5 hr Group Trip
Available as:

Voyage of the Iroquois is a remarkable aboriginal themed daytrip on the Grand River, the Highway of the Iroquois. A Canadian Heritage River, the Grand is known for its rich Native history set in nature's paradise. You travel downstream in stable, comfortable 12-passenger voyager canoes, piloted by our expert guides & find the River lined with rare Carolinian forest, home to a unique combination of northern and southern flora & fauna. One 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 plus wildlife such as bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, beavers & white-tailed deer.

Midway through your journey stop for a guided hike on the Trail of the White Cedars. It leads to a scenic lookout revealing the river basin stretching out before you as far as the eye can see. On the trail you will enter a diverse forest world with rare Carolinian species plus ancient and fragrant cedars, softwoods, rich loam, patches of sand, and a high arching canopy.

As your journey continues down river your interpretative guide will tell the history & legends of lost Native communities along the river.

The final destination of your voyage is Turtle Island, a small isolated island featuring the untouched nature of the Carolinian forest, and a rare ancient hardwood amphitheater. You will be led through the island to the amphitheater, where you will receive a traditional aboriginal greeting by a First Nations Storyteller in full traditional regalia. Our Native storyteller has a quarter of a century of tourism experience and is a trained anthropologist with an extensive background in First Nations history. Watch and listen as he 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.
