A shared appreciation for whitewater and the limitless beauty of Canada's Ottawa River inspired us to create the finest adventure resort in Canada. Located just east of world famous Algonquin Park, the mighty Ottawa is Canada's most popular rafting and kayaking river. Our mission - since 1975 - has been to provide the best whitewater rafting experience in Canada. A million+ guests have told us we're succeeding and the Globe & Mail recently named Wilderness Tours, "Top dog on the Ottawa River."
As we enter our 38th year, we recommit ourselves to providing an unparalleled guest experience. From corporate retreat getaways and unforgettable family adventures to high-water excitement and raucous event weekends, Wilderness Tours is - unquestionably - best in class. Now, as in 1975, we look forward to sharing the magic found in whitewater.
YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT TO ENJOYING THE OTTAWA RIVER IN BEAUTIFUL ONTARIO
As Canada's top river company and rafting pioneer, over three decades of experience is your guarantee of a quality and professional experience. WT is a founding member of the Canada River Council, dedicated to safe, professional rafting. You'll find the best equipment including self-bailing MARAVIA rafts, chosen to supply the famous river movie, RIVER WILD. We use professional river running helmets and comfortable harness type PFDs. Our guides are simply the best in the business. They are all First Aid, CPR and SRT (Swiftwater Rescue Technician) qualified. Equally important, WT guides are friendly, informative and live our mission of sharing the magic found in whitewater through teamwork and team building with our guests.
Finally, we are committed to the preservation of the last wild section of the Ottawa River, the Rocher-Fendu. To date we have singlehandedly placed almost 5,000 acres into the WT LAND TRUST. We call it "Living with Champlain's Ghost." Every spare dollar we make adds to the Land Trust.
Thank you for your support.
