RiverRun Wilderness Resort is located 1 hour from Ottawa and 5 hours east of Toronto in the Ottawa Valley. The “Valley” as it’s called by the locals stretches from Ottawa, our Canadian capital city, westward to Ontario’s world-renowned Algonquin Park. More than half the valley (over 6 million acres) is spectacular wilderness and the setting for your visit to RiverRun on the Ottawa River.
Hiking enthusiasts can explore the rugged beauty of our resort property on our groomed trails system and includes EXCLUSIVE ACCESS FOR OUR GUESTS TO THE OTTAWA RIVER PROVINCIAL PARK. This 125 acre park adjoins the RiverRun Resort with hiking trails throughout old growth forests and spectacular views of the Ottawa River.
