Thrill seekers and daredevils will be in their element at Wilderness Tours, Canada’s largest whitewater rafting and adventure resort. This 240+ hectare adventure playground is located on the shores of the Ottawa River, about an hour’s drive west of Ottawa and only 15 minutes from the town of Forester Falls.
The facility is strategically positioned to take full advantage of the whitewater action on the nearby stretches of the river. The mighty Ottawa River is known as one of the world’s best waterways for whitewater adventure. Gentle currents quickly escalate into adrenaline-pumping class III and IV swells and rapids, including the steep, 5 metre waterfall in the Middle Channel.
With rough sections of the river called the Butcher’s Knife, the Bus Eater, Hell’s Half Mile and the White Faced Monster, you know you’re in for a wild ride.
A variety of fully outfitted water based adventures are offered, depending on your skill and comfort level. Choose from a guided high adventure or gentle rafting trip in 12-person rafts. Expect flips, tips and dunks on the 7 person or 2 person sport rafts or set out solo in a compact whitewater kayak.
A range of accommodations are available to suit every group and budget. In between rafting on the river, hit the trails on a mountain bike or work up a sweat on the sports courts. If relaxing is more your speed, chill on the sandy beach, soak in one of the hot tubs or lounge in the new timber sauna, repurposed from a 150-year-old timber cabin.
