Get ready for amazing adventures in fantastic places along Waterloo Region and Southern Ontario’s rivers and trails. Grand Experiences is known for their canoe, kayak, and bicycle trips. Explore St. Jacobs by bicycle on a 6-hour tour of Mennonite country, awarded an Ontario Signature Experience designation. Cycle along buggy lanes and farm roads, take in the shops in St. Jacobs Village, visit the only still-functional covered bridge remaining in Ontario, then stop to sample local beer during a tour of the Block Three Brewing Co.

More than just cycling, many other types of adventures await! Explore the Region by paddling, hiking, unique daytrips, or multi-day adventures! Best known for scenic trips along the Grand River, Southern Ontario’s largest, enjoy a tour of this Canadian Heritage River yourself, or with a group, and take in the rare Carolinian forest – Just 1 hour west of Toronto.

Also nearby is the Nith River, which features a wild experience for fearless adventure seekers. Take part in the fun of a whitewater rafting, a canoe/kayak tour, or lessons each spring, or indulge in true eco-adventure hiking the trails along the Grand River Valley in places like the Rare Area, or the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

Grand Experiences is Canada’s only outdoor adventure company operating on a Canadian Heritage River and UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves. They offer sea kayak training and tours on Long Point Bay.  Visitors may also wish to learn canoeing or whitewater rafting with one of the many instructional classes taught by certified Paddle Canada instructors. Help build your kids’ outdoor confidence during summer camps, or take your next corporate adventure outdoors. With numerous cultural and outdoor experiences to take in and unique places to stay, there is a Grand Experience for everyone!

To purchase Canadian-made canoes and kayaks, many of which are the same models used by their guides, visit their store.
