5) How does the trip work?
We meet you at the start point, there are washrooms there. You are equipped with life-jackets, paddles, drinking water and given an orientation of how to paddle and the strokes used. Then down the river you go practicing what you have learned. Along the way are short teaching experiences on the valley. At the end of the trip there is a complimentary shuttle back upstream to your vehicle.
6) Are there lots of biting bugs?
The Grand River basically has almost no bugs while paddling in the day or the night on the water. If going on the hikes, you may wish to bring insect repellent, but the insect population is low in comparison to Northern Ontario.
