Offering Simply the Best Grand River Experiences since 1999

The new canoes are in!


Heritage River has just received a shipment of Mad River Journey 156 canoes.

For the past 10 years Heritage River has used Mad River canoes in their rental fleet and though we have paddled about every canoe out there we have found Mad River canoes to be the best all round performers……being both comfortable to paddle and durable.  And everyone loves the rabbit smoking a pipe logo.

Mad River Canoe is known by the paddling community as making some of the best canoes on the market today.   Great for novice to advanced paddlers alike.

These new Mad River canoes are ready to use in our rental fleet and are perfect for that lazy float with your family and friends on the beautiful Grand River or make a splash through the rapids in the spring whitewater on the Nith River.

So be the first to christen one of these great new canoes!

Heritage River is now running guided and self- guided canoe, kayak and raft trips on both the Grand and Nith Rivers.  Please review our News and Articles section for spring Grand River paddling conditions updates.

Where else can a family of four take a near wilderness paddle for under $100.00

See you soon on the beautiful and historic Grand River, one of the most popular paddling destinations in the province of Ontario!

Heritage River Canoe & Kayak Company is centrally located between Toronto and London Ontario.
