Overview

The Noire is a beautiful, Quebec whitewater river - flowing from its headwaters below La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve, south to the Ottawa River near Pembroke. Less well-known and travelled than other rivers in the area, the Noire has the longest distance of runnable whitewater, the shortest distance that must be portaged, the best chance of seeing wildlife, and the smallest possibility of encountering other paddlers.
We meet at the take-out point and drive by van over logging roads to the most exciting part of the river - a 75-km downstream run. With lots of Class 1, 2, and some optional Class 3 rapids, it is an opportunity to learn new skills with the help of your Black Feather guides. 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. The "Noire River for Families" trip is an enjoyable holiday for those with previous canoeing experience. Basic whitewater skills are advisable, but an adventurous novice could do this trip. This is the same route as our 5-day trip, but with an additional day for a relaxed pace and extra instruction. The Noire is suitable for families with school-aged children.
