Real gem of an experience, located just outside of Ottawa. My friends and I had a fabulous day on the rapids, and the evening entertainment / dinner afterwards was the perfect way to end the day. We look forward to coming back again! Special thanks to the RiverRun team for creating an exciting, fun and safe environment for us. We... More

Did the High adventure twelve man raft because I was too much of a chicken to do the six man! But the six man looked like a blast. If you like being thrown in the water every chance you get do the six man raft! Worth every penny! Excellent guides!

White water rafting is is a fun anywhere! We were a family of with 2 teenagers, we stayed at the London house which is a classy accommodation. He did have a kitchen attached, one should remember to take what they would like to cook and heat there. The dining options are limited. The rafting experience is fantastic, the guides are... More

We just returned from a fun few days at RiverRun Rafting. Four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed comfortably in the Little Trickle Cabin. Accommodations are basic but the cabin had a fan, heater and small fridge. Bathrooms were a short 2 or 3 minute walk away and the shower house was just a bit farther. Food was also... More

My family of four, including 50 year old birthday boy and sons 20 and 17 had never rafted before. It took rave reviews from our friends from Toronto to get us to book this extreme adventure in our own Ottawa backyard. With my husband's new birthday gadget fastened tightly to his helmet and with us all suited up for a... More

Neither of us had been rafting before, this was the best introduction to rafting we could have had! August 15-17 we had a girls weekend away, it was a 2 night tent stay and we were in the 6 person boat!! Bill was our guide and he is outstanding!! He explained what to do before each rapid so everyone knew... More

We went there as a group of 4 and the day couldn't have gone better. Although we booked separately they easily accommodated us so that we would be on the same raft. Our guide was super friendly and made an effort right from the beginning to learn all of our names and make us feel welcome. After just 2 rapids... More

What a blast we had! This was our first experience rafting, and I was a bit nervous about meeting the high-adrenaline needs of younger boys (10 & 14) and the safety-conscious needs of parents. I shouldn`t have worried! We stayed 2 nights at the resort, and while it needs some TLC, it was great to be on site, have the... More

We had a phenomenal time! We went early August and the water levels were a little lower but we still had tonnes of fun and lots of laughs. Our guide, AJ was awesome, and did a great job. The lunch was good, it was hot dogs, veggie burgers, chicken burgers, and different types of salads and cookies! It was pretty... More
