Limited Edition Spring Daytrip: Searching for Moose!

Moose, Canada’s majestic giants, are not just an emblem of the wilderness but encountering one in the wild is a moment that etches itself into memory, creating a story for the ages.

Nestled within the vast expanses of Algonquin Park, a sanctuary boasting a flourishing moose population, lies an extraordinary opportunity for wildlife enthusiasts. Particularly in spring, the Highway 60 corridor that carves through the heart of the park becomes a prime stage for witnessing the Algonquin moose in their natural habitat. Drawn to the tender, newly sprouted plants adorning the ditches and open spaces, these magnificent creatures emerge in abundance, rejuvenated after the winter’s retreat.

Our adventure will lead us along the scenic Mizzy Lake Trail (only 3km), a journey complemented by strategic stops along Highway 60 at locales famed for moose sightings. While the thrill of spotting a moose adds to the allure of this trip, the journey itself promises to be enriching. Note that a big part of this trip is spent driving slowly through highway 60 in order to be able to find a Moose.

It’s important to note, while our hearts are set on witnessing these grand animals, the whims of wildlife are unpredictable, and thus, we cannot guarantee a moose sighting. However, should the opportunity arise, we will observe them responsibly, ensuring our presence contributes minimally to their natural way of life, observing from a distance that respects their space and peace.

Join us for an expedition where the journey is as rewarding as the destination, where the rustle of leaves underfoot and the serene beauty of Algonquin Park provide a backdrop to possibly meeting one of Canada’s most iconic wild inhabitants.
