A leader in transformational travel, Northern Edge Algonquin creates & hosts all-inclusive nature retreats for small groups of 10-35 participants. Guests unplug in nature for multi-day experiences that reconnect, recharge, and re-inspire.
Sleep comfortably in eco-cabins designed in harmony with our forest home, nourish yourself with organic & locally-sourced foods crafted with care, and participate in tailored experiences with locals including storytellers, artists, musicians, naturalists, yoga and wellness facilitators, food growers and chefs.
A sanctuary from technology, cell phones, and constant connectivity, Northern Edge Algonquin Retreat & Awareness Centre is located near Toronto, just a few hours away from your everyday city life. Slip away from the world for a few days of adventure, restoration, rejuvenation.
On-site chef, Greg Waters, prepares seasonal menus that focus on balancing globally far-flung tastes with provincially produced foods. Ingredients are locally sourced from The Edge's own garden and local Ontario farms.
Meals take into account any dietary restrictions guests may have.
The Edge has a variety of indoor & outdoor meeting and breakout spaces for your team meetings and other activities. Your meeting will be free from cell phone signals, wi-fi, and the interruptions of an office atmosphere.

FOOD & BEVERAGES AVAILABLE ON-SITE
Proudly serving a taste of our region, cooking at the Edge focuses on balancing globally far-flung tastes with provincially produced foods. While seasonal menus are inspired by flavours from afar, we seek to prepare our meals with ingredients raised closer to home.
Our award winning mealtime steward, Greg Waters and our Culinary Experiences have been recognized by the tourism industry as some of the best in Canada. Some food ingredients come from our garden, but most come from local producers and Ontario farms, including a local organic meat provider. We even serve local craft ales from Highlander Brewery in South River and wines made by co-founder Martha Lucier’s family at Viewpointe Estates Winery.
Our promise: Your mealtime experiences at our Algonquin Park home will be remembered and treasured by everyone. Our meals take into account specialty food restrictions for health and personal reasons ensuring each individual’s needs are looked after when we deliver a colourful, tasteful buffet style meal.
