Grand River Fall Colors Rafting Tour near Toronto

Grand River Fall Colors Rafting Tour near Toronto

Discover the radiant colors of autumn on Southern Ontario's Grand River!

Watch as each paddle stroke opens the canvas of the great Carolinian Forest before you. The valley is splashed with burnt orange and hickory yellows. Someone has definitely traced their paintbrush beyond human lines. Listen as blue jays announce your entrance into the Grand River Valley.

The sun will warm your back and the whole valley will be a river of fire as the steely waters reflect color. The fragrance of leaves will fill the air. And there is an autumn silence, as if no one has been there.

There is a stop along the way to hike to a lunch lookout. Learn about medicinal plants, taste edible plants used by the natives, enjoy talks on the Iroquoian wars, lifestyle, burial grounds and lost villages. See the amazing beauty of the Grand River Fall Colors Rafting Tour near Toronto!

Description

You will meet at the starting point and then be shuttled back to your vehicle at the end of the trip. The Rafts are top quality whitewater rafts made by Aire. They are self-bailing, multi chambered, stable & safe. These 5 meter rafts have floating floors that easily seat 6 people plus. They are like sitting around a big kitchen table.

Please bring your own snacks, water, and lunch. Coolers for food are provided.

What To Bring:

Sweater or jacket, hat, gloves, sunscreen, lip balm, sun glasses, camera, footwear that can get wet, insect repellant (even though there are few biting bugs while on the river). Also bring strings for those who wear glasses! Dress to strip down as you get warm. Nylon splash pants are recommended to wear over regular pants. No denim clothing please! Don't wear flip flops if you plan on swimming or body surfing, because they float away easily and are difficult to walk in on the stone bottom of the river.

Tripper Lunch Add-On

The Tripper lunch is homemade by a local cater the morning of the event to ensure excellent freshness. This includes a large fresh wrap stuffed with your choice of turkey, beef, ham, chicken, veggie or Chicken Caesar, plus a homemade butter tart or large cookie, fruit and juice, soda, or water. A very generous wrap & dessert that fills! This is a delicious addition to your trip without the hassle of bringing your own accommodations!
