About Your Tryp

This is a 3-day canoe trip across Algonquin Park with like-minded travelers in their 30s. Ready to shut down your laptop and wake up in a new environment. WE FEEL YOU!

You’ll experience Ontario like never before with other like-minded travellers. Backcountry camping and portaging is truly the only way to breakaway from the crowds, appreciate wildlife, and feel the Canadian wilderness. That’s what this Tryp is all about.

This is the ultimate weekend for anyone looking for a close-to-home adventure.
