Mysterious Nith River Expedition – 2-Day Paddle Excursion

The Nith River runs wild across South Central Ontario, providing a unique experience available only while seasonal rain brings the river to life. This rare 2-day guided trip offers a classic paddling adventure along a 50 km stretch of forested route, ranging from serene, gentle water, to exciting whitewater.


Meet and Greet at Grand Experiences Outdoor Adventure Company office at, 113 Grand River Street North, Paris, Ontario.

Your first day is on the Upper Nith, tranquil waters meandering thru miles of secluded forest. Skirting around the historic village of Ayr, the few signs of civilization are remains of a forgotten rural Ontario. Abandoned dams & interesting twists in the river add a little excitement, while old iron bridges provide background for some great story telling from your guide.

Your second day on the Lower Nith will have a different tone. As the elevation drops, features like Devil’s Cave and a series of mild rapids appear, creating a fantastic opportunity to use the skills you have developed. Your guide is experienced at providing customized instructional support, in order to master running the whitewater at the end of the adventure. Throughout this, scenery remains stunning, and the opportunities for wildlife sighting never stop.
