Located just 90 minutes from Algonquin Park and 80 minutes from Ottawa, in the town of Eganville Ontario, lies the Bonnechere Caves.
Under a hill of limestone, said by geologists to have been the bottom of a tropical sea 500 million years ago, the Caves present a weird and wonderful sight. Stalactites, or rock icicles formed at the rate of one cubic inch in 150 years, hang from the ceiling and the handiwork of nature is enhanced by electric lights. Feel free to bring along your own flashlight and comb our walls and see the literally thousands of fossils that are embedded in our limestone walls. Entombed in the rock and preserved forever can be seen fossils of coral and sea creatures alive long before the age of the Dinosaurs. Millions of years in the making, the Bonnechere Caves are a thrill for the sightseer.
We just returned from a fun few days at RiverRun Rafting. Four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed comfortably in the Little Trickle Cabin. Accommodations are basic but the cabin had a fan, heater and small fridge. Bathrooms were a short 2 or 3 minute walk away and the shower house was just a bit farther. Food was also basic but was flavorful and kept us full. We also brought plenty of snacks and stuff to make sandwiches so we were never hungry.
Our rafting trip was lead by Cara who is very nice. She made a point to get to know everyone in our raft and asked basic personal questions which was very nice. She ensured that we know how to manage the raft and to follow her instructions. She kept the trip fun, safe and informative while pointing out local wildlife features and other landmarks. It was a very fun memorable day on the river.
I recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking about trying white water rafting. My 8 year old son summed it up best by saying "So the big question is, same time next year?".
Thanks RiverRun Rafting for a fun family vacation!
