If you’re really looking to “get away from it all,” Beachburg is the place for you. Located in in beautiful Upper Ottawa Valley, Beachburg is one of four communities that make up the Whitewater Region.
Thrill seekers know Beachburg and the Whitewater Region as a whitewater rafting hotspot, where you can get out and play – and get wet – in the Ottawa River rapids. Kayaking is also a popular sports activity in this area. OWL Rafting, River Run Rafting and Wilderness Resort, and Wilderness Tours can help you plan your stay; some of these expedition companies also offer resort accommodations where you can soak in a hot tub and relax after your rapids adventure.
In summer months, the Beachburg Fair is the place to be, with a midway, horse drawing and pony pull competitions, and a good old-fashioned demolition derby. In the winter months, bring your cross-country skis and snowshoes and explore the extensive local trails.
Off-road cyclists will want to keep track of when the year-round trail system being completed by the Beachburg Off Road Cycling Association (BORCA) reaches completion. Check BORCA’s Facebook page for updates on the trail.
