I had good memories rafting with Wilderness many years ago. This time their expanded facilities are more convenient, clean and well maintained. Staff should be more coordinated and check correct information when advisiing guests. Good lively atmosphere for eveyone. I had a good time and will definitely go back again.

I visited Wilderness tours with a kayak team from New Zealand. I live in the best place in the World but I absolutely loved my time in Ontario and kayaking the Ottawa river with Wilderness Tours has been a big highlight in my life so far. A great couple of days at a great place with sensible quiet accommodation and... More

I went with a huge group of friends to go White Water Rafting, it was amazing. We all had an absolutely incredible time. I expected to eat hot dogs all weekend but the food was top notch-- we ate steak and chicken, etc. It's a great place to meet new people who share similar interests. Everyone there is super friendly.... More

The adventure rafting was wonderful, made even more so by a great guide named Ryan...he made it fabulous. We got to jump off a cliff, and surf in a place that isn't always there, we surfed for about 30 seconds at one point. Bring a waterproof camera and someone to take the pics for you. I tried the bungee jumping... More

My husband & I wanted to learn to Kayak, so we signed up for the 2 day beginners kayaking lessons at Wilderness Tours. There were 11 in our group and 2 amazing guides (Ryan and Katie) were given the daunting task to teach up. Let's point out that Ryan was the Canadian Whitewater Freestyle Team Coach (so he knows a...

We at Wilderness Tours and our Kayak School (Ottawa Kayak School) are over the top that you’ve found our facilities so enjoyable. We have passed your kind comments along to Ryan and Katie. We are truly blessed with absolutely wonderful staff, without them, Wilderness Tours wouldn’t be the amazing gem hidden in the Ottawa Valley that it is. Thanks again... More

I'm a single mom with three kids and sometimes it not easy to find things to do for my mix of daughter and boys, esp with age differences. This hit the mark! We had such a great time. We rafted for one day and enjoyed the facilities the next. The kids couldn't stop talking about what a great time this... More

If you are in for some adventure - sign up! This was a very well organized rafting tour. The Ottawa river provides the excitement and they provide the safety and expertise. Although faced with some serious rapids, at no time did I feel unsafe which let me enjoy the ride. I highly recommend wearing water shoes (or old sneakers) and... More

Had 3 nights at wilderness tours and loved it! Stayed in the log cabins which were clean and comfy. Did White water rafting on the first day which was just amazing fun. Well organised and just a great, action packed day. Did sea kayaking on the second day which I can't recommend highly enough. Fantastic guided tour around the beautiful... More

We had a group of seven...two adults, three teens, and two children. Everyone had a great time. Our guide...Adam Desjardins...was excellent, loves his job. Very engaging and good stories for young and old. We had a bilingual group and he catered to that easily. There were three boats in our trip which allowed for being able to body surf etc...longer....
