a rafting experience you won't forget
The hostel HI-Esprit Rafting is located in Davidson, right on the banks of the Ottawa River, mid-way between the world famous Algonquin and Gatineau Parks.
The hostel offers plenty of activities including whitewater rafting, canoeing in Algonquin Park, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, and climbing.
The hostel is well off the beaten tourist track yet is still easily accessible by public bus to Pembroke or Fort Coulonge, by Moose Transport (backpackers' budget transportation company) or by an Esprit shuttle from Ottawa/Gatineau.
For those in search of outdoor adventure, HI-Esprit Rafting will be a perfect destination!
Please note that some areas of the main building (bar and living room) are being rebuilt due to a fire. However, the hostel is open for business and still offers amazing rafting tours and outdoor activities by the river! Don't hesitate to contact the hostel team to learn more.
