Grand River Experience

4 hr Guided Trip

Picture yourself in of the pretty little town of Paris ‘ not browsing through shops but breezing downriver. This experience ushers you from sweltering sidewalks to the scenic route of summer on an awe-inspiring adventure through the grandest views of Southern Ontario.

Your group launches from our 145-year-old outfitter location. Instructions have been given, supplies have been stowed, and now the picturesque architecture of Paris starts to sweep by. The first bend quickly carries our canoes away from the downtown and into the heart of Canada’s rare Carolinian forest. Lofty trees spread their limbs in welcome. Untrodden trails invite us into the undergrowth. This incredibly bio-diverse landscape comes alive as legends and creatures burst from the banks. The narrative of First Nations is hidden in these river reeds and forest floors ‘ your guides are quick to find them out. There’s a story behind every scene and innumerable sights to drink in. As you traverse this winding way your Paddle Canada certified guides lead with experience and authenticity. Gypsum tunnels of Mile Hill call out to the inner explorer ‘ miners of the 1800s dug them deep. The Trail of the White Cedar leads us up to a breath-taking lookout over the valley. These are the same paths that indigenous people walked 400 years ago. A clear creek carries clear cold water into the current. This is where relaxation meets rejuvenation. As Whiteman’s Creek tells a mysterious tale the water whisks us to our journey’s end. What will you see around the Grand’s next bend’
