High Adventure is just that! Big waves, warm water, surfing and a delicious riverside lunch complement top-notch guides, equipment and scenery. 

Challenge the mighty Ottawa in a day or do as most Wilderness Tours guests--make it a vacation. Not only is WT the only true resort experience on the Ottawa River, it's also regarded as the nation's premier whitewater adventure resort. With WT's popular weekend or mid-week packages, combine one or two days of rafting with great food, fun off-river activities, cozy accommodations or scenic camping. Our weekend nightlife is - famously - just as wild as the rafting.  In short, it's time to experience Canada's best whitewater resort experience with WT. Give us a couple of days and we'll give you memories to last a lifetime.

Rapids are rated on a scale from 1-6 with 6 being the most difficult. High Adventure rafting challenges rapids rated 3-5 and our Gentle Adventure challenges rapids rated 1-3. A High Adventure experience is for anyone in good health with average swimming ability. Our High Adventure trips come standard with a 12 person raft and a friendly, professional guide. Returning rafters like to up the voltage by opting for a "Sport Raft". These are small 6 person rafts with a "formula one" guide to give you a memorable experience.

The minimum age for High Adventure programs is 12 (must be 90lbs or more) and the minimum age for Gentle Adventure is 6 years old (must be 50lbs or more). All pricing is per person.
