In early Spring the Nith River near Paris Ont. comes alive with mild class 1 ' 2 rapids creating a great, fun experience for adventure seekers of all abilities. We offer guided whitewater canoe & kayak trips on the Nith that are full adventure packages, led by awesome guides/instructors averaging a dozen years experience as professionals leading trips & teaching skills. For canoeing & kayaking your guide is all about instruction & coaching your skills.

Perfect for learning & practicing whitewater skills, the Nith begins with a mild 4 ft/mile elevation drop mixed with occasional swifts where you can easily practice skills. As the trip and your skill progresses so does the elevation drop, reaching 20 ft/mile by the end and creating several kilometres of incredible rapids

Your professional guides will work with your group to teach / improve paddling skills while they share their Nith experiences. They'll show how to read river currents while telling legends of lost communities, ancient Native Battles and a tale of outlaw Jesse James hiding out in Mudge Hollow. As your guides helps your group paddle the Nith like pros, they will also help spot Red Tailed Hawks, White-tailed Deer & other wildlife as you paddle by miles of forest.

The remote forest landscape adds highlights for your adventure as does landing on Viking Beach to build a campfire with your guide. Along with the warming outdoor experience your group is rewarded by mouth-watering BBQ chicken & our famous Maple Chili for a delicious hot lunch at the midway point. After lunch paddle Swift Alley & take Hidden Reach to find Devils Cave, appreciating your guides; experience as they guide your group in how to navigate its deceptive currents. For the big finale tackle fun, exhilarating rapids at Arrowhead, Big Curve and Penman's Pass. Everyone will be amazed how fast the 4+ hour journey passed as they shout, 'That was Awesome!'
