Northern Edge Algonquin

Inspiring transformational leadership, deep connection, and extraordinary living . . .

Northern Edge Algonquin, located 3 hours from Toronto at a quiet corner of Algonquin Park, co-creates and hosts all-inclusive transformational retreats for groups of 8 to 30.  We invite you to unplug in nature for our custom-tailored, multi-day experiences that reconnect and inspire the leader within, nourishing deep connections in our communities. Our 20+ years of co-creating and facilitating transformative group experiences have made ‘The Edge’ the perfect retreat venue for all types of groups.

Our guests sleep comfortably in private or semi-private cozy ecoluxe cabins designed in harmony with our forest home, enjoy nourishing meals crafted with care from locally-sourced ingredients, and participate in specially curated experiences hosted by local guides, facilitators, and storytellers which make use of our lakeside studio and natural gathering spaces.

Groups and individuals engage in a variety of experiences led by special guests, guided nature excursions (exploring by stand-up paddleboard, canoe, cross-country ski, snowshoe, bike, or hike); yoga classes, sound meditations, art, and more.  We might align with the pace of nature and rise with the sun to paddle a misty river in search of moose and other wildlife, or unwind in our wood-fired sauna before jumping in the lake or rolling in the snow.  At night, share stories and music in the warmth of a fire circle under a festival of stars.

Guests leave the Edge feeling renewed and transformed, ready to live their extraordinary life.

  • "Gregor (The Chef/The Carpenter) is amazing. Like will you marry me, get in my trunk, I'll never eat another meal again kind of amazing. The food he makes is creative and what real farm to table was meant to be. He describes every dish with the care of someone who knows when and where each item was picked. Waiting for that dinner bell was a pavlov's dog experience each time."

  • "I feel so grateful to write a second review for this unique and authentic facility, its programs, its values and its spiritual grounding. Once again, the physical setting was so ideal for this [Heart Blossom] retreat. We drummed, danced, dined like kings and played in the water to reconnect with our inner selves and our collective power to support and care for one another. All the superlative adjectives in the world would barely scratch the surface of how special this place is in so many ways. Make time for it, if it calls to you. You won't be disappointed."

  • "The setting is an idyllic, pristine forest/lake environment with log cabins, tented cabins and common buildings that co-exist and thrive with nature. Discovering the little nooks and cozy crannies on the property that Todd and Martha have created made us at first feel like we'd been dropped off at Camp, and were free to explore as we all had done once as kids. The food was the biggest surprise: every meal was a healthy gourmet treat . . ."
