Floating down the gentle currents of the Grand River is a fun, relaxing way to experience the scenery and wildlife of this Canadian Heritage River. The hefty rafts used by area outfitters are virtually unflippable, making it a great activity for not-so-strong swimmers. Children as young as two have been known to enjoy the glide! As you float down the river, your guide will point out interesting sights and wildlife along the way.


If you’re looking for a rafting experience that’s more rapid than relaxing, you’ll want to book an early spring trip when high water on the Nith River near Paris produces exciting whitewater rafting with easy-to-moderate Class 1 & 2 rapids.
