Do you have to go rafting to come to Wilderness Tours?
You don’t have to raft to join your friends or family for a whitewater rafting adventure. Just reserve a non-rafting program or our resort day to enjoy Canada’s top adventure resort with its water park, nightly entertainment, hiking trails, good food and more. You’ll do everything expect for whitewater raft, and there is a lot to do!  

DAY 1 | ARRIVAL & CHECK-IN
We recommend arriving 45 minutes before your Pre-Trip Briefing time. Your briefing time can be found in your reservation information. Arriving with enough time before your trip will ensure that you can get prepared for your trip at a comfortable speed. Our trip briefings operate ON-TIME. Shuttles for trips generally depart 30 minutes after the pre-trip briefing time.

DRESS FOR RAFTING
You will need to wear footwear that will stay securely on your feet (NO FLIP-FLOPS, NO CROCS, ETC).
You will also want to dress according to the weather. Our trips operate RAIN OR SHINE. Regular swim-wear is good. If you get cold easily we recommend you wear a wet suit. Bring your own or rent one of ours. Please note: cotton t-shirts and sweaters will actually make you COLDER. We recommend wearing synthetic materials for sun protection; wool or neoprene for thermal insulation; rain jacket outer shell for wind protection.

PRE-TRIP BRIEFING
It’s time to meet your trip leader for the day. They will explain what to bring, what to wear, health and safety considerations, and the schedule for the day. This meeting usually lasts 10-12 minutes. This is a great time also to ask any last minute questions before you depart for the river. After the pre-trip briefing is complete you will have a few final minutes to make any last-minute adjustments with how you are dressed or also make any last visits to the restrooms.

SHUTTLE BUS TO TOP OF RAPIDS
Our transportation service shuttles your group from the Park Village 9KM up-river to the “put-in”, where your rafts and guides are waiting. This is a one-way shuttle as you will be rafting all the way back to Wilderness Tours Rafting Resort. None of your belongings should be left on the bus.

MEET YOUR GUIDE + SAFETY TALK
Wilderness Tours pioneered whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River in 1975, our guides have the most experience as we’ve been setting the standard for whitewater in Canada going into our 5th decade. We have your safety in mind first in everything we do. Your trip leader will explain all of your equipment and safety procedures for the day.

RAFTING TIME!
You’ll face many rapids on your journey down the river. The rapids you descend and the specific lines your guide chooses will depend on the river conditions of the day. The beauty of the Ottawa River is that at every water level, there’s an exciting and appropriate route to take!

SNACK STOP
Our trip stops half way down the river. At this stop, you will get the chance to have a quick snack, relax, enjoy the beautiful views of the river, and use the restroom.

MORE WHITEWATER RAFTING!
The second half of the trip holds many more exciting rapids! Depending on the specific water levels, your guides will also show you some exciting extra activities such as raft surfing, cliff jumping, and/or body surfing.

LAZY RIVER SWIM
The final stretch of the river before arriving back at Wilderness Tours Rafting Resort is a perfect lazy river swim. When your guide says it’s safe to do so, hop out of the raft and enjoy the relaxing ride!

YOUR ARRIVAL BACK TO PARK VILLAGE
The currents slow down just in time for you to catch the right-hand turn into the bay at Wilderness Tours Rafting Resort. Your guides will instruct you on the end-of-trip procedures such as gear returns, post-trip media viewings, use of the beachfront, resort amenities, and evening entertainment options.

DAY 2 | GUIDE YOUR OWN RAFTING!
This package come standard with our exclusive Guide Your Own Raft trip on the second day. Or, you have the option to upgrade to either the Sport Rafting Day Trip or a Sport Yak Day Trip to increase the intensity level!
