Overview of Algonquin Park 6‑Day Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Canoe Trip

Connect with Nature and savor the peace and quiet of the Algonquin Park Summer while paddling the Amable Du Fond River.

The Amable Du Fond River is starting out of Pipe Lake and empties into the Mattawa River. It is an easy to paddle water with incredible views along the way. Wildlife like Moose, Bear, Wolf, Coyote, Eagles and more call Algonquin Park their home and you might even spot some Beavers in the water.

Our adventure will start right at Chocpaw Expeditions in South River where you will meet your guide to get acquainted and get all ready and set up for your upcoming paddling trip. Once prepared we will drive to Kawawaymog Lake, get all our gear in the canoes and hit the water.

On the lake we will practice some basic canoeing skills or just get back into things before we start paddling across to the West arm of North Tea Lake.

We will spend 5 nights in total in Algonquin Park along the Amable Du Fond River route where we will set up our camp and enjoy tasty shore meals around the fire, and of course there will be one of our sled dogs joining us on this trip.

On day 6 we will be back at Kawawaymog Lake where you will load up our gear and head back to Chocpaw Expeditions.

This adventure is perfect for Families with children. There is no experience required to participate in this trip.

Small groups of max 8 guest/ 4 canoes.
