Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Paddling their own canoes

 Some of our guests arrive knowing how to handle a canoe... 

That would be these young chaps, Emil and Finn, who took advantage of a lovely autumn day last week to canoe out to the Island. They looked completely Pro.

Others have never had the opportunity to be in one of these iconic vessels...

That would be this family. Mom, and all three of the children, spent a bit of time with Nancy on a cooler, overcast day when the lake was a flat calm, and all of them mastered the basic techniques.

Away they went, exploring along the shore.  While Helen and Anji were content to paddle a bit more sedately, the boys really dug in and got the canoe moving.

We think everyone should know how to handle a canoe. There is magic in being this close to the water, part of the lake, and yet able to chart your own course.

  1. It's a very good way to get your head cleared from all those things that don't really matter, getting the canoe out and the oar in the water.
