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.
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.
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!
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.”
