Grand River Canoe Trip ... Suggested Favorite
|CLICK TO BOOK NOW!|
Our Grand River canoe trip called the Oneida Route is an amazing wilderness paddle to try on the Grand River.
We shuttle you up to the village of Glen Morris... then you paddle using our river map 13kms back to your vehicle. This canoe trip has about 6-7 short sections of fast water, 1km in total. The trip takes about 3-3.5 hours pending river current speed.
This trip has no washrooms... so the biggest tree you can find. There are fresh water springs along the way and an island to stop for lunch. This trip also goes through the Three Sisters... the oldest rail bridge from the 1850's... looks like something out of Lord of the Rings! There is a lookout on the top of the Three Sisters, which you can hike to from the river.
The cost for this trip is $75.00 plus tax for two people, a 3rd person can be added for $10.00 plus tax. Price includes your canoe, paddles, life jackets, dry bags for your camera & phones, shuttle upstream to the start point and a river map to follow.
If 2 adults and 2 children you can upgrade from a 16ft to a 17ft canoe at no charge for more space.
If you wanted to do more than a 3 hour paddle, for another $15.00 you can shuttle 2 people further upstream to Cambridge for a 5 hour canoe trip back to Paris.

Canoeing the Grand River is a must do! In our area the river averages 1 meter in depth with a 2 km/hr current speed... so if you tip over, stand up! The wilderness landscape is filled with all types of birds... people find it hard to believe they are one hour from Toronto.
You need to make reservations by email or phone in advance... because we meet you where your trip starts.
It is important to recognize that the weather-news channels are about 20% accurate in their daily forecasting... we are around 85% accurate!
If the weather is bad, we will contact you telling you to save your money and not come. With our cancelation you can get a full refund or pick another date... whatever is best for you.
Also if water levels are what we consider unsafe to paddle... we will cancel our trips with the option to raft or go in a non-tip yak... your safety with us is more important than your money!
We are the only incorporated outfitter business on the river carrying full liability as required by the Grand River Conservation Authority.
We have risk management plans in place, adult waivers and youth consent forms... and our interpretive staff is top notch, undergoing a 3 week training course.
