An Algonquin Park photo taken by one of our guests.
Algonquin is the oldest and one of the largest parks in Canada. Its unique mixture of forest types and variety of environments allows it to support an uncommon diversity of plant and animal life. For this reason hiking and wildlife viewing are among travellers’ favourite activities. Other popular attractions and activities include:
- The Visitor Centre featuring exhibits about the natural and cultural history of the park
- The Logging Museum with a 1.3 km trail and a recreated logging camp giving visitors a glimpse of the pioneers’ way of life
- Hiking with 19 interpretive trails
- The Weekly Wolf Howl (in season)
The Deakins on Mountainview Bed and Breakfast is located equidistant from the park’s East Gate and the also popular Sand Lake Gate where canoeing on the scenic Barron River Canyon and camping are the preferred activities. Allow a full day or more to explore Algonquin Park.
