Full - Moose Viewing Adventure Bus Day Trip

Algonquin Park is One of the Best Places in the World to View MooseWildlife Viewing and Algonquin Park early Spring Hiking Adventure Bus Day Trip

Algonquin Park, Ontario - Ontario is a nature-lover's paradise: 7,725 km of lakes, rivers, forest, trails, camping, comfortable lodges, 2000 km of canoe routes It's also, perhaps the best place in North America to spot moose. There are about 3500 in the park.The best time for spotting them is in May and June, and it's easiest in the early morning along 'the Corridor', a the 56-km stretch of Hwy 60 that cuts through the southwest section of the park. The moose often come right to the roadside. Sodium-depleted from the winter months, moose hang around the highway because of the salty water in roadside ditches and marshes (for a moose, a marsh is like a big salad bowl). Salt is deposited in this area each winter during snow removal. Take hwy speed warnings seriously. This is a great area for spotting the majestic moose.

    I will be on this one for sure Ted. However, there are no moose in Algonquin Park. They have all been shipped south to some retirement farm in Florida.

    Can you tell me a bit more about the trip? When we'll arrive at the park, what the itinerary at the park is, how long we'll be hiking, what time we'll be heading back. Thanks!

      Hi Allan, This Moose Adventure Bus trip is for those who have always wanted to see a Canadian Moose in the wild. Algonquin Park has Moose. During the early spring the moose often come out to the road side to lick the salt. Due to this need for salt the early spring is the best time of year to see Algonquin Park Moose. Will we see moose for sure, nope. Do we have a very good chance of seeing a moose or two or three, yep. The bus will be at the Keele TTC Subway Stn. at 8am and at York Mills at 8:30am. We will return to Toronto around 9:30pm. A long day, yes, but that is what it takes to go moose hunting. While in Algonquin Park we plan on going to the visitor centre and due a few of the short hiking trails. I hope to see you and a moose while on this trip.
