Adventure Overview

Algonquin Park is Canada’s favourite canoe adventure destination as well as its number one environmental research site. Just three hours north of Toronto, the Algonquin Park Three Day Canoe Trip offers great opportunities to see and photograph wildlife and learn about the natural world around you. A seasoned guide, delicious meals and beautiful campsites make this trip the ideal way to experience Algonquin Park for the first time. Experience the wonders of Algonquin Park on this fully guided adventure trip.

The following itinerary is intended to give you an idea of a 3‑day Algonquin Park canoe trip. The exact program is tailored “on trip” to the preferences of the group and weather conditions.

  • DAY 1
    9:30 a.m. rendezvous at Chocpaw’s head office in South River, Ontario situated at Algonquin Park’s northwest corner. After an orientation, brief lesson and lunch, we travel to the access point and canoe across Round Lake into Algonquin Park. Along the way we learn how to paddle, portage, navigate and enjoy an introduction to the park and its natural environment. We set up camp on a scenic point covered in pine trees and enjoy our first meal and campfire of the adventure.  At the end of the day we lie in our tents and nod off listening to the night forest folks and the gentle lapping of the water.

  • DAY 2
    Watch the sun rise over the lake as we paddle in search of moose and other wildlife. Take advantage of ideal photography opportunities as we enjoy a hot breakfast along the shore. Afterwards, we paddle east through a series of classic Algonquin Park water ways. A floating lunch gives us the energy to paddle into wetlands where we will have a great opportunity to see beaver, great blue heron and moose. Our final stop is at a beautiful lake where we have the afternoon to hike, swim, and fish. A hearty dinner cooked over the fire satisfies our appetites as we exchange stories, legends and myths of travelling through the Canadian wilderness along with learning about the stars and constellations hovering high above.
  • DAY 3
    The aroma of coffee and bacon frying gets you out of your sleeping bags and up for breakfast. After packing up camp, we head out for the series of portages through mixed maple forest learning about the unique mix of flora and fauna in the area. Options allow you to learn to solo a canoe and to navigate as we paddle back to the starting point, stopping along the way for a floating lunch. We return to South River around 2pm.
