Algonquin is a near-North paradise of 3,500 square miles of forests, lakes and rivers atop the rugged Canadian Shield. This idyllic haven from urban life features 1,500 lakes and is easily accessible from dozens of major U.S. and Canadian population centres.

Naturalist Michael Runtz has spent decades exploring Algonquin Provincial Park and chronicling its flora and fauna in all seasons. Let him be your guide to everything a visitor might want to know about Ontario’s oldest provincial park.

Features include:
  • access routes, hiking trails and canoe routes indicated on easy-to-read full-colour maps
  • chapters on wolf-howling and bird-calling tips, most scenic locations and seasonal highlights such as fall colours and Northern Lights displays
  • tips on where, when and how best to see moose, wolves, birds and other wildlife
  • points of historical interest, such as ranger cabins, early logging remains and aboriginal rock paintings
  • a complete list of park facilities, services and publications.
The new, expanded colour edition of The Explorer’s Guide to Algonquin Park includes dozens of the author’s award-winning photographs and chapters on local animal species and their habitats.

Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
