The Kipawa has been rated as one of eastern Canada’s best whitewater rafting rivers. This scenic and pristine river passes through rocky, Canadian Shield topography and through rugged, mixed-wood forests. The Kipawa River is an incredible 16 km run, from Lake Kipawa down to Lake Temiscaming, with 18 named rapids and a 90 foot waterfall.
Once a year, canoeists, kayakers and rafters alike join together for the Kipawa River Festival to celebrate this historic old river’s dramatic whitewater at the Kipawa River Festival. By joining this trip, you are adding your voice to help in its preservation. The Kipawa Day Trip includes a 4-5 hour descent, riverside snack and all safety equipment. After the trip, we celebrate the day with an ice cold beverage. The first round is on us!
