Algonquin Park is home to one of the most spectacular and easily accessible white-water rivers in Canada; The Petawawa. Long considered a classic route for canoes, the Petawawa offers stunning scenery, deep gorges, the “Natch” campsite (the surrounding cliffs of which were the subject of a Tom Thomson painting) and frequent encounters with wildlife. The Petawawa cuts across the remote northeastern tip of the park and flows southeast towards its confluence with the Ottawa River. Our four day, fully guided canoe trip will take us from Lake Traverse to McManus Lake. This stretch of river offers class 1-3 whitewater which provides ideal opportunities to develope your whitewater skills. Unparalleled for its wildlife and scenery, the Petawawa River provides the best of Algonquin wilderness with a fun, challenging whitewater experience.
