September is the best time to see Algonquin Park Fall colours.
If you like the fall colours, September is the time to come to Algonquin Park. With cool nights and clear days, the Algonquin forests starts to change as early as the last week of August and are filled with colour by September 20. I love to come in the middle of the change - typically between September 15 to 25 where you see a dramatic change every day. The days are summer like and the water still warm enough for a dip. The morning mist is heavy providing living paintings every morning. Peak colour changes every year but the last 10 days of September are always incredible. This year , the colours appear to be peaking September 27 to 30.
Our three uniquque Algonquin properties offer warm and cozy retreats and ideal bases to catch the colour show. The Algonquin Island Retreat for couples is an extraordinary location to photogrpah or paint as the colours and water surround the cabin. The Algonquin Log Cabin is a good choice for those looking for a fall colour guided adventure filled with fun and interesting excursions and tasty harvest meals. The soloar powered Algonquin Cottage Outpost is another great choice for a private cabin or cottage to base your weekend fall colour adventure.
