Not far from metropolitan Toronto, you’ll find Ontario’s oldest and second largest National Park. The Park is covered in thick pine forests, jagged cliffs and crystal-clear lakes. It’s the perfect place for you to dive into the wild and bring out your inner explorer. Not only is the park home to many hiking trails, but you’ll also find plenty of wildlife – from bears to moose and different species of birds to wild wolves.

Explore Algonquin Park

Today you’ll wake up bright and early and tuck into a lush home-made Canadian lumberjack breakfast before heading to explore Algonquin Park. On arrival, you can stop off at the visitor centre. The centre displays the parks wildlife, history and geology. In the park, you are spoiled for choice, with over 20 well-signposted trails of varying lengths and difficulty levels. One moderate trail, known as the ‘Mizzy Lake’ is a beautiful path that leads through forests, lakes and gives you an excellent chance to see some diverse wildlife.

If you want to challenge yourself, you can take the ‘Booth’s Rock’ trial which follows an abandoned railway for breath-taking views of the sweeping lakes and forests. For those of you who want to explore the park the ‘Canadian way’, you should take the time for a tour by canoe or kayak. Your hosts at the bed and breakfast will gladly organise a guided 3-hour canoe tour, who will show you the most scenic lakes in the park. If you’d rather paddle around by yourself, there are places where you can rent a canoe and explore how you’d like.
