Foresters Falls, Ontario, Canada

Whitewater Rafting on the Ottawa River – From the gleam of fast-moving clear water, to the adrenaline rush, rumble and tumble of rapid action, this is your chance to get in on the ‘current’ sensation. OWL Rafting, owned and operated by Claudia and Dirk Van Wijk, National and International Whitewater Champions, operates out of Forester’s Falls, Ontario, with raft excursions down the legendary 12 km ‘Rocher Fondu’ rapids of the Ottawa River. The OWL experience takes place just ninety minutes from the Nation’s Capital. Excursions embark 7 days a week from mid May through September.
