On this trip, you’ll learn everything you need to know to safely and confidently go on your own canoe trips with the help of one of our trained guides.

This starts on day one, going over each of our packs, understanding why we’re bringing what we’re bringing, and how to travel with it through the wilderness.

For first time paddlers, this first day will be an introduction to being on the water: how to paddle, how to steer a canoe, and how to navigate the backcountry lake systems.

Once we’re in the backcountry, you’ll have the chance to pick your own site and practice essential skills like setting up your tent, how to assemble a weatherproof tarp system, building a fire fit for royalty and, of course, cooking over that open flame.

On travel days, we’ll dig into these skills even further, offering the chance for you to put them into practice, while also learning about the local flora, fauna, and cultural history of Algonquin Park.

Our trips also run well into September and October.

To us, autumn is one of the best times of year for canoe tripping – while also offering the element shift to colder weather.
