ALGONQUIN PARK HIKING AND SNOWSHOEING
Join us for a day tour to the oldest provincial park in Canada. Depending on the weather conditions we will be hiking or snowshoeing. We will provide you snowshoes if there will be enough snow which you can use with your regular winter booth. Snowshoes will protect you from sinking into a deep snow. Discover Algonquin in typical Canadian way!
