Guided Canoe Trips

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 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, clothing and a sleeping bag. If necessary, a sleeping bag can be provided for you (Please advise before arrival), but we prefer you bring your own. 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. temperature rated sleeping bag, personal kit items, camera, sunglasses, etc.
For 2018, a variety of guided canoe trips are offered:
  • For the beginner with a thirst to learn the ways of wood, wind & water.
  • The avid outdoor enthusiast who knows that being outdoors is time well spent.
  • The experienced paddler who longs for more than just a weekend trip.
  • Private tours can also be arranged via email.
