Experience West Algonquin by Canoe 

The natural Northern Ontario beauty of Almaguin evokes a sense of boldness and joy that is priceless. For those who like a little less structure to their trips, and maybe a little Algonquin backcountry, why not canoe? 

Swift Canoe & Kayak has a location in South River just minutes away from Algonquin Park’s Kawawaymog (Round) Lake (Access Point #1). Here you can rent your gear and go for a paddle where you might be rewarded with a glimpse of wildlife such as beavers, otters, birds and maybe a moose. Or, bring your fishing kit and maybe you’ll pull in some beauty walleye. 


There are also three Algonquin Park access points located in Kearney, south Almaguin. 

The best part of Almaguin is the wilderness within reach, if backcountry camping isn’t your thing, you can retreat to one of the many unique accommodations in the region and enjoy comfort after a long, amazing day in the woods. 

Note: It’s exciting to encounter wildlife but let them stay wild. Refrain from feeding or approaching animals and remember to always store food securely to avoid any unpleasant run-ins with our animal friends. Also, remember to tread lightly, and leave no trace because you wouldn’t like it if the racoons came and made a mess in your home.
