Kayaking Packages

Ontario’s abundance of clean, warm freshwater lakes and rivers provide world-class wilderness kayak touring as well as exceptional whitewater kayaking adventures for all skill levels.

For the best possible self-guided or guided experience, we suggest using a local expert outfitter who will provide specialized trip planning, high quality gear and exceptional tasty meals. Professional guides add much value by sharing their knowledge of wilderness kayak tripping, local history, ecology and more.

Popular locations for classic kayak touring adventures are Georgian Bay (easily accessible from Toronto) and the Thousand Islands National Park (close to Ottawa) – both located in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. If it is epic wilderness you are looking for, Lake Superior, the world’s largest freshwater lake, will challenge your body while replenishing your soul. Its rugged yet fragile nature makes it one of the most special places on earth.

Paddle along mammoth cliffs, see rare wildlife like woodland caribou, majestic bald eagles and more. Like the excitement of whitewater? Learn how to master the rapids at a whitewater kayak clinic on the Madawaska River or Ottawa River.
