Algonquin Park: Adventure Tour from Toronto

1. Algonquin Park: Adventure Tour from Toronto

Take a break from the bustle of Toronto and head into nature for a day. Visit Canada's oldest provincial park on a guided excursion. Get picked up from the meeting point and drive to Algonquin. Spend an enriching 6 hours at the park snowshoeing, hiking, spotting wildlife, canoeing, and swimming. Hop aboard the van in Toronto and head toward the park on a relaxing drive. If there's enough snow, put on your snowshoes for a combined snowshoeing and hiking experience. The activity begins with a short waterfall hike with views sure to take your breath away. Walk up to this hidden gem and marvel at the water gushing over craggy surfaces and glistening in the sun. Continue onto Booth's Rock Trail Hike toward an amazing lookout over Rock Lake and the Algonquin Park woods. This trail takes about 3 hours but is paced for beginners. You don't need to have any hiking experience. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife as you follow the trails — you may just see moose, black bears, beavers, wild turkeys, and turtles. Pass by sparkling lakes and stop at lookouts along the way. Opt to take a swim around Popcorn Island, witnessing the natural beauty from yet another vantage point. Hop in a canoe and your guide will lead you around on Canoe Lake. End the day having fully experienced the wonderful Algonquin Provincial Park. Get dropped off at the meeting point in Toronto.

I went looking for an adventure to the great outdoors and boy did I find it, Algonquin is a beautiful place and is a must if your visiting Toronto. Brian, our tour guide, epitomized friendliness and expertise, enriching the journey and making every penny worthwhile. The pinnacle of the expedition was witnessing a majestic black bear dash across the road 🐻. Ideal for solo travelers, the tour facilitates new friendships amid numerous photo-worthy moments. Brian's eagerness to capture memories added an extra layer of delight. The grand finale involved savoring a mesmerizing sunset, concluding an unforgettable experience.

This was a fantastic day tour to Algonquin Park. The three hikes throughout the day were great. Very scenic and interesting. It helped that it snowed a little to add to our adventure. Not too arduous but with a challenge. Our guide Mike was terrific. He was enthusiastic, very helpful and knowledgeable. A great way to see a small part of a wonderful park for people with limited time and access to transport. I would highly recommend this day tour.

Bryan was amazing! Being from LA, I definitely loved the views and nature in Algonquin Park. Totally worth it if you’re trying to see life outside the city, Toronto.
