10 hr Guided Trip
Available as:

Voyage of the Iroquois is a remarkable aboriginal themed day-trip on the Grand River, the Highway of the Iroquois. A Canadian Heritage River, the Grand is rich in Native history, set in nature's paradise. You travel downstream in stable, comfortable 12-passenger voyager canoes, piloted by our expert guides & discover the River lined with rare Carolinian forest, home to a rare combination of flora & fauna, 1 of Canada's most biodiverse areas. Your Paddle Canada certified guide, trained in the river's history & wildlife, will point out unique natural features such as cold springs & wildlife such as bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, beavers etc.

Midway through your journey take a guided hike on the Trail of the White Cedars, leading to a scenic lookout over the river basin stretching out before you as far as the eye can see. The trail takes you thru a diverse forest of rare Carolinian species plus ancient, fragrant cedars.

Our voyage takes you to Turtle Island, an oasis of untouched nature. A short hike led thru the forest leads you to the campfire site of an authentic First Nations Storyteller. Dressed in full traditional regalia, they welcome you with a traditional aboriginal greeting. Then your Story-teller brings history to life with captivating First Nations Myths and Legends. Participate in a traditional native dance, and let him enthrall you with his mesmerizing flute playing, a haunting and beautiful tribute to a far off time.

Trip includes all paddling gear, experienced Voyageur Canoe guide, shuttle service between Paris & Brant Conservation Area (trip launch & landing points).
