Algonquin Park tours in Canada, canoeing & moose
Memorable parts? Gentle paddling during the day enjoying incredibly vast skies, calm blue water and forests of white pines.

Learning how to track animals, brew pine needle tea, make rope out of bark, start a fire in the rain and read weather patterns. Tips? The camp sites are simply a natural clearing in the forest near the water, with some rocks for... (more)Jane Lucken
