Luxury Algonquin – Experiences, Lifestyles, Travel
Ontario’s biggest (and Canada’s oldest) protected wilderness, Algonquin Park is a huge swath of trees, rocks, and lakes encompassing some 7,653 sq km of incredible scenery. A quarter the size of Belgium and 1.5 bigger than Prince of Edward Island, Algonquin stretches from North Bay to the Ottawa River and is framed by the Trans Canada Highway to the north and Highway 60 in the south.
Along with Algonquin Park’s diverse habitats comes a plethora of plant and animal life. More than 53 species of mammals, 272 species of birds, 31 species of reptiles and amphibians, 54 species of fish, and approximately 7,000 species of insects are known to hang out within Algonquin’s broad boundaries. Add to that the well over 1,000 species of plants, and it’s little wonder so many people from around the world are drawn here to see Mother Nature in all her glory.
Simply driving through the Park will reward you with sightings of porcupines, river otters, and beaver. Spring offers the best roadside moose viewing in the province, and you’ll see many of these magnificent animals during a leisurely drive along the Highway 60 Corridor on a May morning or evening.
Let Luxury Lake of Bays be your personal guide to all that’s great about Algonquin Park, whether you’re here for some wilderness camping, hiking and biking, canoeing and kayaking, or staying at one of the three beautiful wilderness resorts located here.
