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.
