A step more adventurous than our Madawaska River Family Rafting trip: we are introducing Sportyaks – an inflatable double kayak to the Madawaska River. This 2-person inflatable kayak gives you the chance to paddle rapids on your own, that would normally take years of learning. You will receive a lesson on strokes, man-oeuvres and self-rescues before joining the raft trip on the second part of its journey. Your guide will accompany you in their kayak; leading you down the river. A great combination for groups that have more adventurous folk – as long as minimum 3 people sign up for the Sportyak option. Only available on a Mon, Tues or Wed.

Favorite Motorcycle stop! – Ride the Highlands is a popular route for motorcyclists. Sandwiched between Ottawa and Algonquin Park, Lake Ontario and Toronto; this network of hidden winding, paved and quiet roads brings out the ‘child’ in a biker. Add to this a 2-hour Rafting Trip down the Madawaska River at the Madawaska Kanu Centre, just south of Barry’s Bay and your day is complete.
"Please pass on my note to Jeremy. It was a cooler, damp day, and our 2 girls aged 4 and 6 wanted nothing to do with going rafting. However their tone improved when we arrived and once we were in the bus to the start they were more excited than they have been during our entire week at the cottage. Our Guide Jeremy was great! Especially with our kids, they laughed, and screamed the whole trip and now that we are back at home are already asking to do it again.See you next year!" The Holloway Family
