The locals like to call it “running the Restigouche” and for good reason. The Restigouche River, a Canadian Heritage River, is a canoeist’s and salmon angler’s paradise.
Some of the best ways to experience the Restigouche include planning a river run (canoe rentals available from GP Canoe Adventure), or booking a classic salmon fly-fishing stay at historic Larry's Gulch lodge, a rare opportunity to fish in 8 km (5 mi.) of reserved water.
Running through the heart of the Appalachian Range, the Restigouche, Kedgwick, and Upsalquitch rivers are your best chance to connect with nature, stop for a refreshing swim, and take in miles of evergreen trees.
