New Owners of Algonquin Outfitter Offering Pick Up in Toronto

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2013) - An Algonquin Park outfitter wants you to know how easy is to get from Toronto to Algonquin. Voyageur Outfitting, a canoe and kayak outfitter located at Algonquin Park access point # 1, has new owners who are using their award winning service and hustle to help adventure lovers get to Algonquin.

For 25 years, Voyageur Outfitting was a one man show, operated by a kind gentleman who rented canoes with a smile. Don Maclean turned 83 last year and felt it was time to turn the page. With a hunger to travel, Don, sold the business to its neighbour, Voyageur Quest, Algonquin specialists in guided adventure and one of the Canadian Tour Commission's signature experience providers. Voyageur Quest has renovated Don's outfitting location and has added some extra services to his famous canoe rental with a smile service.

Starting on the 2013 May long weekend and continuing with weekly service through the summer / fall to Thangsgiving, Voyageur Outfitting offers return transportation from downtown Toronto direct to Algonquin park's north west corner, a 3.5 hour drive. Departing on Friday morning at 7:45am and returning Sunday at 7pm, this service is ideal for canoe trippers who are looking for convenience and a short wilderness adventure. The outfitter provides all equipment, organizes your park permit and has options to add on meals and lodge accommodation. The new owners have also added the option to book all services including the transportation on line.

"For 30 years, Don provided great service at a great location" new owner John Langford explains. "When he handed me the keys, he said being a canoe outfitter is a "wholesome business'. We plan on continuing Don's kind service ways and add some additional conveniences to make it easy and enjoyable to get to Algonquin and enjoy a canoe trip with your friends or family."

$175 CAD for return transportation from downtown Toronto. 3 day canoe outfitting packages from $138 CAD per person.
