The Noire (Black) River is a remote river located in Western Quebec and flows into the Ottawa River near the village of Davidson. The river is relatively small and the terrain alternates between Canadian Shield rock and sand.
The Noire River is the little sister to the Dumoine River. With a total length of 238 km, this spectacular whitewater canoe route is filled with breathtaking views, wildlife and classic class 1, 2 and 3 rapids. With almost 12% of the total river distance being moving water there are 51 runnable rapids and a total of 12 portages. Compared to the Dumoine or the Coulonge, the Noire has the highest total running length of rapids, the lowest distances of portages, the best opportunities to view wildlife and the lowest boat traffic. While it is a river that allows participants to believe that they are traveling in secluded wilderness, the Noire also offers numerous access points in case the need arises, allowing for effective risk management.
We would put in at the bottom of De I’lslet, Hunt Club or 50:50 and paddle to the Black River Inn. Total River distance would be between 25 – 63 kms.

Quality of equipment...
The highlight of the trip was the make-up of the group. I felt very lucky to have had a group that got along very well. I also was very impressed with the organization, equipment, and preparedness of the company. In terms of equipment, I came on the trip wondering if your canoes and tents would be very good. They were; I would advertise that if I were you.
