Spend a night beach-side at our campsite, with the option of RV campsite or cabin. The next day, experience the dynamic waters of Canada’s legendary Ottawa River in a guided white water raft tour. Get your feet wet as you splash and roll through one of the world’s great whitewater routes. OWL Rafting is a three generation family-run resort, renowned for its attention to detail, exceptional service, and locally-sourced cuisine. This will provide you with the ultimate ‘Canadian’ vacation.
Adventure Rafting (medium intensity):
Day 1: Arrive in the afternoon. Get ready for an exciting whitewater rafting trip. Join others for your trip briefing, gear up and climb aboard the OWL bus for a short transfer to the ‘put-in’, the start of your river day. You’ll be met by your guide to practice paddle strokes in preparation for the rapids ahead. Descend the legendary 12km of whitewater on the mighty Ottawa, charging through meter-high waves. Stop for a snack, body-surfing, or cliff-jumping along the route.
At rapids’ end you board the Pontoon boat for a hearty hot barbequed meal on the return cruise to the resort.
Back at the resort settle into our campsite/cabin before relaxing by the waterside campfire.
Day 2: Breakfast is buffet-style on the lakeside patio to build your energy for the day.
Relive your day’s adventure by watching a video of your trip in the pavilion. Before you depart, enjoy a sauna, a hot outdoor shower, go for a swim from our sandy beach, or take a canoe out on the lake.
All participants must weigh at least 41 kg (90 lbs).
