Custom Trips

Bring out your group for an experience in nature—on a world class river

Whether you’d like a private departure of one of our classic river rafting or packrafting programs, a whitewater canoe camping trip, or a completely custom itinerary—the planning process will be smooth and the results incredible.

Our flagship trip is the 9-day Magpie River Expedition in Quebec—one of National Geographic’s top multi-day rafting rivers—where your group will explore pristine wilderness and world class whitewater.

From the Nahanni River (“The Grand Canyon of the North”) in Canada’s Northwest Territories to the turquoise rivers of Patagonia…

…from high-adventure packrafting expeditions with built-in training and certification, to family-friendly adventures with expert interpretive guides—one thing remains constant: we’ll get you and your group there, each and every time, and you’ll experience an incredible custom trip.

Who are custom trips for?

Experiential education for students and youth

Give your students the greatest opportunity to bond and grow. They’ll be challenged to step out of their comfort zones and connect with themselves, each other, and the natural world.

Custom experiential learning trips run from 3-days to 3-weeks and beyond. Our experiential education programs range from high-school credit summer canoe trips with Indigenous youth to the August to September 3-day & 4-day Gatineau River Rafting Expedition

Adventure training for military groups and specialized teams

Combine your expedition with certification and elite-level training in whitewater and swiftwater rescue, river running, and backcountry skills.

Families and friends

Give your family and friends the trip of a lifetime. Whether you have an active group who wants to push every day, or you’d like a more relaxed pace with optional activities, we can accommodate paddlers of all ages and provide a perfectly paced trip.

Team building and retreats for companies and NGO’s

Time in the wilderness gives your team members a chance to truly connect with each other, away from distractions. Whether you want a purely fun team building getaway, or a learning and problem solving retreat—we’ll design an all-inclusive custom trip based on your goals.

Researchers and media production teams

If you’re surveying and need support or you’re looking for that perfect shot for Planet Earth III, we’ve got you covered. We provide air tight logistics and full service outfitting for researchers and film crews.

Paddling clubs and experienced paddlers—on the Magpie River

The Magpie is a perfect multi-day trip for intermediate and advanced kayakers and canoeists. It offers tons of great whitewater, untouched wilderness, and spectacular scenery.

Whether you want to go raft-supported or fully self-supported in kayaks, we work with groups, paddling schools, and clubs to run smooth and fun expeditions—with our experienced professional guides, local knowledge, and attention to detail.
