The Riviere Noire—or Black River—runs 238 kilometres through magnificent western Quebec wilderness, past sandy beaches and thick pine forest before running into the Ottawa River at Waltham, Quebec.

This two-day canoe trip explores the Noire and includes Class I and II rapids, with an optional Class III section to tackle.

Led by expert guides and instructors, the trip includes two nights’ camping accommodation, all meals, safety and paddling equipment, and local transportation to and from the river. There are regular departures from May to October, 2017, with a minimum of four people required.
