Grand River Rafting: Paris to Brant Park (Self-Guided)

Paris Trip… Our Longest Beginner Paddle!

The Paris to Brant Park trip is 13 km long (8 miles).

We do not recommend turbo tubing this route with seniors or children because the last mile of the trip requires paddling. In tubes this trip averages 5 hours.

The Grand River averages 1 meter in depth with 2 meter deep pools.

Many first time canoe, kayak, stand up paddle board clients prefer this route as it makes for a relaxing day or the perfect introduction.

The Paris to Brant Park route is a scenic paddle from a quaint town setting into a pristine wilderness.  The section has moving shallow rapids at 1 km mark and then easy going after that.

Some of the highlights are swimming areas and fresh spring water (if you drink the spring water, it is at your own risk, it has not been tested)

There are picnic stops and portable washrooms at the 9 km mark on this route.

The trip starts in the town of Paris, Ontario, which gives you access to stores and amenities right at the starting point.
