WHY ALGONQUIN PARK

Algonquin Park is often referred to as the Gem of the Ontario Parks system. Ontario’s oldest and largest provincial park, Algonquin Park holds a special place in the heart of many naturalists, canoeists and backcountry solitude seekers. Algonquin Park is the natural destination of choice for visitors to Ontario looking to spend quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Algonquin Park is almost 8000 square kilometres of lakes, streams, rivers, bogs, forests in the rugged Canadian Shield. Home to abundant wildlife, the parks most famous residents include moose, wolves and black bears. Many smaller mammals including playful river otters, foxes, chipmunks, squirrels and raccoons and a wide variety of waterfowl including osprey, herons, and loons are often seen by park visitors.

Canoeing is the best way to navigate Algonquin Park with over 1500 km of canoe routes that follow lakes, streams and portage trails throughout the park’s interior.

The Almaguin Highlands Forgotten Trails are well signed and easily accessible without a vehicle by guests at the Edge. Hiking trails range from one to six km in length. The Tower trail boasts a spectacular outlook over the rolling hills, especially in the autumn when fall colours are at their peak.

Basically, the place is the absolute BEST and we are so excited to share it with you!
