Algonquin Provincial Park
For many visitors, Algonquin Provincial Park captures the archetypal Canadian boreal landscape: shimmering blue lakes, towering pines and granite rock faces carved by the retreating glaciers. The park was established in 1893, in a rugged, region of southern Ontario some 300km (186 miles) north of Toronto, and quickly became popular with canoeists and outdoor enthusiasts.Tel: +1 705 633 5572.
