Quebec’s Coulonge River has a great combination of lake and river paddling. It offers a mix of Canadian Shield bedrock and sandy esker meanders. The whitewater boasts ledge-type descents and deep-channel runs. The river is interesting in high and low water levels, with many scenic chutes and falls.

Among the small lakes and creeks high in the Laurentian Highlands – the worn remains of the world’s oldest mountains – our wild river begins. In La Vérendrye Wildlife Reserve, the route passes through a number of large lakes, before narrowing down after Lac Pomponne. We will begin our 200-km paddle at Lac Pomponne – the start of the whitewater stretch. Wildlife abounds, with moose, black bears, foxes, and minks on the shore, while the river supports abundant otters, turtles, and beavers.
