Go whitewater rafting

Learn about Ontario's top whitewater destinations.

If heart-racing adventure is your game, gear up to ride class III and class IV daredevil sections of Ottawa River called Hell’s Half Mile, Lemming’s Leap and Butcher’s Knife. Or if it’s calmer waters you seek, travel along the Madawaska River and quieter channels of the Ottawa River-  perfect for gentle family float trips. It's time to check WHITEWATER rafting off your bucket list.
