Why go on a guided trip? Whether it lasts a few days or a week, a guided canoe trip is ideal for families or groups of friends seeking the extra level of comfort that comes with having an experienced, personable and knowledgeable guide accompanying them. A guided trip allows the first-timer to comfortably experience what can be an intimidating and easily underestimated wilderness environment. People with previous canoe-camping or wilderness travel experience find that having a guide along helps them build new skills and confidently undertake a more challenging route than they may have on their own. Families discover that having a guide to take care of the “nitty-gritty” details of the trip allows them more time to enjoy special wilderness experiences in Algonquin Park together.
Enhance your Algonquin Park experience by booking one of our outfitting packages with a skilled and knowledgeable canoe trip guide. Algonquin Outfitters offers options for both guided day trips and overnight camping experiences in the park's interior. For multi-day canoe camping trips, you can choose the guide service level that best suits your needs and budget: our exclusive "Custom Guided Trip" with our Ultimate Outfitting food and equipment package, the innovative “Guide for a Day” option or the shorter "Greenhorn Service."

Need a little help getting started? Add Greenhorn Service to any of our complete outfitting packages to start your trip off with a short course in the basics of camping and paddling. One of our experienced guides will go over all the gear and lead you on a “mini-trip” to cover skills like camp setup, food storage, portaging and paddling. This is a cost-effective way to start your Algonquin Park adventure off on the right foot!
Guide for a day
If you are not sure that you need a guide for the whole trip but could use some help at the beginning, this innovative program could be just the ticket. Available as an option with our Ultimate Outfitting package only, this innovative program goes beyond our standard “Greenhorn Service."
