Custom Guided Canoe Trip

A specialty of Algonquin Outfitters since 1961.

Considering an Ultimate canoe trip with a guide? Whether it’s for just a few days or several, a Custom Guided Canoe Trip is an excellent choice for families or groups of friends who want the higher degree of comfort that comes with having a knowledgeable, personable and experienced guide along on their wilderness adventure. A guided trip allows beginners to relax and safely enjoy what can be an intimidating wilderness environment. People with previous canoeing or camping experience find that having a guide along encourages them to take on a more challenging route and, during the trip, provides hands-on opportunities to enhance their canoe-camping skills. Families find that having a guide with them to take care of the basic daily details of canoe-camping gives them more time to enjoy and share special wilderness experiences in Algonquin Park.
