In eastern Oxford County, the Upper Nith River meanders along dense palisades of trees, which cover sweeping valleys along the river. From high up a cheery palate of yellow blossoms contrast against tan-toned, clay slopes. In a sandbank just above water level, there is an impressive network of otter dens.
The course of the river ranges from calm and serene, to thrilling and challenging. With turbulent swifts and fast bends, this unique waterway is great for the seasoned paddler to refine their skills. Even if you are new at paddling rivers, our ‘Indiana Jones’, an expert Paddle Canada Certified guide, will arm you with a collection of skills. As you maneuver around river features, paddle through calm pools, swift waters, and under wrought iron bridges, it will feel like you’re rediscovering a land unknown to most.
After some great paddling enjoy a well-deserved break on a stone beach with a delicious riverside lunch, which includes our crowd pleasing Maple Chili. Your guide will share historic tales of past peoples, including epic First Nations battles and the infamous American outlaw whom this region concealed. They know specifically where these events occurred, and will be keen to show point of interest easily overlooked by the untrained eye.
