HORIZON X EQUIPMENT AND RAFTS
Alright, this is one of the many ways HorizonX sets itself apart from the rest. Our fleet of Maravia rafts are the sport cars of rafting. Our little red Ferraris are fast, stable and constructed of the best material. Plus with it's diminished tube technology they can pierce through the toughest whitewater.
Let's face it, some companies use big "bus" type rafts that hold from 10-14 people. Even though they are more cost effective for them; you are cheated out of a great river trip. Some even use big black rafts referred to as bucket boats, they weigh a ton and you have to take the water out with a bucket.
This is why HorizonX is the only company with a guarantee:
We will not put you in any raft other than our little Maravia Diablo 6-7 pers. Self bailing boats. Guaranteed!!!
The Maravia Diablo: One hot little Devil !
HORIZON X AVANTAGES

Small groups max 42 people
No hidden cost
Canoes and kayaks
Horseshoe and ball games
Daily shuttles from the Ottawa-Gatineau region available for groups and hotel guests.
HorizonX green program
Get free photos if you carpool to our base camp to the best ratio for you group. Horizon X is the only company in the rafting industry to offer carpool incentives.
Most of our guests are from Ottawa and the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). This means that our guests travel on average 200 to 1000 km from their homes to our base camp and back. Most people carpool between them to a ratio of 2 persons per vehicle. So do the math, this is a lot of GHG sent into our atmosphere. We can all do better and here is how Hx will help:
Our numbers are based on groups of 7 (one boat). Most cars hold easily 4 people plus luggage. So for a group of 7 people you should, in theory, need no more than 2 vehicles or less. We understand that not everyone lives in the same area but if we are to make an impact we have to make certain compromises that require some imagination.
