Our fully guided rafting trips, on both channels of the world famous Rocher Fendu rapids of the Ottawa River, range from the gentle Class I – II rapids to the adrenaline rush of Class III – V rapids.

Get ready for excitement and high adventure whitewater rafting in a traditional 12 person big boat. We run challenging lines with these bigger boats and you’re sure to get wet and have a great time. These bigger rafts are perfect for those new to the sport, bigger groups and younger children.

Families with kids 13 years of age (must weigh at least 90 lbs.) and older can enjoy the full river experience “High Adventure Whitewater Rafting“ style too.

Ultimate Adventure and Sport Rafting

Our 6-passenger sport rafting is the “in-your-face, up-your-nose” whitewater adventure. These lightweight sport rafts are more maneuverable and can maximize each and every rapid on the river. Our highly trained and entertaining guides will take you and your friends into whitewater as you dreamed it would be!

With gentle whitewater on the middle channel, the famous Rocher Fendu section of the Ottawa River, offering 12-kilometers of gentle rapids, isolated islands and spectacular waterfalls.

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.
