Algonquin Park: a Top 10 Cross Country Skiing destination

Published By on December 14th, 2013 in Edge Insider

Algonquin Park was voted by Canadian Geographic Travel as one of Canada’s 10 best cross-country skiing getaways. At Northern Edge Algonquin, in the northwest corner of Algonquin Park a trail network spreads through the forest of Algonquin Park and the Forgotten Trails.

Difficulty levels range from beginner to advanced and CANSI ski instructors Kim and Jeff Lunn will help you explore at a level you are comfortable with. Even better, stay for a Dog Sledding and Winter Log Cabin getaway. It’s worth it for the spectacular views and the sense of quiet and remote adventure.

There is always a chance for a wildlife encounter too! Because our guided cross country skiing experiences take place in the unfrequently travelled forest. Wildlife encounters are no surprise.
