Dumoine River (Lac Benoit) - 29 June to 5 July 2024 (FULL)

The Dumoine River is a classic intermediate whitewater trip. Running 62km from Lac Benoit to the Ottawa River, the river offers great scenery, good fishing opportunities, and a nearly endless supply of Cl I-III runnable rapids with only a handful of mandatory portages.
We will access the river by shuttle (details, pricing to follow), and make our way downriver at a leisurely pace with plenty of time to take in the scenery, spend some time playing in select rapids, and otherwise enjoy what the river has to offer.
