Big Rafts & High Adventure

Our most popular raft trip is our 12 passenger High-Adventure Whitewater Raft Trip. This big raft offers lots of whitewater fun and is perfect for first-timers, groups and families…a little more raft and a great Canadian experience!

Sport Rafts & Ultimate Adventure

River Run pioneered the sport raft program on the Ottawa River over 20 years ago and we can confidently say “we do it best”. Our rafts are custom made for us by Sotar. Lighter in weight and with extra cross tubes, allowing you and our guides the maximum fun and experience available in whitewater!

Family Rafting

For the young and “young at heart”, join us for this gentlewhite water rafting trip on the Middle Channel of the river. With just enough whitewater to make it fun there’s plenty to see and learn about this historical river.

Our Resort & Accommodations

With over 4000 feet of beautiful shoreline on the Ottawa River, River Run Rafting offers the best location on the river. The resort property is the arrival point for your day of adventure with a short bus ride to put-in. Located just below the last set of major rapids you will arrive back at the resort for hot showers, your dry clothes, a cool refreshement at our lively pub while enjoying a video re-run presentation of your trip.

Camping and a choice of affordable accommodations are available to overnight stays.


“Fantastic trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 20 July 2014

I went into this thinking the ride would be a pretty passive experience -- I've always been a little disdainful of rafts, with tourists crammed in like sardines. In fact, this was a real whitewater experience, letting someone like me, who isn't a good enough paddler to kayak big rapids on my own, experience big drops and powerful currents. Our guide was phenomenal -- unbelievable how they can control those huge clunky boats! -- and the Ottawa River is an incredible place. Our accommodations were quite lovely, though I guess it might have been nice to have a slightly more festive atmosphere at the main pavilion, which felt sort of empty.

But overall this is a fantastic place, with great guides and an amazing trip. Better than I could have imagined!
