Algonquin Park Packrafting

Get off the grid and into the wild—on the Upper Petawawa and Ottawa River – 7 days

This packrafting trip is a high adventure, small group journey.

You’ll explore beautiful backcountry and paddle incredible rivers.

You don’t need any river experience: just a love of adventure and good enough physical conditioning for big days outside—hiking and paddling.

This is one of the best trips you can ever do to recharge for a week, away from your busy job, and have an experience in nature—far from a cliché trip.

You’ll be taken care of by your experienced guides—and you’ll learn whitewater river running skills and safety.

On this trip you will:

  • Explore Algonquin Park on a lightweight backcountry expedition
  • Hike to the park’s deepest lake—and trek rarely travelled terrain
  • Learn whitewater paddling, river running, and safety skills
  • Paddle two of Ontario’s best and most fun whitewater rivers: the Upper Petawawa and Ottawa River

The best part is you don’t need to do much planning. We meet in Forester’s Falls, Ontario (4h30mins from Toronto) on day-1—or we’ll pick you up in Ottawa—and we’ve got everything covered from there.

So dive into a week of action-packed days, and enjoying the water, rocks, forest, and fresh air—on an incredible river adventure.
