Adventure Overview

For years we’ve taken groups down the Noire and Dumoine Rivers and are now offering a trip on the last of the Three Sisters… the Coulonge River.

The headwaters of the Coulonge are located in La Vérendrye Wildlife Reserve, one of Québec’s many protected areas. Flowing south from La Vérendrye into the Ottawa River, the Coulonge is 270km of waterfalls, rapids, swifts and lakes. Of the Three Sisters, the Coulonge has the most fast moving water including lots of playful swifts and Class 1 rapids. The Coulonge is a beautiful geographical mix of both the rocky Canadian Shield terrain of the Dumoine and the sandy beaches that favour the Noire River.

Paddlers will enjoy many kilometers of fast moving water with the potential to paddle rapids from Class 1 to Class 3. Our guides will focus on whitewater paddling instruction that will enable all paddlers to expand their whitewater knowledge. There are also many picturesque waterfalls along this river which allow opportunity for excellent photography, and stretching your legs on a portage. Whether the Coulonge is the first of the Three Sisters you are experiencing or the third, everyone can appreciate the unique beauty that these three rivers offer.

We acknowledge that the Coulonge River flows through the traditional territories of the Omàmìwininìwag (Algonquin) and Anishinabeg Nation, and that we are visitors to this land.
