Moonlight Paddle – Guided

Looking for an awe-inspiring & slightly daring experience’ Paddle the beautiful Grand River, under the full moon. Guided by an expert paddler, float past the shadows and silhouettes of the breathtaking Grand River Carolinian Forest bathed in moonlight.

Paddling a river at night is an adventure few have experienced. Under the light of the full moon it is a safe yet awe-inspiring journey. A trip led by expert guides using 12-person voyageur canoes or rafts, that can also be done by more experienced paddlers in kayaks or traditional canoes.

Leaving from Paris at dusk, you enjoy the lights of Paris then float into twilight along the forest lined river on your journey to Brant Conservation Area.

In the quiet stillness of the evening the sounds of the river resonate across the moonlit water. As darkness falls, all other senses intensify & you experience a remarkable awareness of the night river around you. The gentle sound of each paddle stroke, the jumping of a nearby fish, croaking of frogs or sounds of animals on the nearby shore, reveal the life of a river like you’ve never experienced before. As the moon rises it’s incredible how much you see in the moonlight. If you are quiet you often witness sights like Great Horn Owls gliding through the mist on their nightly hunt. You’ll have lots to talk about, but probably feel a strange compulsion to just listen.
