Another Canoe the Wild 4 day Allagash canoe trip guided by Tammi and Andrew. the perfect trip for those wanting an experience on Maine’s famed Allagash River but not wanting to be gone for a week or more. While many come to Maine just to do this trip, others will combine it with other destinations while on their Maine summer vacation  including time spent on the Maine coast at such destinations as Acadia National Park, Boothbay Harbor Region and Portland which has become quite the destination for fine dining.  Be sure to check out our 2020 schedule for Allagash canoe trips and other Maine canoe trips from 3 days to a week or longer.

Canoe the Wild is offering a fully outfitted and guided canoe trip on the Bonaventure River, June 2019.

One of Eastern Canada’s finest rivers with lots and lots of lively and class I-II whitewater with no portages and only a few linings. There are several class III ledge drops that can be lined or paddled. The Bonaventure starts out as a swift moving mountain stream with many sharp turns growing in size as we descend through a valley of Black Spruce.

The Bonaventure is a great choice for groups & individuals with good paddling skills. The views of the surrounding hills are spectacular. Trip is 7 days and we paddle 80 miles. Typically not a physically demanding trip unless the water is on the high side. Note: In the case of very high water, we offer paddling the lower Bonaventure then shift over and paddle the Cascapedia River.

NOTE: Being our earlier trip in June , this more then likely will be an all adult canoe trip.

  • Day 1: We meet up in Houlton, Maine for the 6 hour drive to the town of Bonaventure, where we tent overnight in a local campground.
  • Day 2: We meet our shuttle drivers for breakfast, then head into the headwaters of the Bonaventure in the Chic Choc Mountains. On this day, we only paddle a short distance and set up camp.
  • Days 2-4: The Bonaventure starts out as a swift moving mountain stream with many sharp turns, growing in size as we descend through a valley of Black Spruce. The views of the surrounding hills are spectacular.
  • Day 5: We are in the gorge with several ledge drops and numerous class II rapids.
  • Days 6-7: The river is much wider, and we paddle over many beautiful salmon pools on our way to the Bay of Chaleur.
  • Day 8: We take out mid-morning, grab a quick shower, hit the road, arriving back in the Houlton area early evening.

Cost per person, $1695.00
