Algonquin Park, Almaguin Highlands, Muskoka & Parry Sound

Exploring Things To Do in Algonquin Park, Almaguin Highlands, Muskoka & Parry Sound

Just two hours north of Toronto you’ll find a quintessential wilderness experience that’s as unique in the world as it is surprising. Against the backdrop of thousands of sparkling blue lakes, the jutting granite of the Canadian shield, and lush, vibrant forests, you’ll enjoy a warm welcome and unforgettable adventures in Ontario’s most popular vacation destination.

Take an adrenaline-filled ATV tour into the woods and onto the rocks of the Canadian shield to feel the rush that comes from exploring terrain not accessible by foot. Take a guided tour by paddle or kayak over stunning lakes and rivers for some of the best fresh water paddling in the world. Hike or bike on connected trails and routes that lead you to places you’ll never forget. Strike your tent or park your RV in one of hundreds of public and private campgrounds, including a dozen provincial and national parks (and don’t forget to give ‘glamping’ a go!).

Bring your camera for wonderful wildlife viewing and practice your technique for a guided wolf howl. Take a cruise on one of many historic boats and enjoy a leisurely tour by waterway. Tour by motorcycle on meandering roads through granite outcrops and sweet twisties ’round lakes. And whet your whistle at one of our many exceptional craft breweries and a special winery that produces award-winning vintages from a cranberry bog. Or just relax lakeside and do nothing (which is actually our speciality).

Known as “Ontario’s cottage country,” the region has been welcoming travellers for over a hundred years to charming resorts, B&Bs and hotels that dot our beautiful waterways. From Algonquin Park in the east (Canada’s oldest provincial park) to Georgian Bay in the west (a UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve), visitors who stay in these parts relish especially their days in, on and beside the lakes – and we can’t wait to welcome you here!
