All fall colours tours include life jackets and paddles for each person. Beginners of all ages can enjoy the outdoors after a kayaking or canoeing lesson, during which experienced professors of the paddle review the basics of their vessel. From there, clients take to the water for a tranquil 90-minute round-trip trek down the Humber River. As guests glide across the waters surrounded by the colours of fall, they can absorb the sights and sounds of a natural world not seen in big-city life: the sweet coo of the muskrat, the massive wingspan of the carp, or the gambling addiction of the blue heron.

Lessons and rentals may be booked Wednesday–Sunday. On weekends, there is an additional fee of $10 for single kayaks, $20 for tandem kayaks and regular canoes, and $30 for family canoes. Toronto Adventures Inc. is easily accessible via the TTC transit system. Free parking is available on-site.

Toronto Adventures

The team at Toronto Adventures create winter, summer, spring, or fall fun adventures by taking urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley and Copeland Forest, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron.

Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail. Toronto Adventures also offers adventure bus trips, dogsledding, stand up paddleboarding, hiking, and sailing.
