4-Hour Guided Trip
A great Canadian adventure on a Canadian Heritage River with scenic forests. Located in the heart of southern Ontario, just an hour west of Toronto. Float on 8 person rafts led by an experienced River Guide, along the Grand River. This day trip adventure launches from private docks at our 140 year old Outfitters shop in historic Paris and travels downstream to Brant Conservation Area, one of Southern Ontario’s largest Conservation Areas. Unbelievable natural experience close to home. Your best outdoor adventure ever.
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 forest lining the banks of the Grand. Experience the Grand as First Nations people saw it hundreds 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 lands at Brant Conservation Area, one of the largest natural areas in Southern Ontario, with hundreds of hectares of Conservation area covered with forest and grasslands. After you land, our shuttle service transports you back to your vehicle parking in Paris.
