Introducing Canyon Adventures

22 Jun 2012

On Friday, July 6, 2012 Riverfront Chalets & Rafting Newfoundland will be partnering with Gyula Takacs of Hungaroraft and combining over 40 years of whitewater experience to bring adventure to a whole new extreme in Grand Falls-Windsor!

Experience the excitement of rafting through an 80 foot vertical walled deepwater canyon and riding a roller coaster of waves crashing around you; your adrenaline will be pumping all day! This two hour excursion through the Exploits River Canyon features non-stop excitement with some of the biggest rapids on the island!

For the even more adventurous, try running the rapids at eye level on a hydrospeed board. This unique experience is the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada and will help establish Grand Falls-Windsor as the adventure capital of the East Coast of Canada. Whether on raft or Hydrospeed board, this trip is intense and requires strong and confident swimmers in good physical condition. Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

In conjunction with the Exploits River Appreciation Week (July 1 - July 7), Canyon Adventures will be
auctioning off seats on their inaugural run and donating all of the proceeds to local Scouts Canada & Girl Guides of Canada groups. Riverfront Chalets & Rafting Newfoundland has a long and proud history of fighting for the preservation of the Exploits River and the natural beauty that surrounds it. Scouts Canada and Girl Guides of Canada are well known for their dedication to teaching youth the importance of protecting and appreciating our natural world. The money raised from the auction will help provide quality programs to over 200 local youth.

The winning bidders will be the first clients to ever run this incredible new rafting adventure, and will receive a commemorative DVD recording their epic journey through the Canyon. You can be a part of local history, and support two very valuable youth organizations at the same time.

To place your bid, please visit and click on the link at the top of the page. Charitable receipts will be issued for winning bids of $50 or greater. Through your generosity, we are planning to raise at least $2,000 which will make an incredible difference to the youth in Grand Falls-Windsor.
