Introduction to Guided Canoe Trips by Mark in Algonquin Park
Ever wanted to get away, I mean really get away from it all? TV, the connected world, crowds and NOISE? If you have the desire, you probably have the need - A need that has been unfulfilled. A guided canoe trip in Algonquin Park is the answer!

Canoeing in Algonquin Park has been known to have positive influences on people. Being physically active is part of the canoe camping lifestyle and it can fill people with spirit - As they learn more about the outdoors and canoeing, they begin to learn more about themselves and their abilities to adapt to life in the great outdoors. Such gratification that comes from personal achievement
in this regard cannot be attained in an urban environment. Certainly, not possible in a noisy, connected & crowded world.

Algonquin Park offers a chance for the the traveller to go back in time to a simpler era, when humans relied more on themselves and their wit, rather than the technology of today to get them through the day. The solution we offer is thus:
Canoeing Burntroot Lake
For adults we offer flat-water canoe paddling only. No high intensity, adrenaline pumping rapids. We will take you to places where the noise factor is low and the solitude factor is high. By the end of the day, as evening approaches, a campsite will be selected for you and the party to offer the best in solitude and rest from the day’s journey.
All guided canoe trips will have a maximum party size of six guests (8 guests for private tours) and up to two guides. We like to keep a party size small - In this way each guest will receive more attention, while maintaining a sense of solitude that is not possible with larger groups.

Enjoy your trip as we guide you along the waterways and through the forests of Algonquin Park. Of course it isn’t all easy - You might have to slap at a few bugs and wipe sweat from your brow, portage a canoe or carry a pack, but it is all part of the fun and learning of canoe camping. Once camp is reached your hard work for the day is done. Our hard work continues: Camp in luxury and eat like a “King” as our guide(s) fawn over your needs at camp. Dinner and breakfast is served by us and while you sit back and enjoy your meal we will do our upmost to make your life around camp relaxed & comfortable. Light lunches on the trail or in the middle of a lake are also provided.

Everything is included. All you need to bring is yourself, your personal kit and suitable clothing. A full list of what is included is detailed in each canoe trip package. As well, once a reservation is made, you’ll be advised what you should bring for yourself; i.e. Personal kit items, camera, sunglasses, etc.

* Canoe trip packages are priced per person in Canadian funds. Taxes (13% HST) are extra.
