Canoe into natural Canada in Algonquin Provincial Park
Share This Article:
A trip to Canada is not complete without an adventure in the great outdoors. Escape from the crowded, over-priced and globalised big cities to experience the real side of this northern nation. While travelling, it can be easy to hop from city to city, ticking well-known metropolises off our bucket lists. In Canada, many people visit Toronto and Vancouver, perhaps dipping into a national park for a day or two - but there is so much more to see. Canada offers such a variety of activities that every traveller will find something to suit their tastes; from long, meandering forest trails to rewarding mountain hikes, from gentle canoeing to white water rafting. In order to access your chosen adventures, your journey will take you away from the cities and across the countryside. Drive through small red-brick villages peppered throughout the land, pass vast fields of crops and animals, pine forests, and tranquil lakes. These hidden wonders lie off the tourist trail, giving you a true taste of Canadian life. I canoed in Ontario’s beautiful Algonquin Provincial Park in October, as the autumnal leaves transformed the forest floor into fiery channels of golden and crimson, leaving the trees as white as the embers of our nightly campfires. I will remember our adventure in Algonquin as four days of canoeing and campfires, sunsets and s’mores; it was the perfect way to experience Canada, in all its natural beauty.
