Friends & Family Float on the Grand (Rafting)

4-Hour, Self-Guided

Relax & float down a Canadian Heritage River surrounded by scenic forests, located in the heart of southern Ontario, just an hour west of Toronto. This day trip adventure launches from our private dock at our 140 year old Outfitters shop in historic Paris, and travels downstream to one of South Ontario’s largest Conservation Areas.. Float on 8 person rafts along the Grand River for this unbelievable natural experience close to home.

This is an awesome 1/2 day trip of self-guided rafting on the Grand River from picturesque town of Paris, floating down river to Brant Conservation Area.
This trip takes you along a relaxing section of the Grand River, with dashes of small swifts to keep your interest piqued. You can view great blue herons, ospreys, Mallard ducks, turtles and perhaps white-tailed deer along the riverbank, with an occasional bald eagle. Stop and explore rare Carolinian forests lining the banks of the Grand to experience the Grand as First Nations people saw it thousands of years ago, and as the first European settlers viewed it when they came here 350 years ago.

In this section of the river, you can take time to experience one of the many cold springs feeding into the river. If you approach quietly, you might spot a beaver or a muskrat as you float past Whiteman’s Creek. The trip ends in Brant Conservation Area by Brantford. As you reach the Conservation Area the river forms a 3 km long lake that offers great fishing and water activities. You land at Brant Conservation Area, one of the largest natural areas in Southern Ontario, with hundreds of hectares of Conservation area full of forest and grasslands. While you’re there, enjoy the Conservation Area which has many trails and nature areas, picnic sites and a huge 1/3 acre pool.
