I signed up for the "Morning Tea with Moose" canoe camping trip. Food was excellent as they used local and organic food, all prepared by in-house chef. Our guides, Kieran and Chanel were very knowledgeable and put forth great effort to make sure we had a enjoyable and pleasant trip. This trip provided beautiful scenery of the backwoods of Algonquin...

Simple, relaxing, and first class hospitality. We had the pleasure of visiting Northern Edge Algonquin for 3 nights in July/16 and had a wonderful experience. If your group is looking for a truly "unplugged" nature retreat with amazing food and superb customer service, I highly recommend NEA. The entire staff (especially Jeff and Kim) are passionate about what they do...

We did the 3 day experience at Northern Edge Algonquin and it was awesome on so many fronts. Accommodations were good, food was amazing and the hosts Jeff and Kim were terrific. I respect how eco-friendly the experience is, but still feels like a great break.

I attended a 3-day tourism conference at NEA in mid April. Even though I have been in tourism for decades, I still learned new things at NEA. I liked the welcoming campfire at Reception.
