Algonquin Park - Arrival and Day 1May 18, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C
Adventure mode on!
After seeing some of Canada’s biggest cities, we’re in Algonquin Park for three full days.
(Nature, nature, nature and no WiFi!)
We arrived at Bongo’s Lodge (our AirBnb) on Saturday evening and decided to get pizza in one of the three restaurants in Whitney (yes, the village is tiny). The owner decided he wanted us to learn how to make pizza ourselves and taught us how “Whitney Pizza” is made. (The secret is tons of cheese)
Saturday night is also music night at Bongo’s, a slightly crazy guy who is also some kind of maire here?!😄
After the first night in our lovely, cosy room we went for our first hikes in the park.
Booth’s Rock (5.1 km), Lookout (2.1 km) and Beaver Pond (2.0 km)
All of them have scenic lookouts but the Beaver Pond was my personal favourite! Even though we had a bit of rain that day, we had wonderful first day.Read more
