About the Ottawa River


The Ottawa River, upstream of Canada's Capital, Ottawa, is the country's top destination for rafting and kayaking. While most of the river has been harnessed for hydro-electric power, there remains the "Rocher-Fendu", an old French word meaning "split rock". It's where the river flows through two billion year old granite bedrock and an island paradise of 175 islands (in high water) creating a whitewater playground.

The dozen dams upstream have created wide shallow lakes lined with granite which captures the heat of the sun and warms the water. Because watershed is not mountainous, electricity is generated with warm surface water. As a result, the Ottawa is blessed with not only spectacular rapids but also warm water well into September. It's a unique combination.
