2019 Trip Rates

A multi-day canoe trip is really the best way to “get into Algonquin” and explore this vast area. There are nearly 8,000 square kilometres of wilderness, over than 2,000 kilometres of canoe routes and hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails in Algonquin Park, which means it can’t possibly be fully experienced in one day or on one trip! It takes many days and many trips to really get to know “The Park.” Some people might say it takes a lifetime.

On an overnight canoe trip, as opposed to a day-long excursion, you can visit more lakes, experience a wider variety of wilderness environments and see more wildlife, in addition to cooking some well-deserved meals and sleeping out in the woods. Camping out for at least one night enhances an Algonquin Park adventure by providing extra time to experience more of what the park really has to offer.

If you don’t feel ready to tackle such a trip on your own, consider taking one of our custom guided trips. On an Algonquin Outfitters guided trip, the goal is to educate participants about wilderness canoe-camping and enhance their tripping skills. We hope that the experience creates a desire to return and go on another canoe trip – maybe even without a guide!

PLEASE NOTE:  Prices listed are per person/per trip, with a minimum of two in a party (except for solo trips). Guided trips have a daily guide rate that is shared by the entire group. Transportation and Algonquin Park passes are extra. All prices are in Canadian dollars.

Custom Guided Canoe Trip

A specialty of Algonquin Outfitters since 1961.

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 comfort that comes with having an experienced, personable and knowledgeable guide accompany 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 possibly undertake a more challenging route than they would on their own. Families discover that having a guide there to take care of the “nitty-gritty” details of the trip allows them more time to enjoy and share the special wilderness experiences found in Algonquin Park.

All of our Custom Guided Canoe Trips are based on our Deluxe Canoe Trip Outfitting packages. A guided trip includes one of our experienced Algonquin Park guides and all of the gear and food for him or her, as well as a complete Deluxe Canoe Trip Outfitting package for every member of your group.

Rates are based on a minimum of two to a maximum of eight members. The charge for the services of a guide is extra ($250 per day), and is shared by all members of the party. The guiding fee includes the services of the guide, his or her food and equipment.

Guide for a Day

Need a little help getting started?

An experienced canoe trip guide will travel with you on the first day of the canoe trip.

Available as an option with our Ultimate Outfitting package only, this innovative program goes beyond our standard Greenhorn Service.

One of our experienced guides will accompany your group for the first day of your trip, helping you pack and prepare, reviewing the route in detail, assisting with permits and other pre-departure details. Along the way, the guide will teach skills like loading canoes, portaging techniques, paddling strokes, basic navigation, campsite selection and organization. Once you are safely established on your first site with dinner cooking, the guide will depart, allowing you to finish the trip on your own, with increased confidence and new-found skills.

Our guides can show you simple techniques to make a canoe trip safer and more enjoyable.
