Winter is officially here to stay, much to the delight of snow-loving outdoor enthusiasts who prefer tramping through the backcountry on snowshoes rather than baking on a crowded beach. Planning a safe, memorable family reunion in Ontario during these challenging times is no walk in the park. Thankfully, a secluded, spacious haven exists along the scenic southern rim of Algonquin Provincial Park: the Algonquin Eco-Lodge, a wholly sustainable, micro-hydro outpost set amid dense woodlands. And there’s no better time for a small-scale family reunion than during winter’s hearth.
Every winter, snowmobilers, snowshoers, and Nordic skiers alike trek northerly to the Eco-Lodge for some much-needed time spent amid nature. The air is incredibly clean, the roads are empty, and the woodlands are ruled by the local fauna. To enhance your upcoming escape from Toronto en route to Algonquin Park, we’ve compiled an Eco-Lodge-style winter bucket list.
As autumn fades and winter approaches, countless couples from the Greater Toronto Area begin to brainstorm creative ways to seek romance during the frostiest season of the year. Luckily, Algonquin Eco-Lodge, the ultimate wintertime couples resort in Algonquin Park, is a mere two-hour drive from Toronto’s northerly neighbourhoods. Algonquin Eco-Lodge provides a playful, passionate, and uninhibited alternative to your prototypical resort-like experience, thanks to its remote locale, intimate adventures, and European mountain lodge charm.
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.
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.
Every winter, hundreds of families and couples escape to our peaceful, eco-friendly slice of Central Ontario for a week of snowshoeing, dog sledding, and snowmobiling. However, most guests are drawn to our Alongquin Park cross-country skiing packages. We’re the only Algonquin lodge to feature over 40 kilometres of groomed Nordic ski trails, which is just one of our many on-site perks!
