Up North: Algonquin Explorer

It’s like a “Summer Camp for Adults,” but with comfortable, private accommodation & delicious food.  Try something new each day, exploring with all the senses.

Over three or four days, explore Algonquin Park in a variety of intimate and interactive learning experiences, ending each day under feather duvet listening to loons howl on the lake.


These experiences are designed for adults – young and old; Experiences at the Edge are bucket-list worthy experiences you’ll be telling stories about for years to come . . .

Settle into your cabin and get to know other guests on the afternoon of your arrival.  Hit the water with guided stand-up paddleboard and canoe excursions through Kawawaymog Lake and the Amable du Fond river.

Share a bike-and-hike to Moose Mountain or the Tower Trail, enjoy a dip in the lake, and as always, savour chef Gregor’s award winning food experiences. All outdoor equipment use is included.

Canadian Signature Experience

Rise early one morning & paddle the Amable du Fond River in the mist on a Morning Tea with Moose excursion to seek out moose, Algonquin’s most majestic mammal, while sipping Algonquin Tea.  Enjoy a variety of workshops & hands-on learning experiences.

Step out of the city for the weekend; experience the best of “Up North.”
