Exotic Holidays - Algonquin Eco-Lodge


Highlights

The Algonquin Eco-Lodge is located on the southern border of Algonquin Park (just 3 hours from Toronto or Ottawa).  It is a wilderness enthusiasts’ dream come true! Whether it is summer or winter, there is always plenty to see and do at this wilderness lodge.

The Algonquin Eco-Lodge is the absolute best lodge or accommodation you can find when it comes to cross country skiing, dog sledding, snowshoeing, hiking, and canoeing. The fact is the Eco-Lodge has one of the largest single trail systems in Southern Ontario and offers one of the best wilderness experiences in Canada!  Fall Colours are truly spectacular!  Hiking the lodge’s trails or paddling a canoe on the lodge’s private lake in the autumn is an unforgettable way to experience Algonquin Park and its wilderness.

The Algonquin Wilderness Eco-Lodge was designed to give clients the best of a wilderness experience, while minimizing the environmental footprint.  The lodge offers you the feel and ambiance of a European mountain lodge.  It is also by far one of the most secluded lodges in the Algonquin Provincial Park.

The focus on the environment has resulted in the Eco-Lodge being awarded the 2012 winner of the Ontario Tourism Sustainable Tourism Award!

The Eco-Lodge is set in a beautifully secluded and remote settings of the Algonquin Park forests.  Hydro lines and telephone poles do not reach here.  The property is completely off-grid.  Yet, the Eco-Lodge continues to provide all the finer comforts of today’s living with the alternative energy the lodge creates from its own waterfall (the lodge is powered 100% by micro-hydroelectricity).

The Eco-Lodge offers indoor plumbing, hot showers, an outdoor wood-fired sauna, and even a carbon neutral hot tub (the only one in southern Ontario) heated by electricity from the lodge’s own waterfall!  With 17 private bedrooms, (double and dorm style) there is more than enough space to comfortably hold 34 people. 

The Eco-Lodge is the perfect setting for your “Digital Detox” vacation.  With no phone lines, no internet service, and even cell phones its is guaranteed that “work” cannot get hold of you.  At the Eco-Lodge, you have no choice but soak up in the beauty of nature and its wilderness.  Enjoy the company of your family and friends, play a board game with your spouse, or join the other guests toasting marshmallows around the campfire. Leave your laptops and i-phones home and bring the book you wanted to read!

Add to all this, the extensive groomed wilderness trail network, a private 30-acre (12.5 ha) lake complete with a family of beavers, and even a resident wolf pack, and it makes your time spent at the Eco-Lodge an experience to remember for a lifetime, and one of the best ways to explore Algonquin Park.
