“Fantastic trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 20 July 2014

I went into this thinking the ride would be a pretty passive experience -- I've always been a little disdainful of rafts, with tourists crammed in like sardines. In fact, this was a real whitewater experience, letting someone like me, who isn't a good enough paddler to kayak big rapids on my own, experience big drops and powerful currents. Our guide was phenomenal -- unbelievable how they can control those huge clunky boats! -- and the Ottawa River is an incredible place. Our accommodations were quite lovely, though I guess it might have been nice to have a slightly more festive atmosphere at the main pavilion, which felt sort of empty.

But overall this is a fantastic place, with great guides and an amazing trip. Better than I could have imagined!
