Canada’s most famous provincial park is a bucket list travel destination for visitors from all over the world. Located just two and a half hours north of Toronto and just four hours from Ottawa, visitors to the park will find one of the most impressive landscapes in the nation, one that inspired members of Canada’s iconic Group of Seven painters. A nature lover’s paradise, in summer paddlers in Algonquin Park can select from more than 2,000 kilometres of canoe routes and nearly 2,000 camp sites.
Outdoor activities are available for every enthusiast, from hiking and biking to back country camping, from dog sled expeditions to Nordic and snowshoe treks. Cool off in the summer at one of hundreds of clean, clear, refreshing lakes. All campgrounds and day-use picnic areas have unsupervised beaches. And enjoy winter camping and skating at Mew Lake in winter.
Algonquin Park is also wildlife photographer’s dream, with opportunities for viewing moose and bird species particularly good, and the renowned fall colour display second to none in the world. The park also offers some of the finest brook trout and lake trout fishing in the world.
