Available as:

2 day Grand River route on Exceptional Waters stretch of the Canadian Heritage River, Paris thru Brant's Crossing to the Oxbow, camping overnight at Brant Park.
Special designation is for its outstanding quality, significance in Canadian history, & providing a great outdoor experience.
It's ancestral home to First Nations Iroquois & home to an abundance of nature as South Ont.'s largest river with rare Carolinian forest, 85 species of fish, Blue Heron, Osprey & Bald Eagles.

Day 1 you take the Cayuga Run with our experienced guide staff launching you from our 150 year old Outfitters Shop in Paris. Paddle by the town's 1800's riverside architecture & into the Carolinian Forest valley. Our staff can tell where to find fresh water springs flowing in from Mile Hill, & other points of interest like Whitemans Creek & Sarah's Island mixed in with miles of scenery & great paddling. Land in Brant Conservation Area to camp for the night in 1 of South Ontario's largest nature parks with 3 kilometres of riverfront.

Launch from your campsite for day 2's journey on our Mohawk run. Paddle past historic D'aubigny Creek & Brant's Crossing & on to the Oxbow. A section of river full of history, it's home to Chief Joseph Brant, Alexander Graham Bell & Sir George Brown, a Father of Canadian Confederation.

The whole route covers relaxing River sections plus dashes of small swifts along the way to keep your interest & test your skills.

We keep your adventure stress-free handling all your logistics. Begin day 1 parking at your Brant Park campsite & catching our shuttle upstream to Paris. End of day 2 we meet you at the Oxbow landing & shuttle you back to your vehicle at Brant Park.
