a place just beyond...
Wolves howling. Leaves rustling. Water splashing. Heed the call of nature and escape to South Algonquin - your authentic, incomparable, all-season wilderness destination just a few hours north of Toronto.
From cotton-candy sunsets at our beaches, to white water bubbling down rivers, massive ice walls on granite outcrops, and tree-lined emerald horizons across shimmering lakes, South Algonquin’s secret places will tug at your heart long after you leave.

Build Traditions & Lasting Memories
When was the last time you stepped away from the glow of your phone? Or, tried a little “off-the-grid” living? In South Algonquin, our rhythm of life is different. Guided more by the changing seasons, the rise and fall of the sun and moon, and the unexpected, awe-inspiring presence of natural wonders, we treasure what each unique day has to offer and care deeply about the place we call home. Come experience a different way of living in Ontario’s hinterland.
