The Dumoine River 9-day excursion is a wilderness, whitewater canoe trip in western Quebec. The river is unique in having reliable water levels for canoeing throughout the entire season – from May to September. This 100-km Dumoine trip travels the entire river – from Lac Dix-Milles (Ten-Mile Lake) to the Ottawa River.

We’ll paddle about 35 sets of Class I to III rapids, including Big Steel, Canoe Eater, the Snake, Thread the Needle, and Red Pine. The guides will provide instruction and ongoing coaching as we descend the river. There are optional portage trails if you choose to skip a particular rapid. There will also be some time for swimming, fishing, and relaxing by the campfire.
