Day-rafting trips plunk solo cruisers or up to seven rowers in the sporty Maravia rafts designed for durability and stability, and riverboarding trips careen over the waters on thick kickboards. Adventurers assemble before 8:30 a.m., receiving basic instruction and safety procedures that jealousy-filled dry land will never understand. Trips last until about 3 p.m. and include barbecue lunch refuelling. Rafting and riverboarding trips conclude with a celebratory beverage.

Horizon X

After sixteen years cruising capricious waterways by raft, Horizon X owner Martin Bertrand feels confident that the best excursions must take place in smaller boats. Rather than placing customers in the more popular and cost-effective "bus" rafts that seat 10–14 passengers, Martin opts for the small and stable Maravia Diablo. Referred to by Martin as the "sports cars of rafting," the safe, self-bailing vessels comfortably seat six to seven passengers. It's this attention to detail and customer service that won them "Feature Award – Tourism" at the 2013 Business Achievement Awards Gala held by the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to a whitewater rafting, Martin and his troupe of knowledgeable guides and instructors supervise riverboarding and kayak expeditions that last up to two days and often encompass Horizon X's signature overnight stays at a base camp. The base-camp is located on the Ottawa river with access to all of its breathtaking views. The base-camp excursions include recreation such as beach volleyball, horseshoes, and hammocks for groups of up to 42 people. As an incentive to encourage eco-friendly adventuring, Martin's green program furnishes free trip photos and tree hugs if participants carpool to the base camp in the best ratio for their group.

Customer Reviews

fantastic place, all the staff were full of energy, definitely catered the trip to the participants, will be going back!

Definitely the best choice out of the other company's out there! Dan was amazing! I always felt safe, even when I was tossed out of the boat. The boats are smaller but it made the experience much better! I plan on making this a regular tradition.

It was a great trip. The guides were a lot of fun. The trip was well organized overall. You really get a lot more value with Horizon X over many other local rafting companies as the Horizon X boats are smaller (which other companies charge extra for) and you really get to experience the rapids. Fantastic trip! Horizon X will be my go-to rafting company from now on. :)
