Heart of Ontario Whitewater Rafting Experience

Rafting is a great way to allow friends of all skill levels to participate in your trip, and our guide will ensure your safety as you paddle this fast moving, adventurous route. The rapids speak for themselves: Swift Alley, Devils Cave, Arrowhead, and Big Curve are all on your route. There is nothing like the thrill of whitewater, and experiencing it so close to home is unforgettable: a trip your group will remember for years ‘ even decades ‘ to come.

Early spring, high water turn South Ontario’s Nith River into the perfect whitewater destination. Milder class 1 ‘ 3 rapids cascading on a rare wilder section of river running thru Oxford & Brant Counties. Our experienced guides will put your group fully at ease, helping you paddle like a pro while regaling you with tales of the region’s rich natural & social history.

The Nith River basin is an area unspoiled by human development, and therefore rich with wildlife. White tailed deer, hawks, and beavers are all likely sightings along your route. Your guide will share the legends of the forests, from hiding outlaws to ancient Native battles. Enjoy a hot riverside lunch – cooked by us, of course ‘ featuring our delectable Maple Chili.
