This trip, organized by Grand Experiences in co-operation with the Royal Botanical Gardens was fun entertaining and instructional. We paddled in a large canoe around Coot's Paradise (aptly named) lake, which we accessed from the Botanical Gardens grounds. A member of the gardens staff gave us a commentary covering the history, wildlife, ecology and conservation efforts in the area. The... More

You can step back in time and imagine your going down the river 100 years ago, just you the water, the trees on both shores and wild life. Great time and experience.

My best friend and I booked a two day hiking excursion with Grand Experiences and it turned out to be great! Even with one day of rain - there was no way it dampened the experience. Jamie Kent is the owner and he, personally, guided us on this two day hike. We saw waterfalls and scenery we didn't know existed... More

Great for families with young kids. Grand Experiences staff were super friendly at the storefront location and while getting driven up river.... More

23 Outdoor Enthusiasts from Mocwa Meetup group enjoyed a fun and invigorating day paddling downstream on The Grand River. Our guides were attentive and skilled, we saw deer, blue herons and beautiful fall colours. The waters were high and fast, as novice paddlers we safely navigated the challenge through the rapids. We are looking forward to going again in the... More
