Nith River Instructional Whitewater Experiential Learning Adventure

Adventure on Southern Ontario’s Nith River, in Spring high waters. Take your paddling to the next level with the help of our experienced and competent instructors.

The Nith is an ideal river to learn on, and we have devised a route that sees you through progressively more challenging waters, culminating in a series of mild rapids that will test your skills. Our instructors will start by teaching power, steering, and brace strokes.

After an on-river morning of basic techniques, enjoy a hot riverside lunch at Viking Beach, including our famous Maple Chili. After lunch, continue developing your skills by navigating Swift Alley, the deceptive currents of Devil’s Cave, and the Level 1 and 2 rapids of Arrowhead, Big Curve, and Penman’s Pass.
