Ontario’s Mattawa Voyageur Country offers a wide variety of canoeing options; all within a short walk or drive from Le Voyageur Inn. For the seasoned canoeing veteran or a first-timer, there is a canoeing experience for you.
For those new to canoeing, we recommend the one day guided trip on the Mattawa River. For the more experienced, canoe rentals are available to explore the river on your own. If you are feeling more adventurous, a visit to Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park or Algonquin Provincial Park may be in order. Both parks are in close proximity to Mattawa and they each have numerous lakes and rivers to discover. For something a little different, try sea kayaking on the upper Ottawa River.
Canoes, kayaks and tours can be arranged by contacting Algonquin North Wilderness Outfitters (Tel. No. 705-744-3265 or 1-877-544-3544) who are located conveniently at the corner of highway 17 and highway 630, just west of Mattawa. Tours of Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park can be arranged by contacting the park directly at this number: 1 705-744-2276
