Toronto Adventures’ experienced guides ferry boaters of all skill levels on leisurely two-hour tours through the scenic Humber River’s protected waters, forests, and marshes. Before adventurers launch their vessels, kayaking and canoeing gurus hand out safety equipment and impart basic techniques for stroking paddles down the river or for stirring six-foot-tall cups of noodles. Scenic waterways and leaves painted in fall colours emerge as boaters float down aquatic highways on the west end of the Toronto area. Eyes turn toward occasional sightings of local wildlife, which often include swans, foxes, salmon, and several types of turtles. Meanwhile, guides ensure paddlers stay on track as they float down calm waters with little wave activity. Participants should dress appropriately for their adventure date’s conditions, as tours operate during rain, cold temperatures, and the forest’s weekly leaf-ball fights.
Toronto Adventures Inc.
The team at Toronto Adventures Inc. 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.
