Whitewater Adventures

The Ottawa Valley - The Whitewater Capital of Canada

Known as the Whitewater Capital of Canada, the area is home to some of the fastest, cleanest, warmest and safest rivers in the country - perfect for serious kayak, canoe or rafting action.

You'll find rivers for all seasons and skill levels - the Ottawa, Madawaska, Bonnechere, Petawawa, Opeongo, Dumoine, Barron, Mattawa, Coulonge, Noire, Papineau Creek, York, Grant's Creek and more.Rivers flow from March to the end of November making for a long paddling season.

Each year the Ottawa Valley hosts a variety of international, national and provincial kayaking and canoeing championships, festivals and paddling events.

Want to master your J-stroke? The Valley is also home to Canada's best paddling schools - kayak, canoe or raft.

Several seasoned outfitters offer a variety of guided packages from screamin' high-adventure rafting to gentle family float-trips, sea kayaking and sport-yaking, canoe clinics, slalom racing and whitewater rodeos.

If racing down a Class III, IV or V rapid is not your style, then slow down and relax as you glide across one of the area's 900 lakes. Be sure to pack your camera as the photo opps are endless.
