Explore the luscious wilderness of Ontario and experience the ‘great outdoors’ in a very real sense on a Canada holiday to Algonquin Provincial Park. Spanning some 7,650 square-kilometres, this vast swathe of land is largely untouched by human development and much of it is best explored on foot, horseback or even from the water by canoe.
Active holiday-makers will find no end of options for outdoor adventure. In winter you can go snowshoeing through the frosty terrain, while hiking the scenic tracks in summer reaps the reward of some sensational views across the park. Wildlife-lovers are also in luck, with an abundance of species to spot, from moose and deer to howling wolves and black bears. Plus, with over 250 species of birds in the park, twitchers will be in heaven. When night falls, be sure to step outside and see the stars. You might even get a chance to view the northern lights.
We recommend a stay in an authentic log cabin right on the water’s edge in Algonquin Park. At Killarney Lodge they even go as far as providing each cabin with its own canoe so you can step right from your door and onto the Lake of Two Rivers each morning. Paradise!
