Thank you for your answers ! We'll think about it

I just have another question, we did the Highland trail this weekend and the mosquitoes/bug situation was crazy, is it still that bad in the beginning of July ?

Thank you for your help

Hello everyone !

We are 2 French Students who are visiting the area and several canoe trips seemed essential ! Unfortunately we don't really know where to begin.
We were worried that the camping spaces would be booked quickly so we already planned the Rain/Islet/Mccraney loop for Canada Day weekend. Can you confirm that it is a good choice for the scenery ? We can always change sites if needed.

We would also like to go on another 2 day weekend trip (one night) and would welcome some suggestions We can go anytime between now and end of August.

Our requirements:
* Distance: no more than 3.5 hour drive from Toronto and launch site near an outfitter (rental car).
* Length of canoe trip: 4 to 6 hours of paddling/portaging each day, (or less, it is not a performance pursuit).
* Portages: we do not mind some portages, we're used to hike.
* Scenery: the best possible (we are a bit spoiled), we want to make this trip unforgettable !
* Privacy: if possible, we don't really know the amount of people that come there.

All suggestions are welcome and very much appreciated ! Thank you for your help.
