Madawaska Kanu Centre

Come Paddle with Us!

The Madawaska Kanu Centre provides personal instruction in whitewater kayaking and canoeing with weekend, week-long and two-hour “Zero to Hero” introductory courses available.

Renowned for its atmosphere, food, service and world-renowned instructors, MKC offers all the comforts of a European-style vacation resort.

Located on the Madawaska River, just outside of Algonquin Park, it is a great destination to enjoy a freshly roasted Madawaska Coffee or a Saturday night dinner at the Riverside Café.

The resort hosts art workshops, hiking and cycling tours in the fall.

During the summer, we offer two-hour Family Rafting Adventures for anyone age two and up!

The Ottawa Valley is renowned as the Whitewater Capital of Canada and home to some of the fastest, cleanest, warmest and safest rivers in all of Canada! Created from glacial retreats thousands of years ago, the Valley offers a unique blend of outdoor recreation and heritage combined with small-town charm.
