RiverRun Rafting. An authentic Canadian adventure since 1980

Summer fun with RiverRun Rafting

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”.

My husband and I visited River Run last weekend to celebrate our 33rd anniversary.
We stayed 2 nights in the River Inn on site, rafted all day Saturday and left after breakfast on Sunday.
The entire experience was top notch! Our accommodation in the "Yellow Room" at the inn was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. The room had a lovely screened in porch surrounded by lush gardens that we thoroughly enjoyed.
The rafting experience surpassed any and all of my expectations! We did the Ultimate adventure package in the 6 person raft.
Our tour guide Martin was just exceptional. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. We sensed from the start that we were in very capable hands.
Martin was very safety conscious but adapted the ride and level of risk to the tolerance of our group . He explained everything we were going to do before we did it and always clarified what was expected of each of us. He was patient and had a great sense of humour.
The rafting was definitely a challenge - lots of paddling and plenty of swimming for a gal my age but overall it was totally exhilarating!
We really enjoyed with our raft mates too - it was fun going overboard with Clinton, Samantha, Annie and Sean!
Overall this was an excellent adventure that I'm so glad we signed up for.
Big thanks to Martin and all of the great staff at River Run for a very memorable experience.
