Canadian Destinations - Algonquin Park

The essence of Algonquin is in its vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes. The only way to explore the interior of this park is by canoe or on foot.

There is also a second area of Algonquin that is more accessable to the back country - along the 56 kilometer stretch of Highway 60. Here you can enjoy camping at one of eight campgrounds, hike one of 14 trails, take part in extensive Natural Heritage Education programs, and visit Algonquin’s exceptional Visitor Centre, Logging Museum and Art Centre. For over 50 years, each Thursday in August, park staff have offered the “Public Wolf Howl”, a highly engaging program on wolf ecology that includes howling for wolves. Weather and wildlife dependent. Below are just the highlights of the park for photographers.

  • Amazing fall colours during the end of September and early October.
  • Amazing moose viewing opportunities along Highway 60 as the moose are attracted to roadside salt left after the winter sanding operations
  • Spring also features outstanding birding opportunities throughout the park with spring arrivals and migrants

We frequently visit the park on our Canadian Workshops. Please check out all our workshops to experience Algonquin Park and other Canadian treasures for photographers.
