February 23-25 – Full Moon Guided Winter Hike

Full Moon Winter Hikes

Join Waaseyaa Cultural Tours for a 2h full moon guided winter hiking adventures in either Whitney, Ontario, Canada or at Mew Lake, Algonquin Park at the Old Airfield. Experience the magic of a winter landscape illuminated in only moonlight, all while learning some of the stories held by this land.

These hikes are guided by moonlight (no flashlights unless absolutely needed!), though participants are welcome to bring them along. All ages are welcome to join these adventures.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to connect with the magic of winter under the full moon. Grab your warmest gear, sturdy shoes, and get ready for a fun adventure!

Whitney
Moderate hike, approx. 3.5km (up & down hills, footpaths in the woods)

Under the moonlight we’ll wind our way through snow-covered coniferous and deciduous forests, navigating using well-packed footpaths and groomed sections of the old Ottawa, Arnprior & Parry Sound Railway. Together we’ll visit the shore of Kakinogamak (“Long Lake,” now also known as Galeairy Lake) and reach a height of land home to a significant sugar maple forest. Along the way, stories will be shared about the people who call this place home, both Algonquin and settler.

Dates:

Friday, February 23rd – 6:30pm
Friday, March 22nd – 7:30pm
Saturday, March 23rd – 7:30pm

Mew Lake
Easy hike, 3.5km (flat, groomed trails, open landscape)

Watch the moon rise over Lake of Two Rivers as we make our way through the Old Airfield at Mew Lake. We’ll discuss Algonquin and settler histories of this area, including logging history, and how they are all tied to the Madawaska River, which flows into this lake at two place – hence the name, Lake of Two Rivers.

Dates:
Saturday, February 24th – 6:30pm
Sunday, February 25th – 6:30pm
Sunday, March 24th – 7:30pm
Monday, March 25th – 7:30pm
