Canada’s oldest park and still one of its most popular, Algonquin Park’s dense forests, maze of waterways, and extraordinary scenery draw crowds to enjoy all types of outdoor activities, just as it has since its founding in 1893. About 3,000 square miles and 2,400 lakes and rivers snake through the colorful maple-covered rolling hills and craggy cliffs, bringing visitors traveling by foot, canoe, ski, bike, horse, or even dog sled into close contact with ample wildlife including moose, beavers, and bears. In fact, many areas of the park are accessible only by hiking in or paddling a canoe to them.
The drive to the West Gate of the park from Toronto takes about three hours, and from Ottawa to the East Gate is about the same. Both cities have major airports — Toronto Pearson International Airport (YZZ) and Ottawa International Airport (YOW) — and receive flights from around Canada and the world by most major carriers. They also have ample rental car facilities, which is helpful since a car remains the best way to get to Algonquin, even though most people explore the park itself by foot or boat. There is a bus service connecting Toronto to the park, dropping visitors at major trailheads and departure points, as well as packaged tours that allow you to use the park without a private car.
Algonquin Park covers huge swaths of land with varied topography, which means it’s best to always keep an eye on the weather — it can change quickly, depending on where you are. Overall, though, summers are warm, with average high temperatures in the upper 70 degrees Fahrenheit, with the chance of rain peaking then — though precipitation occurs throughout the year. Winters get down to bone-chilling temperatures — the average low dips below zero in January and February — and bring more than a foot of snow each month. Given the extreme and dynamic weather and outdoor nature of visits to the park, packing many layers is essential to staying safe and comfortable.
With 1,200 miles of canoe routes through Algonquin Park, exploring the park’s waterways by boat offers the quintessential Algonquin experience. Paddling through the vast wilderness gives you the opportunity to see parts untouched by vehicle traffic and that can’t be reached by other methods. Outfitters within the park offer guided trips, group excursions, and rentals.
The late summer wolf howling expeditions bring visitors on a unique excursion. After a presentation about the elusive animal, park naturalists lead groups on an excursion to listen for wolf howls as they encourage the animals to respond to their imitations.
The park serves as home for more than 50 species of mammals, 140 of breeding birds, and 30 of reptiles and amphibians, making much of the fun of exploring the park spotting them. The moose famously gather near the highways, as they like the salt used on the roads, while you’ll sometimes have to work harder to spot black bears, white-tailed deer, red foxes, great grey owls, and that famous symbol of Canada, the beaver.
