These Algonquin Park canoe trips are perfect for people on a tight schedule or a tight budget, but who still want an introduction into wilderness camping. We provide all food, permits, ... morea knowledgeable guide, and all equipment (except personal items like sleeping bags, flashlights – a packing check list is provided). We can even provide transportation from Toronto as an option.
Day 1 – Arrive in Algonquin Park Pickup at Finch Subway Station in Toronto (optional – you can drive yourself to Algonquin Park). We meet at 1pm at the Permit Office at Rock Lake in ... moreAlgonquin Park. Before we start your guide will instruct everyone on the necessary skills and techniques for canoeing. With your “Expedition weight” kevlar canoes we will paddle into one of the interior lakes of Algonquin Park (Pen Lake). While kevlar canoes are much more fragile than other canoes, requiring you to be careful around rocks, you will appreciate their relative lightness on portages and their speed in the water. This differentiates Call Of The Wild from other canoe tripping companies. Our canoes are much more expensive and fragile, but much lighter and faster than the more durable whitewater canoes they use. 

At the end of this three day canoe trip you won’t be an expert but you will know how to pack and steer a canoe. After a three hour paddle (including a 300m portage) you will arrive at your wilderness camp. Since this is a true interior wilderness camp you will have to bring everything with you in the canoes, including the tents.

Once you establish camp, with the help of your experienced guide, you are free to explore the lake we are on. There are several large rapids that were once used as log chutes that are quite interesting. Also, in this area it is quite common to see moose grazing by the edge of the lake – we have seen over a half dozen moose in a two day period here! 

Dinner will consist of fresh food, prepared on site, and enjoyed by the side of a blazing campfire! Afterwards, you can sit and watch the Milky Way rise slowly above your heads. The sky is so clear in Algonquin Park that you can even count satellites passing by. And if you’re really lucky you may even hear wolves howling in the distance. This is real Canadian camping!

Day 2 – Exploring Algonquin by Canoe

Today is a day of exploration. You can spend it exploring the lake you are on, by canoe, looking for moose, or perhaps do another portage and canoe up a meandering river. If you decide to try another lake one option is to do a short portage past an old dam used for logging, and then canoe the slow moving waters of the South Madawaska River. Since you will have to get out of our canoes to pull them over several beaver dams be sure to bring shoes or sandals for the water! Depending on where you establish your base camp, another option would be to canoe half way down the lake and then do a couple of portages, ending with a 1.7 km hike to Welcome Lake. This is one of the prettiest lakes in Algonquin Park, with a nice sandy beach. Perfect for picnic destination on a sunny day.

Day 3 – Canoeing Home

After an early morning breakfast you pack up camp, load the canoes, and start the paddle home. The early start is a great opportunity to see moose or deer (if you are lucky) coming to the lake shore to drink. You will be backtracking your route through two lakes and one portage, but everything looks different in the opposite direction!

Depending on weather and wave conditions you will stop at a cliff face where we will show you some ancient pictographs painted by the Natives centuries ago. 

You will get back to our starting point on Rock Lake at about 11 am. If you chose the optional transportation then you will be dropped off at Finch subway station in Toronto at about 4 pm.

This is a one day guided dog sledding trip around Huntsville, Ontario. A great adventure as well as a good introduction to dog sledding.
This is a true adventure and a great reason to look forward to winter! These dog sledding day trips are an excellent introduction to the exciting experience of dog sledding, and a ... moregreat way to decide if you’d be interested in a longer overnight expedition. The dog sledding day trips start just north of Huntsville, where you will meet up with an eager team of Huskies who will pull you though some of the finest forests in Ontario!

This dog sledding day trip is an excellent adventure for people who like “hands-on” activities. You have the opportunity to help with harnessing the huskies and hooking them up to the dogsleds. Each dogsled team consists of six huskies and two adventurers. One sits in the dogsled basket while the other person stands and steers. You will switch positions every so often and also stop for photos or to give your hard working dogs a rest. At the start of your dog sledding trip your guide will give you some instructions on how to handle the huskies, how to work the brakes on the dogsled, and what commands to give the dogs. He will then take off down the trail, and you will follow with your own dogsled team. Your dogsled team will race silently down forest trails, along burbling creeks and frozen lakes. The only sounds you hear are the wind in your hair, the soft padding of the huskies’ feet, and your dogsled runners gliding over the crisp snow.

On the full day dog sled trips you will travel the same route as the half day trip, but will continue on farther into the forest. At lunch you will stop at a scenic spot, and enjoy a hot drink and a sandwich as your dogs rest in the snow. Depending on snow conditions your route may be a loop, or a “there and back” adventure. At the end of the day, when you return to your starting point at the kennel, guests will have the chance to unharness their team and say their good byes before heading back home. This is definitely an experience you won’t want to miss!

One of the "Best Winter Packages in Canada" - Canadian Tourism Commission This exciting "mini-vacation" is a great way to discover the forests of Algonquin Park area. It is also an ... moreexhilarating introduction to several winter sports - all at an affordable price! Dog sledding, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. Winter season
Day 1 We arrive at the Eco-Lodge, on the southern border of Algonquin Park, by early afternoon. It is here that we meet up with our dog sled teams. Following an introduction to the ... moredogs and instruction on how to handle the sleds we set off for a 2 hour dog sled ride. This is always an exciting experience - the dogs barking and pulling at the dogsleds, the trees whipping past us, and the breeze in our faces. We dogsled into the majestic forests surrounding Algonquin Park along private trails. There is also a good chance that we may see some wildlife like moose or even a lone wolf!

Day 2
Our second day's activity is Cross Country Skiing. We strap on our cross country skis and follow the groomed ski trails through Algonquin Park. Our trail will lead us through hardwood bush - an excellent place to see moose or their tracks in the snow at the very least. We will stop for a trail lunch in a quaint prospectors' tent for a chance to rest and warm up by a roaring fire.

Day 3
We trade in our skis for Snowshoes on our third day. Again we voyage into the forests of Algonquin Park, but today we make our own trails! As we snowshoe our way through the crisp and untouched snow we should keep an eye out for the ever present signs of wildlife. This is how much of Canada was travelled - you can almost imagine yourself as a seasoned explorer!

We stay in the cozy comforts of the remote wilderness Algonquin Eco-Lodge. It's right out in the bush, but it comes complete with an outdoor hot tub and wood-fired sauna! Perfect for relaxing after a hard day of having fun in the snow! It is run with alternative energy created from our own waterfall, so you don't need to worry about sleeping in a tent and being cold at night. Unless you'd like to try your hand at building a "Quinzee" (a traditional snow hut) and sleep there for the night. Knowing that there is a warm room nearby always makes this idea more appealing!

For those requesting transportation, we begin our trip at Finch Subway station on Friday morning and start our journey up north. We will travel through scenic farm land and picturesque "cottage country". When combined with the bright winter sun and a blanket of crisp white snow, the views can be breathtaking.

Trip includes:

½ day of Dog Sledding

1 day of Cross Country Skiing

½ day of Snowshoeing

Carbon-neutral Hot Tub & Wood-fired outdoor Sauna

Polar Bear Dip (if you're brave enough!)

People with a sense of adventure will love this Algonquin Park canoe trip! It is geared towards beginners who want to sample more than 3 days of Ontario wilderness. By running the ... morecanoe trips midweek we will also avoid much of the crowds found on busier weekend routes. We provide all food, permits, a knowledgeable guide, and all equipment (except personal items like sleeping bags & flashlights – a packing checklist is provided). To make it even easier for tourists there is an optional Toronto to Algonquin Park shuttle service.
Day 1 – Meet in Algonquin Park We will meet you at Rock Lake in Algonquin Park at 1pm. For those who chose the shuttle service we will pick you up at Finch Subway in Toronto at 8:30am. ... moreOnce we arrive in Algonquin Park we have get our permits and then start unloading equipment and packing the canoes. Our experienced guide will teach you the basic canoeing strokes, show you how to properly load and secure a canoe, and go over safety issues like what to do if you tip, or what to do if you see a bear. We will also show you the Algonquin Park map and give you a brief history of the Park as well as where you will be canoeing for the next four days.

After the canoeing lesson you start paddling downstream on a lazy river. Soon the river opens up into Rock Lake, which you will be canoeing across. Rock Lake is a gorgeous lake that received it’s name from the several sheer rock faces that surround it. On a few of these cliff walls there are some Native pictographs that still remain after hundreds of years. On your last day you will stop by one set we have discovered (weather permitting).

At the end of Rock Lake there is a short portage to get around a weir. During a portage you empty the canoes, carry the gear to the other end of the trail, and then return to carry the canoes on your head. Don’t worry – it’s not as hard as it sounds, though you will be thankful that we use lightweight kevlar canoes!

Now you are on Galeairy Lake, where you will set up a campsite. Thisincludes hauling the canoes up onto land, putting up the tents, collecting firewood, and starting a campfire. Of course there is still enough time to go for a swim, or relax in the warm afternoon sun.

Dinner will consist of fresh food made at camp. We typically have chicken fajitas on our first night, with banana boats for dessert. Fine dining wilderness style!

Day 2 – Canoeing in Algonquin to a New Camp

Today is a travel day. You will pack up your campsite, load your canoes, and start paddling toward Pen Lake. Depending on the group make up and the time of year there are two route options that you will consider. One route has you backtracking slightly and doing lots of canoeing with two short portages. The other route option is less canoeing but one long portage and a very short one. Some people like the long portage because it gives you a chance to hike in the forest, but most people choose the canoeing route.

Day 3 – Moose Hunting by Canoe

Today is a relaxation day. You are not moving camp so you have more free time. Usually the group will have a lazy breakfast around the campfire and then head off in empty canoes searching for moose. At the beginning of summer moose mostly graze on aquatic plants, so you have an excellent chance of spotting them from your canoes as you paddle along the shoreline.

For a destination for lunch you may do a couple of portages and go to Welcome Lake and the big sandy beach there. Or you may canoe to the end of Pen Lake and do the short portage into Clydegale Lake. There are a couple of good moose viewing areas here.

You get back to camp mid-afternoon and have time to relax, swim, or practice your canoeing strokes.

Day 4 – Canoeing out of Algonquin Park

After an early morning breakfast we pack up camp and start canoeing for home. An early start gives us the chance to spot moose or deer as they come to the lake to drink at daybreak.

On the way back we will stop at a cliff face to look at a pictograph. These were painted by Natives many of hundred years ago, but many have faded due to exposure to the elements or rising water levels. We have managed to find one that is still easy to see.

We usually get back to the parking lot around 11am. After storing the canoes and gear away we leave for Toronto, getting to Finch Subway around 4pm.

This exciting canoe trip will give you five days of Wilderness Canoe Camping in the heart of the world famous Algonquin Park. This huge wilderness Park is the oldest, and one of the ... morelargest in Ontario. The park was established in 1893 and comprises an astonishing 7,725 square kilometres of forests, lakes, and rivers. It is 1.5 times larger than Prince Edward Island, ¼ the size of Hawaii, the same size as Wales, three times larger than Luxembourg, and seven times larger than Hong Kong! Within its borders can be found moose, deer, beaver, hawks, eagles, bears, and even wolves! For five days we will be living much like the Natives and early explorers did.
Travelling by two person canoe, we paddle across many lakes, portage over forest trails, swim in clear clean waters, cook by a fire, and sleep in tents under the stars. We will cover ... moreabout 10-20 km per day of wilderness canoe routes, with one day out for hiking or relaxing by the water. We can almost guarantee that we will come across a moose or two grazing by the waters edge. If we’re lucky we may even hear wolves howling in the distance at night! We provide all food, permits, a knowledgeable guide, and all equipment (except personal items like sleeping bags and flashlights – a packing check list is provided). We can even provide transportation from Toronto as an option.

Day 1 – Packing Canoes in Algonquin Park

Pickup at Finch Subway Station in Toronto (optional) or meet us in Algonquin Park. After a leisurely drive through the heart of Ontario farm land and cottage country we will meet our group at Permit Office at Rock Lake. After taking care of the necessary paper work our guide will instruct everyone on the necessary skills and techniques for canoeing. You will learn how to properly load a canoe, how to paddle in a straight line, and how to portage your canoes. You start your canoe trip down a slow moving river that spills out into Rock Lake. You will spend the next 1 1/2 hours paddling across Rock Lake to get to the short portage into Pen Lake. This lake is where you will find your first campsite in Algonquin Park. Once you establish camp, with the help of our experienced guide, you are free to explore the lake you are on. Also, in this area it is quite common to see moose grazing by the edge of the lake. Dinner will consist of fresh food, prepared on site, and enjoyed by the side of a blazing campfire! Afterwards, you can sit and watch the Milky Way rise slowly above your heads. The sky is so clear that you can even count satellites passing by! And, if you’re really lucky, a pack of wolves may serenade you with their howls! This is real Canadian camping!

Day 2 – Portaging into the depths of Algonquin Park

Today we will canoe even farther into the interior of Algonquin Park, exploring two more lakes. We will encounter some short portages and one long portage that takes you to a nice beach on Welcome Lake. And, after a welcome break and a swim, you continue canoeing across the lake and into a twisting river that leads into Harry Lake. This is where you will find your campsite for your second night in Algonquin Park.

Day 3 – Canoeing the Heart of Algonquin Park

Today you don’t canoe too many kilometres, but it is a fairly tiring day due to the portages. You will canoe across three small lakes and do two big portages. But you end up at one of the most beautiful lakes in Algonquin Park, Lake Louisa. It is a big lake with many small islands, some of which have campsites you can stay at. You should get to your campsite by mid-afternoon so you will have plenty of time to relax or do a bit more canoeing.

Day 4 – Base Camp in Algonquin Park

As you have already canoed a fair bit of distance, you will take the day off from paddling and remain at the same campsite for one more night. By now everyone is an expert at setting up their tents and collecting firewood, so there will be ample time to relax, swim, read a book, explore the shores of Lake Louisa, or try your hand at fishing for your dinner! 

Day 5 – The Never Ending Algonquin Portage

Your final day begins with a hearty breakfast. You pack up camp, load the canoes and start the paddle home. This is a challenging day, but since you are well rested from yesterday, you should easily be able to manage the 2.9 kilometre portage that awaits you. You will arrive at Rock Lake by early afternoon and have a short canoe trip back to the parking lot, arriving back to your vehicles about 2 pm. You then start the drive back to Toronto. For those who requested transportation to/from Toronto, you will be dropped off at Finch subway station at about 7 pm. After this five day canoe adventure, you can definitely say that you have answered the Call Of The Wild!

The Gulf Islands Explorer is one incredible paddling experience! Your guide will lead you to some of most beautiful camping and paddling destinations in the Southern Gulf Islands. ... moreStunning white shell beaches, amazing sandstone formations, abundant wildlife and a Mediterranean-like climate make the Southern Gulf Islands a world-class kayaking destination.
Destinations may include: (The route options offered are not guaranteed. Our route is determined by wind, weather and other factors our guides take into consideration. There are many ... moregems to explore and every route has amazing things to offer.)

Wallace Island Provincial Park
We will launch from Hudson’s Point on Salt Spring and paddle the 30-minute crossing over to Wallace Island. We will head straight to Chivers Point and set up camp. After, we head back out to explore Wallace Island and the Secretaries. Wallace Island, located in beautiful Trincomali Channel between the northern ends of Saltspring Island and Galiano Island, offers numerous beaches, coves and offshore islets to explore. Bald eagles, black-tailed deer and mink are common in the park, as well as harbour seals, sea lions and river otters.

Dionisio Point Provincial Park
In the morning, we will learn to predict the day’s tides and currents over Salt Spring Organic Coffee and come up with a plan for the day. Our timing for the day must be just right as we head to Polier Pass, an area of fast tidal currents that result in fast moving whirlpools and standing waves. We need to be there at slack tide for safety’s sake.

Dionisio Point offers incredible scenery including headlands flanked by sandy beaches, picturesque bays and a unique shoreline that includes sculpted sandstone shelves, pebble and sand beaches and colorful wildflower meadows. Fast flowing tidal currents of Polier Pass have created a rich intertidal life - sea-stars, nudibranchs and chitons can be seen in the tide pools, and at times large quantities of swimming scallop shells can be found on the beaches. Sea Lions are often spotted in swimming and playing in the churning waters.

Blackberry Point on Valdes Island
We will head back through Polier Pass to Blackberry Point. While sipping your Pinot Gris on the white shell beach of Blackberry Point, you’d swear you were in the Mederterainian. This is one of the Gulf Islands most beautiful campsites with an extensive sand beach, an attractive meadow for camping and extensive eroded sandstone formations to explore nearby.

‘The Cut’ between Thetis and Kuper Islands
You won’t believe there is actually a water passage between these two beautiful islands until you see it for yourself. We will stop in the picturesque Telegraph Harbour for a bite at the Thetis Island Marina Pub, then paddle south along the First Nations Reserve that is Kuper Island, past incredible sandstone formations filled with cormorant nests, and back to Southy Point on to Salt Spring.

On this trip you have two options:

1) A fully catered tour complete with the best organic ingredients and wines BC has to offer. A typical first night’s meal on the Gulf Islands Explorer Tour includes:
Seared Wild Salmon with Mustard-Caper Butter
Organic Slow Roasted Garlic with Salt Spring Goat Cheese on a fresh Baguette
Fresh Salt Spring Greens with Spicy Strawberry Vinaigrette
Wines: Sandhill (VQA) 2005 Pinot Gris, Merlot or Cab Franc
Dessert: BC Cherries and Chocolate Fondue

2) A self-catered tour where you plan and create your meals. Self-cater tours cost about 20% less and are a great option for budget-minded paddlers who want the professional leadership and local knowledge of a Salt Spring Adventure Co. guide but would like to save a few bucks making meals for themselves.
