Rafting Trip

What a wonderful adventurous day we had rafting! Two families including 4 teenage boys were present.The sights are beautiful and the water rafting .... so much fun! Our tour guides Hadan and Darren were very experienced, good for laughs and very friendly. They know how to keep 4 teenage boys entertained ! They also know how to make a great picnic. They took lots of pictures for us . Guys you rock ! Made it a blast for us all . What a way to spend Canada Day! Can't believe we didn't do it before! Hopefully we will return before summer is done.

I stayed at Riverfront Chalets on Sept 13th and did the Badger Chute Rafting the following day with my 9 year old son and a couple of friends. Everyone enjoyed the experience. The owners and guides were awesome making it a weekend we won't forget. We will definitely be returning in the spring/summer for rafting and might try to get out snowmobiling as well. Thanks for everything!!

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

We had an amazing time at your beautiful chalet! Everything from the children catching frogs to the fire pit area was great! The rafting was so fun, even through the thunder, lightening and at times heavy rain. I think that made it more of an adventure actually. Our group had 3 boys ages 10, 9 and 6 and they had a blast as well. We will be back for sure, maybe next time for skidooing. Thanks a lot!!

Rafting Trip

We did the new whitewater rafting that started I believe in 2012. There was only myself , my daughter,and our guide in the raft, so we ended up with the smaller raft. There was another guide with us in a whitewater kayak, who took pictures and was there to add a little more safety to the experience. The rafting was way beyond anything I would have expected here on the Island. We left Corner Brook in the morning and drove out for the late morning rafting.We started off by paddling straitaway to a little waterfall which our guide suggested we get under to get used to the temperature of the water because we were definitly going to be going in, he was certainly right about that! That's when I realised that we were in for a great ride, we spent more time out of the raft than in it. Well, not quite but we really enjoyed the excitement that came along with falling out and trying to get back in the raft Our guides were fantastic and we felt very safe knowing the experience they had.This adventure , for me, ranks as one of the best and exciting adventures I've done.It was a gift I received from my daughter for my 50th birthday and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate it,thanks Amanda.

Rafting Trip

The entire day was awesome, although we are from Nl we really appreciated taking advantage viewing the prestine river and river banks, swimming the the river and the adventure of rafting right here at home. Excellent way for newfoudlanders to appreciate home and tourists to get a glimpse of newfoundland wilderness....

Steven Saunders - GRand Falls Windsor

Rafting Trip

We came down from Toronto to visit family and took a day for the badger run. It was amazing. The guides kept us entertained throughtout the day, and stopping in the middle of the river for a excellent lunch and rest was icing on the cake. We enjoyed it so much that we signed up for the run behind the mill the next day. Next time I am back in Grand Falls I will definelty be doing both runs again. It was pretty cool how they ade teams out of the raft crews and we got to race and splash each other. Oh yeah, knock each other out of the raft too. These folks know what they are doing...

Phyllis Morris - Deer Lake Nl

Rafting Trip

It was wonderful.I was lazy did not want to paddle,just drift along the river.The guide did not make a big deal,also picked up on my fear of the water.He was very thoughful and considerate in a non assuming way.It was easily my favourite event of the summer.

Erin - St. John's

Rafting Trip

My boyfriend and I decided to do the Canon Run on our way home from a trip to Gros Morne. The river rafting was probably the best part of our entire trip! I would recommend it to anyone, and would definitely do it again myself!

Brad & Renee Gibbons - Wareham, NL

Rafting Trip

We had an awesome trip during our Badger Chute run and plan to do the more adventurous canyon run next year. We would highly recommend the Badger run for beginners and families. The guides made us feel very safe and can easily accommodate the run according to your comfort level. You should be prepared to get wet and a have a lot of fun. The Chalets look warm and inviting and we intend to stay for a night or two during our next trip. Thanks to the staff for a excellent time!

Karen Bursey - CBS, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

We stayed at Riverfront Chalets during the Grand Falls Windsor Salmonfest 2012. The chalets we rented were spotless and the accommodations could not have been more comfortable. On Saturday prior to the concert we went on a rafting trip and had an excellent day on the river. The rafting guides were very knowledgeable and a whole lot of fun! We were a group of 10 people and everyone had a wonderful time during that weekend We are already booked to return next summer. I would highly recommend the Chalets and the Rafting Trip.

M. Abdi - St. John's

Rafting Trip

We really enjoyed our time during the visit to Riverfront. We didn't stay overnight and only took the rafting trip. It was really fun! I was not sure in the beginning if I would enjoy it but when went through the river rapids and all the excitement of the white water rafting I am thinking I might want to try it again. The tour guides were very nice and spirited; we had many nice conversations and got a lot of information about the locale and the trips they had all over the world. They took good care of us, helped us enjoy the trip the most, showed us interesting places along the river and fed us good healthy food along the way. Recommend it to every one!

My friend and i did the river rafting and it was absolutely one of the fun est and funniest things i have done.We had an awesome guide and felt safe the whole time.I definitely recommend it everyone. Thanks Riverfront !!!

Rob & Tracy - Torbay, NL

Rafting Trip

First off I would like to congratulate Paul, Jason and everyone with Rafting Newfoundland.. We took the Canyon Run today out of Grand Falls. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. the only problem we had was not a Rafting Newfoundland problem, but we found it difficult to find the Salmonid Interpretation center (the pick up point) but once meeting the guys things were AWESOME!!! I feel really bad I can't remember our guides name but that's not because he wasn't any good, I suck with names(my fault). He took us on a great trip, we'll be back again, maybe even the Badger Chute Adventure.. Either way we'll definitely come back, thanks for a great afternoon...

Tracie Carter - Harbour Breton, NL

Rafting Trip

We came with the Harbour Breton CYN and we had the most amazing wonderful trip!!!!! Our guide Piers was the best!!! He was so informative and knew all about the rapids and was so enjoyable to spend the day with!!! All of the kids had the best day ever!!!! From the beginning to end it was the most exciting day they have experiened!! The nutritious lunch on the rocks was wonderful and to top it off the sun even came out and dried up all the rain!!!!! Thanks again and we will be back!!!!

Wanda And The Two Andreas

What was a last minute decision turned out to be one of the highlights of our annual girls get-together weekend. The guides were first class - Darren, Will, Chris and Pierce. Darren guided our raft specifically and created a full day of fun and lots of memories. He also captured many wonderful moments on camera. Thanks to everyone - it was a world class experience.

These guys are the best and the experience is as real as it gets. We enjoyed two days on (and in!) the river including an overnight camp. Paul and Joy are great guides, very skilled, culturally knowledgeable and good fun. You will have a great time in a beautiful and memorable location. Although it is several years ago, we both have great memories of our time. Go for it!

What a fantastic time!

Thank you to your wonderful and very capable guides - Geoff and Piers. We had a great time despite the weather not cooperating. But Geoff and Piers shared their love and enthisiasm of the sport and made the day so memorable. We will be back and bring another couple with us. Thinking of trying the canyon trip behind the mill when that starts up. That will be the ultimate!

The Blackmores - Paradise, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

We had an awesome weekend at your resort. The chalets are next to none and the rafting trip was the greatest and of course your dogs were the stars of the weekend. Our girls fell immediately in love with them! They are already planning for our next visit to bring some extra treats for them. We can't wait to the rafting again next summer. Our guides Paul and Geoff were very experienced and made the trip that much more enjoyable. Our girls, Jonnie and Jaimie had a ball and are looking forward to our upcoming winter vacation with you guys. For the past 20 years we have vacationed outside of Canada for our annual month long vacation and thankfully this year our girls, who have had 8 trips outside of Newfoundland, have decided they would like to do our vacationing at home this upcoming, vacation year. This past weekend was a taste of vacationing here at home, other than camping during the summer, and it was the best. We have travelled to numerous destinations with our girls who are 9 and 10 years old and have done many adventure tours on our holidays and they said that this was one of the best. Thanks again and my hat goes off to you guys and your beautiful resort. Can't wait for the next visit and adventure. Say hi and give a treat to Nanook and Nekeah for us!

Dana Keeping - Conne River/ St. John's

Paul and Joy, We had such a great time I just booked in again for next year! The Chalets are Deluxe, lovely and clean and very well stocked! We wanted for nothing and felt right grand in the Hot tub looking out over the beautiful Exploits river! The river rafting was a real time! Thanks you so much for your terrific hospitality I cannot wait to do it all again next year!

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

My family rented two chalets and went on the rafting trip for a weekend and loved it! The chalets were beautiful and we loved the jacuzzi and fire spot, we literally stayed up until dawn we had that much fun. The rafting trip was extraordinary! our guide was one of the nicest people I have met and I would love to go on a trip like that again. Even though I fell off while riding the bull I loved it, I recommend this place to everyone, if you want to have a exciting and fun weekend you should definitely come here.

Tanya & Mark - Gambo, NL

Justin & Sarah Canning - Fort McMurray, AB

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

Day 7 of our Newfoundland honeymoon, and what an eventful day it was! River rafting with Paul and Mike from Badger down to the Riverfront Chalets which was our home away from home for the night. The rafting was great, it never got boring or "tour like". With every change in water formation, there was something new and exciting. There was supposed to be a water fight between the two rafts, but it seemed that our raft was every man for himself! It didn't take long before the first victim went overboard. By the end of the trip everyone was in the water on occasion, some more than others of course. Along with the rafting there was loads of swimming, including this one place in particular. Just before lunch we stopped off at a great little swimming spot, where you could jump in and the current would pull around in one big circle. Paul and Mike knew the river like the back of their hand. The lunch was fantastic! Wouldn't have packed it any better ourselves. We mixed up the boat crews a little bit and got a chance to do some surfing in the rafts, and all I can say is "ride the bull!". As if the rafting wasn't enough, the chalets are simply amazing! Hardwood, and ceramic throughout. Full kitchen with great appliances, two bedrooms, satellite, DVD player, bbq on the deck. Hottub, boot dryer, and did I mention Jacuzzi?! The mattresses are so comfortable, and there is so much natural light. On top of it all, you don't even need to call CAA if you lock your keys in the car, Paul and Mike had it covered. Thanks Guys! Should be 5 star!

Nicole & Alex Bracci - Bistro on Roe - Gander, NL

Hi Paul! Have to say that the six of us had just the absolute best time ever this past weekend at your place! The chalets were perfect and the river tour was the most fun we've had in a long, long time! LOVE the hot tub and adore your beautiful dogs. You, Joy and Mike are perfect hosts and guides and we all felt so safe during the trip. Well all except Dana that is but that just couldn't be helped...! Hopefully, you'll see us and at least one of our kids before the summer's through for another day on the water! Thanks so much for a great, great weekend!

D. Banfield - St. John`s, NL

An absolutely fantastic time. Can't wait to do it again next year. The Chalet's are out of this world and the rafting was second to none. Fun for beginners and experts. All 6 of us had a blast.

Bernadine & Chris - Gander, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip - Equipment Rental

We did the river rafting tour with Rafting Newfoundland last summer and had a blast. It was awesome. When we found out the chalets were open we couldn’t wait to try them out. We were looking for a nice, relaxing, stress-free place to unwind and we definitely found it. The chalets are absolutely beautiful with everything you could possibly need at your fingertips. The quality is top notch. The service was second to none. Paul and Joy certainly catered to all our needs and then some. They even invited us to a fire by the riverside. We opted for a ride in the UTV which we thoroughly enjoyed….even saw a hawk and way too many rabbits to count. We absolutely loved the hot tub…it was the icing on the cake and catapulted the 4 1/2 star into a 5 star experience. We’d definitely recommend this place to anyone and will be back for sure. Whether you want to just relax or if you have a more adventurous spirit and want to enjoy the great outdoors, this is the spot for you!

Paul/Mike, we had a freakin' blast yesterday with you guys...we're still drying out today. Look forward to returning soon but I will have the art of marshmallow roasting conquered first for the fire pit. Thanks for a fantastic time!

Debbie Huntley - Mount Uniacke, NS

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

Paul, Joy, Mike and Ella, We wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on the rafting tour as well as the stay at the Chalets. Our Newfoundland experience was one of the best due to the fact that the hospitality is second to none. There were eight of us and we stayed in two Chalets (I would definitly give them a five star). We have travelled to places such as Cuba, Mexico, Jamicia and we always plan some kind of adventure while there, I would have to say that our rafting adventure was the most fun that we have ever had. In fact our whole vacation to Newfoundland was just as much fun as any of our southern vacations!!! Thanks for the memories! I would highly recommend it to anyone! Debbie, Dale, Debbie, Scott, Kevin, Sharon, Michael and Brenda

Paul Ford - Mount Pearl, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

WOW,WOW,WOW ..... absolutly the most fun we had in quite some time. The cabin, the hot tub, Paul & Joy's hospitality, the ride and Mike are all FIRST CLASS. We cannot wait till next year to go back with more friends and spend more time on the river. Who needs Florida???? Try it you will LOVE IT. Paul, Joy & Mike.... thank you very much! We will be back.

Bob Trainor - Portugal Cove, NL

What an experience! Can't wait to go again and this time will also stay in the chalets.If this business was a hotel-I can tell you they would be rated 5 star.Paul is excellent at what he does and makes you feel like you knew him along time-Great people-Great time-see you next summer!!!

Susan Cameron - Gander, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

Thank you again for a fantastic couple of days !! You guys have got some great ideas and your place is absolutely the best vacation spot I've been in so far here on the rock, or the maritimes actually. And when I think about it, I enjoyed it even more than that time I went donkey riding through the hills in Cyprus to an old monastery. Seriously, you guys have a great thing going on and your hard work and dedication definitely shows that you love what you do. It was like going home to relax for a few days and you definitely don't get that at a lot of places. And besides enjoying the toilet paper, I think that your knowledge, attitude and the way you make people feel so at ease is bang on. Keep doing what your doing, cause you definitely got the right stuff.

Alison Dyer

Paul, Joy - your hospitality is the best. So enjoyed staying at Rafting Newfoundland and running the Badger Chute. The chalets are going to be gorgeous... river in front, birches around, hot tub and more.. a delightful, winning combo

Arlene Dicks - St. John`s, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

There are many words to describe our rafting adventure: Fun, relaxing, breath-taking scenery. The chalets are beautiful and when all the landscaping is finished everything will look just perfect. We spent a relaxing Friday night with a BBQ and a fire outside. We spent Saturday rafting and it was a blast. Lot's of fun topped off with a soak in the hot-tub that night. Joy and Paul, you offer a first class resort. See you next year....

Dave & Roxanne - Gander, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

Our day started on the Exploits River. The water was high, the waves were big, the adrenaline was rushing! As we reached our take out point we began to anticipate the night ahead. We were heading to the 4 ˝ star chalets at Riverfront Cottages. As we rode down the driveway towards our home for the night, the sense of invigorating adventure of the days previous experience, quickly gave way to an atmosphere of relaxation. The luxurious cabins were such a welcome site, but what now? Hot tub? Campfire? Or explore a little with a stroll along the old railbed, past brooks, and quaint ponds. Further adventure will have to wait! We opt for a nice soothing soak in the jacuzzi, then a BBQ and refreshments with friends, all while taking in the majestic scenery from the deck overlooking the river. The friendly resident pooches keep us company while we sit back and take it all in. Later in the night we all gather round the campfire. Out come the guitars, and Paul plays a mean drum! Who could ask for more? I wake the next day to realize i pulled off a 9 hr unbroken sleep. The comfy beds make it hard to pull myself out of my slumber, but when the forest fresh breeze blows gently over my face, the guilt gets to me. OK, i'm up already! We finish off our vacation with a ATV ride along the Trans Canada Trail. Wish we had more time to explore, the trails and woods roads seem to go for miles in every direction. But that gives us reason to return...next time we'll stay longer! When staying here, be sure to take in the river rafting. A fun filled day with good food, great people, and lots of opportunity to get some great photos to show off to your not so fortunate friends. Thanks Paul and Joy, looking forward to our next trip!

We have been staying at the chalets for a couple of visits this summer, and have loved every aspect of the trip. The atmosphere is amazing, the chalets are beautiful, and the hospitality of both owners makes you feel right at home. Two of the kindest people I have ever met, and that goes a long way when travelling away from home. Evenings on the river are beautiful, the scenery, bbq, and hot tub give you a little taste of heaven. The rafting trip is amazing, and Paul and Mike are excellent guides and their professionalism gives you the security to really get the most out of your trip. I highly recommend staying here and would give the overall rating of 5 stars!!!

Rafting Trip

July 31st! Oh what a day! I felt like a kid again! Our family had the pleasure of enjoying the day rafting the Exploits! This was our first trip and certainly not our last! Right from the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a great day with great company, great weather and superb guides. The whole day was just perfect beginning with the introductions (ha!), the water canon fights, the badger shute swim; bull riding the surf; floating down the Exploits; the great relaxing lunch and oh yes rafting the rapids! We had a great time and will be back again next year…with lots of friends! We have shared our great day with lots of people…you may be hearing from them. Have an awesome summer! Thanks Mike and Paul for a great day on the Exploits. See you next year.
