Stratford Road Trips


Back to All Events


Raft the mighty Grand River, starting at an old mill and ending at the quaint village of Paris, Ontario. Sunday, June 16th. 9:15 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

This trip heads to a land of fish, rivers and First Nations. We board rafts on the spirit-back of the mighty Grand River at Glen Morris, site of an old Mill dating back to the mid 1800's. Watch with each stroke as the canvas of the Carolinian Forest opens and closes before you and see how the respect of the ancient Haudenosaunee people was won. Approximately three hours and eleven kms later we arrive in Paris, once named 'Canada's Prettiest Little Town’ by Harrowsmith Magazine. The village is located where the Grand and Nith Rivers meet. It received its' name from the product made from the mined gypsum that lay along the Grand River bed and banks. Many walls and ceilings around the world have a little piece of this community within in them, if they were made using Plaster of Paris!
