Another way to explore Algonquin is on foot. Pack your tent, sleeping bag, gear and food into a backpack and take to Algonquin Park’s extensive network of backpacking trails. Although Algonquin Outfitters is renowned for custom canoe trips into Algonquin Park, we can certainly help those who choose to explore the park with their hiking boots on.
