PLAN YOUR NEXT UNFORGETTABLE ADVENTURE IN
ALGONQUIN PROVINCIAL PARK, ONTARIO
Algonquin Park is a world famous wilderness park just north of Toronto, Ontario. It is known as one of the best provincial parks in Canada to go for a canoe camping trip. With thousands of kilometres of canoe routes and hundreds of campsites, the best way to explore Algonquin Park is on a wilderness canoe trip.
Algonquin National Park is 7,653 km² in area. This is equivalent to 1/4 the size of Hawaii or Belgium. Within its’ borders there are roughly 3,000 moose, 2,000 black bears, and 40 packs of wolves. There are also thousands of beaver, deer, otters, fishers, and many other small animals. And one of the best ways to spot them is on a canoe trip. From a canoe you can paddle quite close to grazing moose, in their natural environment, and get some great photos.

SNOWMOBILE TOURS IN ONTARIO
Snowmobiling is a huge sport in the winter. Ontario has more groomed snowmobile trails than paved highways! More than 25,000 km of smooth trails through spectacular scenery. Travelling by snowmobile you can see remote areas of the province, cross frozen lakes, and spot wildlife along the way. We have a couple of snowmobile trips in Ontario to choose from.
3 Day Haliburton Highlands & Algonquin Park Snowmobile Safari – a nice loop snowmobile trip for beginners. We stay at some gorgeous lodges and resorts along the way. This is an award winning trip, as selected by the Canadian Tourism Commission!

Call Of The Wild has been guiding canoe trips in Algonquin Park since 1993. We started out offering 3 day canoe trips on weekends only, but soon expanded to also offer 4 and 5 day outings. We caught a lucky break in our early years and were featured on the front page of the Globe & Mail. After that we were quite busy, and started running winter adventures as well.
By partnering with management consultants we soon started organizing team building retreats. For some very high impact sessions we have even flown in instructors from the RAF in Britain.
In 2001 Call Of The Wild purchased the Algonquin Wilderness Nordic Lodge. Set in an idyllic wilderness location, on the shore of a private lake and a cascading waterfall this off-grid lodge was a perfect base for our winter adventures and some of our summer canoe trips. However, we had bigger plans for it. After much hard work, renovations, and investment we transformed it into the award winning Algonquin Eco-Lodge. It is now powered by a micro-hydro turbine that provides 100% of our electrical needs. We even have enough electricity for an outdoor carbon neutral hot tub!
Ready for the adventure of a lifetime?
Just wanted to give my whole hearted thanks for being such a great guide this weekend. It is often really hard for me with dietary restrictions to really enjoy myself……I’m not really that fun when I’m hungry! But you guys were amazing. I was in BC when Eva asked me if I would go with her and I didn’t have a computer so I wasn’t really sure what I had signed up for but I’m glad I did it. My only regret is that I’m already home in Toronto. I hope to be able to do another one of your company’s adventures soon and hopefully you can teach me a few more constellations.

I just came back from the 3 day trip at Algonquin Park. I wanted to let you know how wonderful the trip was, mainly because of our guide Trevor. He did a fantastic job and was knowledgeable, patient and flexible which made the trip so enjoyable.
We enjoyed the trip so much that we are considering booking a second 3 day trip in the fall.
