As spring draws closer, we’re still thinking about all the fun winter adventures that this year’s guests shared at Algonquin Eco-Lodge. However, those who prefer to take a minimalist approach to life may find themselves making the most of winter differently.
While autumn still hasn’t reached its resonant peak here at Algonquin Eco-Lodge, many of us are already thinking about winter’s frosty arrival. Admittedly, we’re daydreaming about soaking in the outdoor hot tub underneath the falling snow, snowmobiling through the powdery backcountry, and embracing the holiday cheer. Winter inside Algonquin Park, especially along its southern rim, is equally crisp, picturesque, and wholly isolated.
Safe, socially-distanced family travel is our number one priority. Thankfully, the team has done a stellar job continuously follow Canada’s cleaning guidelines, prevention methods, and travel advice. Much like the rest of this great country, we’ve adopted. And we’re happy to report that the Eco-Lodge has never been more enticing!
Yes, there are countless well-marked Algonquin Park hikes along the Highway 60 Corridor. However, the southern rim of the park provides true quietude near sustainable, award-winning Algonquin Eco-Lodge. The team at the Eco-Lodge, as well as Call of the Wild, offers guided excursions into the undisturbed heart of the park.
It’s worth remembering that this glorious continent is brimming with possibility, including right here in south-central Ontario’s own backyard. With so many potential Algonquin adventures obtainable at an arm’s length here in the tranquil, densely-forested backcountry, you’ll instantly welcome long-forgotten feelings of rejuvenation, invigoration, and true serenity upon arrival.
As we surge ahead to the summer of 2020, more and more people are searching for alternative methods of outdoor recreation and exploration. One of the fastest-growing recreational activities here in Ontario is the art of geocaching. So, what is geocaching, exactly? In layman’s terms, geocaching is a family-friendly treasure hunt set in the 21st century.
Algonquin Eco-Lodge, a peaceful, eco-friendly haven along the southern edge of the dense Algonquin Park, is merely a 105-minute drive from the Greater Toronto Area. Thus, our genuinely off-the-grid wilderness lodge is a popular destination for a multi-day school field trip near Toronto. Regardless of the season, we can accommodate groups of all ages and sizes, thanks to our ample camp-style acreage and cozy Algonquin Park cabins.
You’d be surprised to learn how many people practice “winter camping” in Ontario’s glorious, frozen tundra. A winter camper must be strong-willed, unusually adventurous, and a tad bit wild. This type of individual would fit right in here at Algonquin Eco-Lodge, a secluded, environmentally-conscious resort hidden in the heart of Ontario’s backcountry. During the winter months, travellers from all walks of life visit our serene respite for a healthy dose of adventure, exploration, and reflection, deep in the midst of Algonquin Park’s loving embrace.
We gleefully embrace the cold, snow, and seclusion—there’s nothing more invigorating than a full day atop a blazing snowmobile amid dense forestry, rolling hills, and curious wildlife. And, luckily for you and your group, Algonquin Eco-Lodge offers three and five-day snowmobile tours in Ontario through our partner Call of the Wild, the “adventure consultants.”
