Wild Whitewater Rafting for the Whole Family

Family fun in the water has never been this exhilarating. Join the whitewater rafting experts at OWL Rafting for a day of wild waves out on the Ottawa or Madawaska River. Choose from a 6-hour adventure on the Ottawa River, complete with a BBQ meal aboard a pontoon boat, or opt for the quicker 2-hour rapid experience on the Madawaska River. Both day trips are sure to take your breath away and provide laughter and excitement as you are propelled by the rapids and steer your way through the rapids.

Both the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers are located in the Upper Ottawa Valley. If you choose the Ottawa River excursion, you will find your family adventure approximately halfway between Pembroke and Renfrew, near the town of Beachburg. If you choose the Madawaska River, your trip will take place near Barry’s Bay. OWL Rafting also offers resort packages for you and your family to stay overnight in a tent or waterfront cabin.

Location: 40 OWL Lane, Foresters Falls

OWL combines an exciting whitewater trip down the Ottawa River with a delicious BBQ meal on the return Pontoon Cruise to the lakeside resort. Family, 1 & 2 Day Packages embark daily from May to September. 90 min from Ottawa. No experience necessary.
