RiverRun Rafting. World Class!

On Earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.

Each year, more people return to RiverRun Rafting and Wilderness Resort to experience the incredible thrill of whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River. Now RiverRun has been selected as an Ontario Signature Experience by the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation to signify an exceptional travel experience in Canada. Authentic and immersive showcasing the natural beauty of this part of Ontario, this is an adventure for people wanting to live a life less ordinary. 

Choose between our traditional 12-passenger whitewater rafts and our exclusive 6-passenger sport rafts – on any trip. RiverRun Rafting offers large groups the opportunity to customize trip times.

Start and end your rafting adventure at our beautiful 165-acre resort – located just below the last major set of rapids.  No bus rides or boat tows back to your dry clothes.  The hot showers, sauna and our welcoming pavilion is just a short walk away. Ottawa River Provincial Park is next to us and is only a short drive from the World Famous “Algonquin Park”.

Big Rafts & High Adventure

Our most popular raft trip is our 12 passenger High-Adventure Raft Trip. This big raft offers lots of whitewater fun and is perfect for first-timers, groups and families…a little more raft and a great Canadian experience!

Sport Rafts & Ultimate Adventure

RiverRun pioneered the sport raft program on the Ottawa River over 20 years ago and we can confidently say “we do it best”. Our rafts are custom made for us by Sotar. Lighter in weight and with extra cross tubes, allowing you and our guides the maximum fun and experience available in whitewater!

Family Rafting & Heritage Tour

For the young and “young at heart”, join us for this gentle water raft trip on the Middle Channel of the river. With just enough whitewater to make it fun there’s plenty to see and learn about this historical river.

5 of 5 starsReviewed 10 August 2014

"Had a BLAST. Great day out on the water. Weather was incredible. Guides were top notch - I was really impressed. They were super fun, friendly, relaxed, experienced and qualified. I was also impressed by how seriously they took the safety of the guests. I never felt uncomfortable during our trip down the river or unsure of their expertise. The venue itself was also good. To all you whiners, if you're expecting a 5 star resort, you've come to the wrong place. This is an outdoor adventure company, not a spa! The campground was great - clean with nice soft grass for pitching your tent, trees for shade and close to the amenities. Although cafeteria style, the food was pretty good. I really had no complaints (and I'm super picky). Was it gourmet? No. But again, if that's what you're there for, you're in the wrong place. There was a rocking bon fire the night we were there with live entertainment. I believe his name was Up River (stream?) Dave, and he was fan-freakin-tastic. Knew just about every song on the planet and really got the crowd involved. At one point, I'm pretty sure the the entire campground was dancing around the bon fire, staff and all. Speaking of staff, they were great too. Friendly and helpful and always available. Overall I had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this company. Cant wait to visit again next year! Thanks River Run!!!!"
