An Algonquin Christmas Carol: Paddling in a Winter Wonderland

This "Algonquin Carol" is whistled (or can be sang!) to the tune of the famous Holiday Christmas Carol: "Walking In A Winter Wonderland". It is the same song, in every sense, but some of the lyrics have been reworked from the perspective of a paddler in Algonquin Park, Canada. We hope you enjoy this fun version of a classic carol.

Paddling in a Winter Wonderland

(Lyrics reworked from Walkin in a Winter Wonderland)

Paddling in a Winter Wonderland

The wolves howl
are you listening
On river banks
snow is glistening 
A beautiful sight
We're happy tonight

Paddling in a winter wonderland. 

Gone away are the crowds now
The view is clear off of our bow 
I'll whistle a song, as we go along

Paddling in a winter wonderland. 

In the meadow there's a short portage
With a felled tree to walk around
I'll say: Are you tired? 
You'll say: No 'mam
I only feel the peace that we have found.

The north star draws even nearer
Reflected by the lake's mirror   
We drift on and away   
In Algonquin, we play

Paddling in this winter wonderland.

Seasons Greeting to our paddling friends around the world!

Mike and Fiona wish you all the best for this holiday season
and thank you for your support for Badger® Paddles this past year.
Have a merry holiday (however you celebrate) and a happy new year!
