The Deal

Admission includes a campsite, though festival-goers must bring their own tent and sleeping bag. During the two-day festival, participants can lounge on the beachy banks of the Ottawa River, hike through the lush wilderness, or, for an added fee, enjoy such exciting distractions as a 150-foot bungee jump (Ontario’s only) or a day of white-water rafting. All the while, musical headliners Classified, The Sheepdogs, and Arkells fill the air with their distinct sounds.

Wilderness Tours

Struck by wanderlust after reading J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy novels, Joe Kowalski decided to kindle his own passion for adventure by exploring the uncharted rapids of the Ottawa River with a group of fellow college students. There they discovered a multi-channel paradise—the six-mile-wide river churned through dozens of islands, jutting rocks, secluded beaches, and gorgeous waterfalls, as well as calmer paddling runs. Their stories and videos attracted guests, spurring the loosely organized group to band together in 1975 to become Wilderness Tours. To date, they have guided more than one million people safely down the river.

Today, the guides spend most of their time on white water rafting day trips, pausing in their runs to lead body-surfing and cliff-jumping adventures at some of the river's calmer spots. A riverside lunch is also provided to refuel paddlers for the second half of their run.The main resort also makes use of the stunning topography and forests that surround the river during rock-climbing, bungee jumping, and mountain biking excursions. The Wilderness Tours Adventure Resort offers luxury accommodations alongside a restaurant and bar.

Customer Reviews

Our guide was absolutely amazing! I think his name was Jordan? He did a really good job of reading the group and helped tailor the adventure accordingly. My friend and I were looking for maximum adventure, and we got it. We'll be returning to Wilderness Tours. =)
