The Dumoine is the most dramatic of Quebec's western rivers. Pine topped bluffs rising 200 m (600 ft.), beautiful waterfalls; sparkling beaches, spectacular cliffs, remarkable camping sites and enchanting scenery. The historic Dumoine, in the heart of Canada's pine country, drops over 150 m (500 ft.) to the Ottawa River with lots of class I, II and III white water with names like Canoe Eater, Thread the Needle, Snake, Gooseneck, Cliff Hanger and Log Jam.
We will fly from Rapides-des-Joachims (off highway 17 at Rolphton, Ontario) to Lac Benoit in a Beaver aircraft with our canoes to begin our 60 km (37 mi.) descent.
Notes: The Dumoine is probably the most popular canoe-tripping river in Québec. It is also one of the best for learning and practicing white water skills because the many rapids are separated by small pools. There will be lots of time for instruction. Optional hikes to take in exceptional views and interesting waterfalls complete the trip. No white water experience is necessary but trippers must be able to stern a canoe.This trip is for more experienced paddlers.
All trips are payable in Canadian dollars.
