Grand Experiences: Big Creek Eco-Adventure

Paddle the Grand River by canoe or kayak, on a 5-hour guided trip.

An expedition into South Ontario’s rare & mysterious Carolinian Forest on Canadian Amazon, Big Creek. Canada’s southernmost wilderness trip, flowing through lush, thick rain forest, it’s a true Eco-adventure. Seldom traveled Big Creek is covered by an overhead canopy of giant ancient trees, home to birds of prey hide from Eagles to Great Horned Owls hiding in the canopy. Giant toads croak in a throaty harmony & fish glide by in the deep waters below as you discover the heart of Canada’s southern wilderness. Part of the Long Point World Biosphere on Ontario’s South Coast along Lake Erie.

Experience the awe and excitement of this fascinating world as the small hidden river sweeps you along, enjoying the music of 200 species of songbirds that pass through this forest. with creatures of every kind traveling through the undergrowth. Animal tracks, Muskrat burrows & Otter dens tell stories of abundant wildlife and active ecosystem.

Part of Canada’s most biodiverse eco-system with miles of quite backwoods full of old growth trees hundreds of years old. Amazing scenery plus a paddling experience just as awesome. Seemingly lazy flow curves into subtle currents & skills are tested as you seek passage under huge overhanging branches & skirt around fallen trees, negotiating the continually winding curves of this amazing little river.

Your interpretive Guide will help you explore the incredible flora & fauna while adding tales of Big Creek’s colourful cultural history. As a final piece of your journey your Guide will provide tips & directions to Ontario’s South Coast Craft Breweries that will match your tastes best. Each one has a character all its own.
