Algonquin Park Hiking

Algonquin Provincial Park, known for its stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife, Algonquin Park offers a range of outdoor activities for nature enthusiasts. One of the best ways to experience the park’s natural beauty is through an Algonquin Park hiking tour. What sets Algonquin Park apart is the ever-changing scenery throughout the seasons.

Spring: Wildlife Watching and Moose Spotting

As the snow melts and nature awakens, spring is the perfect time to explore Algonquin Park’s wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for moose, as they are known to frequent the park during this season. During winter road maintenance operations, salt is applied to Highway 60, which runs through Algonquin Park. This salt attracts moose to the roadside ditches, as they have salt-deficient diets during the winter. This natural phenomenon creates a unique opportunity for visitors to easily spot moose during a leisurely drive along the highway on a spring morning or evening. Please note, Algonquin park hiking tour DOESN’T GUARANTEE A WILDLIFE SPOTTING.

Summer: Hiking and Swimming

With its vast network of trails, Algonquin Park hiking tour offers endless opportunities for hiking enthusiasts. Whether you’re up for a challenging 11 km hike on trails like Mizzy Lake or Centennial Ridges, or prefer a shorter hike to Bat Lake, Visitor Centre, or Ragged Falls, there’s a trail for every skill level. Along the way, take a refreshing dip in one of the park’s crystal-clear lakes to cool off from the summer heat.

If you would like to try canoeing in Algonquin Park, you can join our canoeing and hiking trip from May to October.

Fall: A Spectacle of Colors

When autumn arrives, Algonquin Park transforms into a painter’s palette of vibrant colors. The changing leaves create a breathtaking display that attracts visitors from near and far. Take a leisurely stroll along one of the park’s scenic trails and immerse yourself in the beauty of the fall foliage. Don’t forget your camera, as you’ll want to capture these picturesque moments.

If you are looking for winter experience, join our snowshoeing tour in Algonquin.
