Cost: $305.00 per raft for up to seven people, plus $7.50 per person plus HST.


Team Building Adventure #3 with a guide in each raft

Along the way the guide steers the raft, showing the valley and things to do. But also includes a choice of two team challenges below:  

1) Fork It Over… each raft has one balloon tied on it… and each raft is equipped with plastic forks… and the goal is to pop the balloons on the other rafts, but protect your own

2) Holy Smoke… each raft is given a cave man bow drill kit of wood, but no instructions…  they have to figure out how to assemble the bow drill and create smoke. First to get smoke wins. 

3) Cook Dat Egg… each raft is given tin foil, an egg and matches. They have to design a pot that will hold water, they must build a fire, boil the egg and eat it in a well done condition. If the egg is runny the team is disqualified. 

4) Noah’s Rock… each team is given duct tape. They must collect wood from the bush, build & design a duct-tape boat that will support a 10lb rock in a race through rapids on the river. 

5) The Office Fishing Kit… each team is given two paper clips, a file, pliers and fishing line. They must design their own fishing pole, build a weight, make a hook from the paper clip, find bait and catch a fish. Largest fish wins. 

6) Whose the Boss… a tug of war in the rafts with an assigned person sitting on the bow of each raft...this bow-person is tied around the waist with arms up in the air... joined by rope to their twin position in the other raft. At the word "go" each team rows backwards.

7) Here Moosee Moosee... each team listens to a bull and cow moose call... then each member does their best imitation. The team then chooses their best caller to compete in a “call off “against the other teams! 

8) Blind Man's Race... everyone is blind-folded in the raft except for the chosen "eye". This person sits in the front to direct. This is a race across the river and back with the leader being the eyes & direction for the team... an amazing event to watch!

Cost: $305.00 per raft for up to seven people, plus $15.50 per person plus HST.


Treasure Quest Adventure #4 (suggested groups of 1-5 rafts)  

This is a quest for a buried treasure... each raft  team gets a map with the coordinates missing. They also get seven photographs of where the missing coordinates are hidden. As the group paddles, they have to match the photo to what they are seeing and go in and find the coordinate... once all coordinates are gathered, the group paddles to the destination  to compass & chain to the buried treasure  First one there wins. This quest takes most groups 3 hours to do.

Cost: $300.00 per raft, with up to 8 people per raft plus $15.50 per person plus tax.


Turbo Tubing (Everyone can do this!)

This is our couch potato trip! Where we take you upstream and you paddle your Turbo Tube through a series of easy rapids back to one of our BBQ sites. This tubing trip takes about 3-4 hours to do.  You can have a safety guide bring up the rear. 

Cost: $30 per person plus HST. A safety guide if wanted is $145 plus HST for the day. 

Best Staff Appreciation Event Yet!!” 5 of 5 stars (Customer TripAdvisor Review)

Each year we have an event planned for the staff of our office.

This year picked Grand River Rafting.....What a Hoot!!! Weather great, guides great, food awesome, river amazing. Most of us had no idea the river was so beautiful.

Highlight was the balloon fight, midway....everyone got soaked! Excellent way to blow off steam!!!! Thanks Garth and crew........  more


“Excellent for Coporate or Group Retreat”    (Customer TripAdvisor Review) 5 of 5 stars

 
I booked this trip for our work retreat. Garth thought of absolutely everything and made everything run so smoothly. From directions to maps to marshmallows at night, the team made the trip seamless.

We stayed in tents, provided by Garth, while others were in the Five Oaks Chalet, which has a full kitchen, ample space, and was neat and clean.

The river rafting, team building exercises, and kayaking trip were perfect and we felt so well taken care of.

The food was fantastic and gourmet. The chef was able to cater to all our dietary restrictions (there were a lot!).

They took an effort to make everything accessible for small kids, non-swimmers, and even a puppy.

I would recommend this company for groups events. We hope to come back as a family to enjoy the incredibly beautiful river next year. I would say this trip was definitely worth the money and the team went above and beyond to make it memorable.... more
