We signed up for the High Adventure trip for the August long weekend. It was a fairly easy booking process because their website has a live chat service. I did however called them the first time to enquire. I wanted to compare the packages with Owl Rafting's, where I first rafted over 10 years ago. It turned out that the... More

We returned to Wilderness Tours for the second time two weeks ago and once again we were not disappointed. It was fantastic! We had the opportunity to switch from a 12 man raft to a 4 man (with a guide) and that is where the excitement started and continued throughout the entire day. We cannot say enough about our guide...

The day we chose to white water raft turned out to be the rainiest day this summer, despite of which, we had an adventure-filled ridiculously amazing time. We got to the camp site late at night, as we drove in from Toronto after work Thursday night. There was someone to meet us at the campsite, and show us our cabin.... More

We went on the family adventure with our two boys ages 11 and 14. Everyone had a great time! Lots of jokes and boat to boat water fights. Body surfing was awesome! We also saw quite a bit of wildlife including osprey, a water snake, and a family of merganzers along the way. Thanks to our guide Wil M.

I recently went to Wilderness Tours with my husband, ten month old baby and our nanny. My husband and I took separate courses in the Ottawa Kayak School. We had such an amazing experience that we rearranged our entire schedule the following week to be able to come back. The factor that contributed the most to our extremely positive experience...

We loved our family rafting trip. The location is gorgeous, the schedule is great, the organization is super. We did waivers on line, had the right gear and arrived about 40 min early. Got over warned so chickened out of bringing our waterproof camera. We should have taken it. Thanks for getting us to take the kids complimentary wetsuit jacket.... More

Dear sir or madam,        Please accept my apology for not taking the time to fill out the comment card.  We were exhausted but super stoked and unbelievably happy with our trip down the river.  Our kids were just beside themselves with excitement and they are already counting the days until next year when we get to go back. ...

We took the 1 day high adventoure tour. Check in at reception went smoothly. Suggest you do your waiver online so that you aren't taking up time when you get there filling out the paperwork. You then wait a bit before you see a promo video of the tour and they provide you with some "do"s" and "don'ts". Wear dri-quick... More

1 day - High-Adventure Rafting. If you're looking for a little adventure and you are NOT an adrenaline junkie, find out what the water level is before you book your adventure. Because these are real white water rapids which are caused by water flowing over and around rocks, the river's water level directly impacts the type of adventure you will... More
