The Grand River Rafting Company offers three different canoe routes to explore on the Grand River.
Our canoe trips range from 11 kms to 17 kms.
Our canoe routes are in a wilderness setting… with good wildlife viewing. The beauty of the valley is nature unexpected.
The Grand River warms up quickly, averages 1 m in depth, moves about 2-3 kms/hr and has shallow rapids on a stony bottom.
HOW IT WORKS:
We have you park at the end point… equip everyone with gear and map, then shuttle upstream to the start point. At the start point you get your boat, then take as long as you like paddling back to your vehicle. At the end point, our staff helps you off the river.. and you walk 400 m to your vehicle. Easy as that!

Basically we look after everything… you just bring yourselves and your lunch.
With us, your safety is more important then your money. If water temperatures are below 10 C, we will not put canoes out, because if the boat tips there is a hypothermia risk.
We want you to enjoy your trip… not endure it!
