Wilderness Tours Adventure Resort


After spending the day on white water, your resort experience should be anything but rough. We may not be able to the control the water or the weather but we can make sure the temperature is just perfect in our hot tubs after your trip.

Rafters lodge is the apres-raft center for activities and entertainment on the Ottawa River. Many say its the most exciting spot in Ontario with lively nightlife on summer weekends. With live entertainment every night of the week in the summer!

The name RAFTERS has 3 meanings. The first is from the heavy beams, all BC fir. The second is from the old time rafters who drove more than 90 million white pine logs to Montreal in the 19th century. Lastly, the name honors modern day rafters in their bright blue boats who challenge the biggest whitewater in eastern Canada. Rafters is the heart of WT. It houses our dining room, amphitheater, lounge, deck, reception, pools, and hot tubs.

Every meal, every day is up to the challenge you are undertaking. Breakfast every day includes protein, carbs, bounty of fruit, cereals, pastries and tasty grill items. River lunch is one of those timeless meals that every river guide never tires of and misses well beyond the guiding years – Big Burgers, Oktoberfest Sausage, BBQ Chicken Breast, vegetarian options and all the trimmings including fruit, dessert, soup, trail mix, cookies and lemonade, water, coffee and tea.

Dinners are New York Strip Steak, BBQ Chicken, Ribs, Chili to die for and more. There is a large salad bar nightly and at every meal, even on the river, is vegetarian fare. No one goes hungry at WT. Remember though, with those big river lunches that Butcher Knife is just around the corner 🙂
