We know that some of you love contests almost as much as you love Algonquin Park! That’s why the Algonquin Outfitters team loves to host contests every year. Typically, we run an annual photography contest, so be sure to pack your camera every time you visit Algonquin Park or set out on a new adventure. We also run other contests online and in our stores, periodically. To learn about these, you’l want to check in often or follow our social media channels for details on the latest contest or promotion.

Every spring, you can join us as we countdown the days until Algonquin Park’s Lake Opeongo is finally free of ice. We love hosting this annual “ice-out” contest, which boosts excitement for the first days of paddling in Algonquin Park. You can find our Ice Out Reports online to help you pick a date that will give you the best chance of winning a prize. Be sure to enter early, though, since there’s a limited number of prizes and most are awarded to the first people who picked the correct date. The grand prize is awarded randomly to one lucky winner who managed to name the correct date for ice-out on Lake Opeongo.

If you’re on Twitter, join us and @Some_eventful (Gayle Labuz) every Tuesday at 7:30-8:30 pm for the weekly #WeGetOutside Twitter Chat Series. Every other week, we give away a $25 AO Gift Card and a variety of prizes. For more contest announcements, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

General contest rules can be found here but you should read the specific rules for each contest, in order to have the best chance of winning.
