Whitewater Rafting

Whether you are a first time rafter or a whitewater enthusiast you will find it all right here at RiverRun Rafting and Wilderness Resort. 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.

High Adventure Rafting

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 11 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!

Family Rafting & Heritage River Tour

From 5 to 85 years, this family style raft trip is great fun for adults as well as a wonderful experience for children. 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.

“Family Rafting Fun!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 October 2014

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!
