Rafting Momentum

Word from the GM

“Thank you for considering us among your choices of whitewater adventure / vacation destinations. Know that for us, Rafting is not only a party on the river but also a party at the end of the evening where friends, adrenaline and humour are gathering! For us, Rafting is THE best way to celebrate our friendships. Because when we plan on such a day, we want to call those we see often and those we would like to see more often.

Why choose us? Apart from our philosophy: "Our place is yours!" and the fact that we take our time on the river, let me list a few factors that we think are important.”

Philippe OuelletteDirecteur général

Rafting in Canada

Ottawa River

First, the Ottawa River is the best rafting river in Canada! It offers a “2 for 1”; it splits into two main channels and each one runs alongside each other and offers very high quality rapids. When the water is high, we take the “Middle” section as it offers more rapids. When the water goes down, we take the “Main” one because it becomes the most interesting Rafting option.

When the water level is in between and we are unsure of the best option… well, we take both channels! By the way, we are the only company on the river that acts this way 😉


The Ottawa River, for the regions of Ottawa / Gatineau and... Toronto

1h from Ottawa, 4h24 from Toronto

The Ottawa River is the river that never disappoints and always offers a more than interesting alternatives. It is internationally known for its white water! It can accommodate international calibre Rafting and Whitewater Kayaking competitions. In 2015, the biggest whitewater kayaking competition took place at one of our finest rapids. Stands have been set up on the shore and thousands of people have seen the sport’s greatest athletes surpass themselves.

It has classes 3 to 5 rapids at all times.

In addition, did you know that this river is not afraid of drought and flooding? Due to its size and incredibly high volume, this river offers quality Rafting whether it’s a rainy spring or a dry summer.

And all this close to your home! This jewel of constant waves is 4:30 from the Toronto River Rafting enthusiasts and one hour from the Ottawa and Gatineau area. 100 km from downtown Ottawa to be more precise. What makes us the closest Rafting destination to the National Capital. Take route 148 on the Quebec side, it offers breathtaking landscapes! Rafting as you like, close to downtown Gatineau and Ottawa.
