay.
