After outfitting you with bicycle & paddling gear, your experienced Guide leads you up the trail from Paris to the village of Glen Morris. Cycling along the riverside trail under a canopy or trees from the rare Carolinian Forest is a beautiful experience. Arriving in the Glen launch with your choice of canoe or kayak for a serene paddle down the Grand River back to Paris. Experiences like this is what Canada is all about
The adventure-filled Oneida run combines calm water with some swift water that makes for a little excitement, interspersed with leisurely paddling through scenic woodland. With the help of your Paddle Canada Expert Certified Guide, this trip is great for beginners as well as intermediate paddlers. Your trained and experienced guide will lead you through the beautiful Carolinian river ecosystem, showing you hidden wonders you never knew a river could offer. You’ll hear stories of the original inhabitants of the Grand River Valley and the later European settlement of the area. Shoot a fun, short class I rapid. Experience the surprising natural spring water flowing into the Grand & thread the needle at the teaching rocks. Before paddling into picturesque Paris, you’ll pass by the majestic ‘three sisters’, haunting remnants of the Early Railway Era that followed river travel in the formation of Canada.
