If you've ever thought of whitewater rafting... just do it! You will not regret, good workout and huge adrenaline rush and the guides are super fun. If you can, ask to ride in the front .

Amazing and friendly staff. All kinds of stuff to do on site. The rafting is a great experience mainly due to the great guides. Food was excellent. This was our 3rd time coming to Wilderness Tours and look forward to many more!

My 13 year old daughter and I had a fun, thrill filled week at Ottawa Kayak School this summer. Thanks to excellent instructors, we improved our kayaking skills, had fun, felt safe in the rolling white water, and want to do it again next year.

I had booked this trip to follow one to PEI. Unfortunately I returned from PE with poison ivy and was too late to cancel Whitewater. I'm glad I went along with my companion anyway. We camped and enjoyed the facilities which included live entertainment both evenings, although I couldn't participate there were a great many things to do for all... More
