About River Run Rafting Resort

River Run  Resort is located 1.5 hours from Ottawa and 5 hours east of Toronto in the Ottawa Valley.  The “Valley” as it’s called by the locals stretches from Ottawa, our Canadian capital city, westward to Ontario’s world-renowned Algonquin Park. More than half the valley (over 6 million acres) is spectacular wilderness and the setting for your visit to RiverRun on the Ottawa River.

River Run Rafting Resort is spread over 165 acres with almost 4000 feet of beautiful shoreline on the Ottawa River

Hiking enthusiasts can explore the rugged beauty of our resort property on our groomed trail system and includes EXCLUSIVE ACCESS FOR OUR GUESTS TO THE OTTAWA RIVER PROVINCIAL PARK. This 125 acre park adjoins the River Run Resort with hiking trails throughout old growth forests and spectacular views of the Ottawa River.

This unique riverside resort began as a fledgling rafting outfitter in 1980, providing safe and exciting rafting trips and outdoor vacations. The Ottawa River has become known for its beauty, world-class whitewater and its colourful history.

River Run, a world-class resort as well as a premier rafting destination, welcomes visitors from across Canada and around the world that are looking for healthy outdoor activities while experiencing the great Canadian wilderness. Choose your excitement level with one of our river trips, from gentle family rafting to high-adventure rafting and River Tubing. There is an exciting adventure for everyone.

Spread over 165 acres with almost 4000 feet of beautiful shoreline, this resort property now offers a choice of accommodations and separate camping areas.

We welcome groups, couples and families looking for great outdoor adventure and recreation or perhaps some quiet time relaxing in nature. Explore woodland trails and see the beauty of the Ottawa River, ancient rock formations of the Canadian Shield, and the Laurentian Mountains from our scenic lookout.

Learn more about the history of the river and the Ottawa Valley on our Family Raft Trip and a visit to Ross Museum just minutes away in the quaint village of Foresters Falls. Nature lovers and camera buffs will have opportunities to see old growth forests plus many species of plant and wildlife. The Ottawa River is a fisherman’s paradise, so bring your rod.

When a family visits River Run Resort, something wonderful happens. Time slows right down. Go for a leisurely swim, explore scenic hiking trails and enjoy a beautiful sunset.

Choose River Run Resort for a great weekend getaway or stay longer if you choose. Experience one of our river trips, take-in some of the unique local attractions, shop in quaint villages, or go for a round of golf at many of the nearby courses, or relax at the beach. We have something for everyone!
