Fall Colours on the Grand - Team Experience

4 hr Group Trip
Available as:

The Grand River flows thru a beautiful valley full of rare Carolinian Forest that creates walls of colour in the Fall.

Our guided Fall Colours experience on the Grand begin in Paris Ontario, Witness unique riverside architecture as you launch and paddle thru the heart of 1 of Canada's prettiest Towns. As your guide tells the stories behind scenery you'll begin a true Cultural experience as the river comes alive with their legends of Settlement and Aboriginal history.
Leaving town you paddle into the Carolinian Forest, experiencing Canada's most bio-diverse region with more types of trees than anyplace in Canada you will see an amazing range of colours, along a wide range of migrating birds from great blue herons, osprey and occasional bald eagles.
The Grand River here is a relaxing paddle with calm currents to move you along, plus dashes of small swifts to keep your interest piqued. All of our guides are Paddle Canada certified, many at instructor levels and can coach you on paddling skills.

Deepen the experience with a hike into the Carolinian Forest on the Trail of the White Cedar. Find rare species like Shag Bark Hickory & hike to a scenic lookout over the valley. Your interpretative guide will introduce you to a world thought long past and help you picture the Native tribe that frequented those same paths 400 years ago.

Paddle on to where the Grand meets a spring-fed creek, famous across North America for trout fishing and learn the Native legend of Whiteman's Creek. Your guide will share many more authentic experiences along this unique adventure before arriving at Grand Experiences' landing in Brant Conservation Area.

Our Shuttle service transports you back to Paris, where you can finish your adventure at 1 of Paris' many cafes, Restaurants, Pubs. Cobblestone Pub is right next door to us & Stillwaters is Just down the street with great views of the river.
