Happy Easter to our Algonquin Park canoe tripping friends ! It’s a warm today- close to 10c- and our first day to hit double digits in 2015. The warm air has us excited for when we all can first dip our paddle and head into the back country for some trout fishing( below is a picture of legendary guide Frank Kuiack returning back from one of our annual Trout Fishing canoe trips). So far it’s tracking a lot like last spring ( 2014) when the ice went out at the north west corner in the first few days of May. Have a look here at Algonquin Park’s latest information re ice out.
If you are planning a canoe trip in Algonquin’s north west corner this May, be prepared for super high water levels. In October of 2014, the South River – Amable du Fond water ways were in flooding when the lakes iced over. If you are into whitewater –this spring should be legendary! Are you itching for some fresh air and some “unplugged” time , come see us this Spring. Our location at Algonquin Park access # 1 is a long way from any highway and feels remote . Think 28 km of dirt road off the highway!
If you can’t wait for the ice to melt, come join us and stay at one of our Lakeside chalet suites located down the lake at our Algonquin Cottage Outpost. With heat, solar power, kitchen , deck and BBQ – a very comfortable base for you to hike and watch the ice go out.
Our used canoe sale starts May 6. We have a few Scott Prospector and one or two Souris River available between $895 and $1250. Call our office if you want us to send you pictures.
Don’t forget you can book all your cane rentals, pfds , tents, packs online on the Voyageur Outfitting site.
Look forward to seeing you in May !
