The Coulonge river flows through classic Canadian Shield scenery. From the river’s source in La Vérendrye Park to the confluence with the Ottawa River, it drops nearly 250m as it cascades over a series of thunderous waterfalls and wanders through runable, rock studded rapids.
Nearly 300 million years ago, fault lines scored huge channels deep into the rock as the earth cooled. The Coulonge River follows the path of one of these faults. During our two days (or 3) on the Coulonge, we will explore the section of river from Rapids Enrage to the Les Chutes Coulonge. Featuring ledge style drops with deep channel runs, the whitewater on the Coulonge River provides excellent opportunities for you to learn new skills and gain confidence canoeing class I-II rapids.
