Canoeing tour on the Bonaventure River in the Gaspe region of Quebec


Paddle the pristine Bonaventure River on this canoeing expedition in the Gaspe region of Quebec. This unique Gaspe river is said by many to be one of the most pristine wilderness whitewater rivers east of the Canadian Rockies. Flowing out of remote Lac Bonaventure, nestled high in the Chic Choc Mountains, the river features forested gorges, dramatic mountain vistas, and crystalline salmon filled waters. 

With a consistent dropping gradient, the river is characterized by virtually continuous technical Class I, more often than not class II whitewater (with a few Class III drops in the gorge section) —all the way to the sea.  Come join us for a seven-day, six-night wilderness canoe/camping experience. Previous whitewater experience is required, as it is not suitable for beginners.  There are no portages, but there may be a short drag around dry-ki. As the water is very cold, guests may want to bring along a wetsuit.  

This trip meets in the town of Bonavenutre the night before the trip at a riverside base camp. A unique mini-expedition on one of eastern Canada’s most appealing rivers, the Bonaventure is a perennial favorite for many paddlers.

Day 1

The night before: Trip guests meet in Bonaventure, QC. the night before the trip having driven themselves there or arrived by train where we can pick you up.  We will camp that night at a local riverside campground/outfitter just outside of the village of Bonaventure.  (shower facilities available)

Day 1-6: After breakfast we'll board the vans and head into the Chic Choc Mountains to the headwaters of the river at Lac Bonaventure.  We'll spend 7 days and 6 nights on the river camping alongside or nearby wonderful rapids amidst the splendor of these east coast mountains.  The river contains virtually continuous mildly technical Class I and II whitewater all the way to the Sea.  These are interspersed with a few Class III drops.

Day 7

On the last day we'll paddle to the Sea at the Baie des Chaleurs.  We’ll likely all stay at local accommodations on this our final night and enjoy a farewell dinner together before the drive home.
