Noire River - Quebec > Looking for one more person

Fall, one the best seasons to paddle in Canada where everything changes: the colors the water and the temperature.

With a length of 238 km, this spectacular whitewater canoe route is filled with breathtaking views, wildlife and classic class 2 and 3 rapids with portage options. The Noire is a remote river located in Western Quebec and flows into the Ottawa River.The river is relatively small and the terrain alternates between Canadian Shield rock and sand. The navigatable rapids are long and the portages are short. (The Ottawa Valley Tourist Association)

We will be paddling during 5 days following the current trough swifts and rapids and amazing sand beaches where we will be camping every night.
