The Upper Gatineau

(The Gatineau river, Maniwaki-Bouchette section)

8 class III-V rapids over 8 km of river

[...] this section is paddled by whitewater enthusiasts and it always leaves paddlers with a broad smile, once the butterflies they had in their stomach have dissipated.

Most rapids are class IV and IV-V, but there is usually an easier line, generally class III. This section is therefore accessible to well-supervised intermediate paddlers.
