Algonquin Eco Lodge

The Algonquin Wilderness Eco-Lodge, located on the southern border of Algonquin Park (only 3 hours from Toronto or Ottawa), is a wilderness enthusiasts' dream. Summer or Winter, there is always plenty to do and see. With over 60 km of groomed trackset and wilderness trails inside Algonquin Park, the Algonquin Eco-Lodge is a leader of hotels for cross country skiing, dog sledding, hiking, canoeing, and mountain biking.

Designed and built as an Algonquin Nordic Wilderness Lodge, the Ecolodge was created to give the best wilderness experience possible, while minimizing its impact on the environment. It has the feel and atmosphere of a European mountain lodge, and is one of the most secluded hotels in Algonquin Park. In fact, the experience begins with a leisurely 2.3 km walk, or cycle, or ski (about 20 minutes) through Algonquin Park to reach the front door. (Don't worry - your luggage will be transferred for you)

The Eco-Lodge is beautifully secluded amidst remote Algonquin forests, where even hydro lines and telephone poles can't reach. And yet, with a combination of alternative energy sources, the Eco-Lodge still provides all the finer comforts, such as indoor plumbing, battery powered hot showers, an outdoor wood-fired year round sauna, and even a hot tub for use in the cold winters. With 17 private bedrooms, there is more than enough space to comfortably hold 34 people.
