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.
