Sample Canoe Routes Make your holiday great, take time to enjoy it! You can spend days, if not weeks, creating awesome memories in Algonquin Park. Your journey is going to include portages which are a part of every route in the Park. They range from less than meters to over meters and link together the lakes and rivers of Algonquin.

Portages are game changers, making some canoe routes harder than others. The number of portages, the distance and the gear that you have to carry are all factors to consider.

Planning your portages for distance and time you are willing to travel is essential. Planning your gear is critical. Remember that this is a holiday, not a race.

Okay maybe your group is competitive. But do plan for travel and leisure; and weather. The weather can affect your travel time; the wind can be friend or foe. Packing as light as possible, with all the essentials is really important. On longer trips, having a layover day or two is not a bad idea.

If you are unfamiliar with the Park, let us help you plan a suitable route. We want to make it easy. After all, this is your vacation. Below is a sampling of 3 to 5 day canoe trips, complete with a map.

They can easily be modified by adding layover days or travelling a little further or a little shorter each day. For most parties we consider 6 to 8 hours from the time you leave your morning campsite till you arrive at your next site a full day lunch and swim breaks included. The second day is a day off for relaxing or exploring or fishing or whatever.

On the third day you return to your starting point by the same route you went out on. Great first time trips. One is a short, easy trip, with the other two being longer more difficult trips.
