Thanks to inflation, rivers are traversable and prices for almond butter are downright outrageous. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a four-hour guided rafting trip down the Grand River from Grand Experiences (a $28.19 value, including HST). Trips meet in Paris, Ontario, about a 90-minute drive from downtown Toronto.
Grand Experiences safely eases customers onto Grand River's scenic waves for outdoor, enthusiastic voyages. A four-hour paddle-powered journey snuggles four to eight passengers into a large, comfortable raft and floats them along one of two nature-adjacent routes through the Grand River Valley. For a slow float along the wildlife-studded forests, opt for the Cayuga run, a smooth journey with small spurts of rapids, during which great blue heron, mallard, osprey, alien, and painted turtle sightings are all possible. For a more adventure-filled ride, set sail on the Oneida run, with more frequent low-key rapids and a hiking stop at a scenic vista. Both routes run about 10 to 12 kilometres and are led by experienced guides who are well versed in local history and the dark art of paddle pickling.
Both of the Grand Experiences river floats are suitable for rafters of all levels, and all the gear, equipment, and rushing river water needed are included in the price of this deal. Rafters should tote along a sweater or a jacket, a stetson, sunscreen, bug spray, bottled water, a snack, a camera, and any footwear that is brave enough to get wet. Wearing denim or cotton is discouraged due to each fabric's wishy-washy dry time.
