Badger Paddles' 1rst Cameo Appearance!

Algonquin Outfitters have been servicing Algonquin Park-goers and locals for almost 50 years and are world famous for bringing adventure to hundreds and thousands of people. 
Just released this week are a series of NEW videos showcasing AO's Oxtongue location; outfitting services; experienced and knowledgeable staff; lightweight canoes and high quality equipment.

AO's Randy Mitson best describes their awesome services:
"Algonquin Outfitters, a family owned and operated business, has been serving Algonquin Park canoe trippers since 1961. We are paddlers ourselves, so we know and love Algonquin and we know and love canoe tripping! With several locations in and around the park, a wide range of services, including equipment rentals, complete and partial outfitting, guided day trips, custom guided trips and water taxi service, Algonquin Outfitters can meet the needs of just about any Algonquin Park visitor.

From planning to packing, Algonquin Outfitters can help with every aspect of your canoe trip. Our Partial Outfitting service allows you to rent just a canoe and/or extra pieces of equipment. Complete Outfitting lets you show up with your personal gear and find all your food and equipment ready to go - ideal for people without the time, experience and/or equipment to put together their own wilderness trip. Our packages include all the camping and canoeing equipment you need for an enjoyable trip, as well as a nourishing, delicious menu designed for wilderness travel.

The most valuable part of our outfitting service is the training, advice and help that our experienced guides and outfitters will give when custom tailoring your trip, route and equipment to your abilities and desires. Provided for no extra charge, this service is just one of the things that makes Algonquin Outfitters one of the finest outdoor adventure stores in North America. You can even bring this service along on your canoeing experience by hiring one of our guides to accompany you on a fully guided trip."

Watch for a couple of cameo appearances by Badger Paddles!  Also - be sure to check out Algonquin Outfitter's Channel (on Youtube) for some more great informative videos and stop by an AO location during any season.... you won't be disappointed!
