Overview

Join us on an Algonquin Park canoeing and hiking day tour to the oldest provincial park of Canada. If you want to explore a real Canadian nature in Ontario, this 1 day trip is an excellent opportunity. Tour is great for beginners as the whole trip is guided.
After your pick up in Toronto, we will drive to Algonquin Provincial Park and start our day at Canoe Lake with 2 hours of canoeing and swimming (optional). Don’t worry if you don’t have any paddle experience. Our tour guide will give you a paddle lesson before canoeing and the tour guide will be canoeing with the group the whole time. We will spend 1 – 2 hours on the water, depending on the weather conditions. In the summer season, you will have time to swim around Popcorn Island. Life jackets are provided so you can jump in even if you are not a swimmer!
As the group, you will decide which other trails you will hike (weather permitted).
