This private Algonquin Provincial Park photography tour is all about getting you water access to great subjects for beautiful wildlife and landscape photography. Algonquin Adventure Tours proudly became the first Canadian company to start guiding with eco-friendly Torqeedo electric motors from Germany. These silent, yet powerful, 3hp motors, allow us to responsibly approach wildlife with a spectacular water level perspective. We can also efficiently travel between scenic stops. Your private Algonquin Park VIP electric canoe photography tour follows in the footsteps of one of Canada’s greatest painters, Tom Thomson. Our electric canoe comfortably takes 2 passengers (we have three motorized canoes, if you have more than 2 people) on an unforgettable guided exploration of Algonquin Park’s historic Canoe Lake. The 3-hour adventure is split 70% silent electric motor and 30% paddling (by your guide). This tour is perfect for those who want to have their hands free for photography. Your adventure includes effortless travel across Canoe Lake, a scenic picnic (Henrietta’s sandwich & granola bar or breakfast pastries) and hunting beautiful scenery reflections while paddling down a meandering stream system ethically seeking wildlife to photograph. All ages and fitness levels are welcome.
Our VIP electric canoe photography tour is guided by the Algonquin Adventure Tours founder, Stuart Lorne Letovsky.
This tour has two areas of focus:
1) Algonquin Park Wildlife Photography – For bird photography, the common loon, great blue heron, Canada goose, common merganser, kingfisher, grey jay, grackle, blue jay, eagle, hawk, osprey, turkey vulture, pipers and gulls are common subjects. We often get to photograph snapping turtles, painted turtles and frogs, as well. If you like insect photography, there are often good opportunities for dragonfly and butterfly photography. Although less common, we have enjoyed beaver, muskrat, otter, mink, raccoon, chipmunk, squirrel, deer and moose photography. Although we can’t guarantee seeing a moose (please note that our Algonquin Park 3 day moose & beaver photography safari is your best opportunity to photograph a Canadian moose), or any particular animal, we can guarantee creating excellent photos & memories for a lifetime.
2) Algonquin Park Landscape Photography – Fabulous fall colors, misty mornings, perfect panoramas, righteous reflections and supreme sunsets are all possible on this super scenic photography tour. On rainy days, you might even see a rainbow.
Where to take some excellent photographs in Algonquin Park. We also learn about Algonquin Park and painter Tom Thomson’s history, nature interpretation and animal behavior.
