Lake Opeongo, Algonquin Park - Instructional Tour

Regular price $975

Do you want to try backcountry sea kayak camping in a relaxed and stress-free environment? Finally, you have an option!  Accessible campsites, backcountry wilderness and smaller water than the Great Lakes. Lake Opeongo is big enough to sea kayak and small enough to be manageable.

 You might even see a moose!

This adventure is designed for sea kayakers who have taken Level 1 and want a fun, backcountry experience that isn't Level 2. Stress-free kayak tripping with the opportunity to learn skills at your own pace. This trip intends to give paddlers the experience of participating in an expedition without having to paddle in big water.
