Opening day at Algonquin Park access # 1 for  2015

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 !
