Our iconic snowshoe expedition on the Historic Rail Trail in Algonquin Park – featuring quiet, snowy trails and cozy overnights in self-maintained hot tents – will give you magical memories you’ll never forget!

Area & activities

Algonquin Park’s 7,635 square-kilometres of forests, bogs, lakes and rivers, located in the traditional territory of the Omàmìwininìwag and Anishinabewaki Peoples, set the backdrop for an extraordinary winter experience.

Your adventure begins when you meet your group near Minden, Ontario. Here you’ll meet your seasoned instructors and get geared up for your course. The trip is a hands-on experience from the start, where you’ll learn navigation skills, proper wood gathering, camp crafts, setting up a hot tent, meal preparation and other skills essential to the success of your adventure. But it’s not just about surviving, it’s about thriving, so we’ll also focus on building your leadership skills and resilience.

Once we hit the trail, you’ll traverse the snowy landscape on snowshoes, pulling your gear in pulks (sleds) during the day, and spend nights in traditional canvas-walled tents heated by a crackling wood-burning stove or winter shelters under the stars.

Winter camping isn’t for the faint of heart; it requires both individual grit and teamwork for a successful journey – and you’ll enjoy every minute of it.

Learning outcomes

Our expert instructors will guide you through unique challenges that require your group to work together to solve problems, reflect on your journey, and discuss how to apply your skills and what you’ve learned when you return home. The course is designed to have a lasting and measurable impact in three key areas:

Improved resilience – Improve your mental and physical health and learn how to overcome challenges to succeed.

Better leadership and teamwork skills – Learn the skills you need to succeed in school, work and life by becoming more confident, cooperative and a respectful team member.

Stronger connection to nature – Develop a lifelong relationship with nature.
