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!

Call Of The Wild is listed in several guidebooks, including the Lonely Planet and the Rough Guide to Canada.  We have been featured in many newspaper articles and television programs around the world.  And we work with many international travel wholesale and retail companies.

Call Of The Wild carries full commercial liability insurance.
