Itinerary

Join others for your trip briefing, gear up, and climb aboard the bus for a short transfer to the ‘put-in’, the start of your river day.

Here you meet your guide who will have you practise your strokes to prepare for the rapids ahead. Your guidelines the boat up for the best line, then with everyone paddling, you crash through waves a meter in height and get very wet- but the water is warm with Ontario’s hot summer weather. Each rapid on the Ottawa is followed by a ‘pool’, giving you time to relax and prepare for the next one. We stop for a snack and maybe some cliff-jumping, float and
perhaps see an osprey or beaver.

Before you know it, you meet the Pontoon boat, where you’ll climb aboard for a hearty hot barbequed meal on the return cruise to the resort. Rafter wrap-up has you relive your day’s adventure as you watch a short video of your own trip: a great souvenir to purchase. Before you depart, enjoy a sauna or a hot outdoor shower and play on our sandy beach – canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.
