Grand Overnight Adventure One Night Hotel Package Experience

An authentic experience led by knowledgeable professional guides. Discover the Canadian Heritage River’s rich cultural history & rare Carolinian forests. South Ontario’s largest river, just an hour west of Toronto.

Guided canoe / kayak adventure on the Grand River in the Heart of Ontario with overnight accommodations at the Best Western Brantford.

One of the best routes, the Cayuga, departs from private docks at our 145-year-old Outfitters shop on the banks of the Grand River in Paris, Ontario. See the unique riverside architecture as you paddle thru the heart of one of Canada’s prettiest Towns. As your guide tells the stories behind the scenery you’ll have a true Cultural experience as the river comes alive with their legends of Settlement and Aboriginal history.

Leaving town you paddle into the Carolinian Forest, experiencing Canada’s most bio-diverse region with hundreds of species of fish, birds and plants, including 400 rare plants & animals. Your interpretative guide will identify Carolinian Trees from Sycamores to towering Cottonwood & help you spot great blue herons, osprey and an occasional bald eagle.

The Grand River here is a relaxing paddle with calm currents to move you along, plus dashes of small swifts to keep your interest piqued. All of our guides are Paddle Canada certified, many at instructor levels and can coach you on paddling skills.

Along the route discover old abandoned gypsum mines at Mile Hill to learn about a miners life in early 1800’s Canadian Wilderness & how Paris got its name. Then taste the refreshing, natural cold Spring water flowing from the hillside to revitalize the river and you.

Deepen the experience hiking into the Carolinian Forest on the Trail of the White Cedar. Find rare species like Shag Bark Hickory hiking to a scenic lookout over the valley. Your interpretative guide will introduce you to a world thought long past and help you picture the Native tribe that frequented those same paths 400 years ago.

Paddle on to where the Grand meets a spring-fed creek, famous across North America for trout fishing and learn the Native legend of Whiteman’s Creek. Your guide will share many more authentic experiences along this unique adventure before arriving at Grand Experiences’ landing in Brant Conservation Area. After landing you are off to your comfortable overnight accommodations at the Best Western Brantford.

Our Shuttle service brings you back to parking in Paris, where you can finish your adventure with the Apr’s Paddle at one of Paris’ many restaurants and cafes,  most with riverside dining and great views of the river. Paris is the Apr’s Paddle capital of the Heart of Ontario.
