Savor the Outdoors Without Having to "Rough it"
Whether you're a devoted nature-lover or simply wish to get a little outdoorsy, there is no finer Muskoka getaway than the Algonquin Eco-Lodge. Its attractions are bountiful, it's hospitality unparalleled, and its relaxation deep. It doesn't take an outdoor enthusiast to appreciate the beauty here! From the onset of your stay you'll be blown-away by the lodge's scenic surroundings. Its location on the southern border of Algonquin Park offers easy access to over 40 kilometers of groomed wilderness trails, one of the largest single trail systems in Southern Ontario. Families can enjoy an afternoon observing the beautiful flora and fauna along the trail or from the lake in a cozy canoe. These activities are popular regardless of season! Spring and Summer bring fantastic greenery and wildlife, while the fall colors are truly spectacular! In winter, the lodge offers cross-country skiing, dog sledding, and snowshoeing. Meanwhile, the lodge itself is as comfortable as it is environmentally conscious. Beautifully secluded amidst the remote Algonquin Park forest, hydro lines and telephone poles are nowhere in sight. It's completely off-grid, and yet creates its own energy we from an onsite waterfall. Sustainability, thy name is Algonquin Eco-Lodge!

Path of the Snow Walker
Snowshoe & GPS Weekend Getaway Adventures in Algonquin Park, Ontario – a Meld of Ancient & Modern Sciences –
Imagine snowshoeing through the forest of Algonquin Park, Ontario, following fresh wolf tracks in thigh high snow. As you pass a rocky outcrop you spot a white tailed deer. Unlike you, the deer must stay on their well used trails. But, since you are wearing a modern set of snowshoes, you are free to roam wherever you please in the forest. And, since you are using a high tech global positioning system device (GPS), you have no fear of getting lost.
This self guided snowshoe adventure will teach you the basics of very ancient and very modern activities. Historians believe that snowshoes were first used about 4000-6000 years ago in Central Asia. When humans migrated across the Bering Strait they brought the ancient knowledge of snowshoes with them. The natives have been using snowshoes in the Algonquin Park region for thousands of years while, more recently, explorers and fur trappers have been using them for over 400 years.
