Over the course of 50 years of providing adventure travel holidays, we have paddled and hiked thousands of kilometers with countless satisfied customers. We've learned how to make your trip very special. Over 70% of our clientele are returning participants! Join us this season for an incredible adventure - challenge yourself, make new friends, experience something new, laugh and create great memories.

Overview

Algonquin Park's Petawawa River is a wonderful run of Class 1 to 3 rapids. We'll start with river running and safety instruction at Lake Travers, then head 50 km downstream to McManus Lake. Rocky rapids such as Crooked Chute, Rollaway Rapids, and The Natch offer countless opportunities for excitement and challenge. With coaching and instruction from our excellent guides, your skills and confidence will grow throughout the expedition.
Flowing eastward across the more remote top of the park, the Petawawa combines Algonquin wilderness and a challenging whitewater experience. The earlier trip will find exciting high water, while August paddlers will enjoy a more relaxed river with warm water and lazy summer days. The Petawawa is an excellent shorter river trip for the paddler with some previous canoeing experience. An adventurous novice may also consider this trip as there are optional portage trails around the trickier rapids.
