Overview

This is a 6-day whitewater canoe trip for families in western Quebec. We've added a day to the trip to allow for a relaxed pace and lots of time for instruction and coaching. This 60-km Dumoine River for "Families" trip travels the lower two-thirds of the river - from Lac Benoit to the Ottawa River. We'll paddle about 30 sets of Class 1 to 3 rapids including, Big Steel, Canoe Eater, the Snake, Thread the Needle, and Red Pine.
At the beginning of the trip, the guides will provide basic paddling instruction and an introduction to whitewater skills. As we descend the river there will be ongoing coaching. There are optional portage trails if you choose to skip a particular rapid. When we set up camp at the end of the day, everyone pitches in to prepare exceptional meals. There will also be some time for swimming, fishing, and relaxing by the campfire. On the last day we'll cross the Ottawa River to our take-out point at the Pine Valley Campground near Stonecliffe. This is an excellent river expedition for families with some previous whitewater experience.
