One of the highlights of paddling the Rivière Rouge are these sandy beaches along the way. Our chosen day was overcast and drizzly, not great for swimming. In the future a paddle down this river on a hot summer day would be divine.
The outfitters offer shuttles and rentals so you can start upstream and end downstream and get a ride back to your car. Which is ideal. This service is great for a group.
Family canoe day on the Rivière Rouge
Rented canoes at Kayak & Cabana and did a 12 km paddle on the Rivière Rouge with my whole family - brother & family, my parents and our family.
The Rivière Rouge is a very popular destination for leisurely paddling with several outfitters.
