Combine an Algonquin Park canoe trip with a few days at the Algonquin Log Cabin for the perfect 5-day adventure! The canoe trip allows you to get into the interior of Algonquin. The campsites are spectacular and offer good opportunities to see and hear wildlife. If you are lucky, you might catch sight of a large moose or hear a pack of wolves howl under the full moon!
