Join us for an Algonquin Park Canoe trip. View pictures from an actual trip and follow the route on the accompanying map. This is as close as one can get to an Algonquin Canoe trip without actually picking up a paddle and hopping into a canoe.
The travellers you are joining consisted of Liana, her husband Vince, her father Sven, longtime friends Michelle and married couple Jenn and Richard. The trip took place in early July of 2011 and spanned 4-days and three nights.
The route they paddled is commonly called the “Big Trout Loop”. It started at the Portage Store on Canoe Lake, went to Burnt Island Lake, up to Big Trout Lake, over to McIntosh Lake and then back to the Portage Store through Tom Thomson Lake. It is one of the routes described in our sample canoe trip page, only done in reverse order. Generally they started paddling between 9 and 10 am each morning and reached their evening campsite between 5 and 6 pm. They carried everything through the portages in one trip, eliminating the time required to go back for a second load.
Day 1 = Green; Day 2 = Red; Day 3 = Blue; Day 4 = Yellow
