Trip Information

Canoeing The Grand is ideally situated on the banks of the Grand River. Our trips offer a range of opportunities for both the novice paddler and to those wanting a more vigorous outing. We provide worry free direct access to the river and proximity to many more points along nearly 100 km of river trails. Although we specialize in shuttled trips, canoes are also available for hourly or daily rental. Every canoe trip price includes two personal floatation devices (PFDs), canoe, paddles, parking and shuttle service. We provide service by reservation (strongly recommended), and drop in.
