Overview

Ontario's French River flows from Lake Nipissing to Georgian Bay, cutting through some of the most spectacular Canadian Shield landscape in the area. It is one of Canada's Heritage Rivers and was travelled in bygone years by the explorers that opened up our land, and by the voyageurs as they transported furs and goods in their birchbark freight canoes.
In recognition of its natural, historical, and recreational value, the French River received official status as a provincial waterway park in 1989. On this 4-day trip, we paddle the most scenic section of the French - starting at Wolseley Bay and finishing at Highway 69. The river has excellent campsites, clear water, and beautiful Canadian Shield scenery. With some fun and fairly-easy rapids, there are lots of opportunities to learn and practice whitewater canoeing skills. There is also time for photography, swimming, and enjoying this beautiful natural setting. We'll camp each evening at new site - on rocky shelves and points. Everyone gathers around the fire to prepare exceptional meals with the guides and to laugh about the day's adventures with new friends. No previous experience is required to enjoy this wilderness getaway.
