If you’re looking to explore the majestic, rolling Ottawa River this spring or summer, there’s no better place to be than the Ottawa region.
Canada’s beautiful urban capital is home to three whitewater rafting companies; OWL Rafting on the Ottawa River, RiverRun Rafting and Wilderness Tours, which have all been designated as an “Ontario Signature Experience” by Destination Ontario.
The Ontario Signature Experiences collection (OSE) aims to showcase the best as well as the most unique tourism experiences in the entire province. These are adventures that you won’t find anywhere else in Ontario or even in Canada!
According to Destination Ontario, all three rafting companies were awarded the prestigious “Ontario Signature Experience” designation in 2014, as they all offer quality experiences so unique that visitors from around the world will travel to Ontario just to partake in them. Whether you’re looking for a gentle family tour or a high-adrenaline rushing whitewater adventure, one of these three companies is sure to have what you’re looking for. Head out and explore some of the best whitewater terrain in the world, just a 90-minute drive from Canada’s Capital!
OWL Rafting on the Ottawa River also holds a Canadian Signature Experience (CSE) designation from Destination Canada. It is the only attraction of its kind in Ontario to receive this designation, along with its Madawaska Kanu Centre (MKC) experience which is offered on the nearby Madawaska River.
According to Destination Canada, the CSE program showcases Canadian experiences that respond to a traveller’s desire to venture beyond the beaten tourist path. Get in touch with OWL Rafting to learn more about these experiences.
