Deep inside all of us is a wanderer. It’s the little voice that tells us to follow our own path, trust in ourselves and embrace the unknown. Follow that voice to Ontario’s Highlands, a place where your imagination and authentic sense of discovery are the only compass you need.

Tackle the Ottawa River rapids with a choice of several rafting, kayaking and canoeing outfitters such as OWL Rafting and the Madawaska Kanu Centre. Visit Champlain Trail Museum for more on the story of Champlain.
