The Bonaventure River, Gaspe, Quebec, One of Eastern Canada's finest rivers, the Bonaventure is a great choice for groups & individuals with good paddling skills. We spend a total of five full and two half days on the river.
Day 1: We meet up in Houlton Maine for the 7-8 hour drive to the town of Bonaventure where we tent overnight in a local campground.
Day 2: We meet our shuttle drivers for breakfast then head into the headwaters of the Bonaventure in the Chic Choc Mountains. On this day, we only paddle a short distance and set up camp.
Days 2-4: The Bonaventure starts out as a swift moving mountain stream with many sharp turns growing in size as we descend through a valley of Black Spruce. The views of the surrounding hills are spectacular. 
Day 5: We are in the gorge with several ledge drops and numerous class II rapids.
Days 6-7: The river is much wider and we paddle over many beautiful salmon pools on our way to the Bay of Chaleur. 
Day 8: We take out mid morning, and after cleaning up, travel back to Maine arriving in the Houlton area early evening.
Inquire about special pricing for your school, youth or scout group. Note: Trips can be shortened to five days.
