The Last Kilometer

The last kilometre of your adventure runs parallel to 50-foot limestone bluffs.

Our Gift To You: FREE exploration of the European inspired village of Old Galt!

When you reach the end of your adventure, we won’t herd you onto a shuttle bus.

Instead, you’ll receive a Pre-Paid Taxi Voucher good for four people so you and your friends can return to your vehicle whenever you chose. This option gives you all the time you want to explore beautiful Old Galt.

 

The Globe wrote, “Can’t afford to go to Europe, Old Galt is like a European village in Ontario.” It’s a beautiful limestone city.

Old Galt

Enjoy!

Old Galt is a lovely village full of charming cafes, lively pubs, and restaurants, historic mansions, heritage sites to explore, and all within walking distance. We even have a taxi pick-up point in town for your convenience at no extra cost to return you to your car.

Many movies and TV shows are filmed here

Fun places along the river to eat, drink & enjoy

Blackwing Cafe

Blackwing is a great cafe and bar in Old Galt. It's right next to our FREE in-town Taxi pick up point. Sit on the patio and enjoy a coffee or cold one.

LA Franks

Galt is lucky to have the popular LA Franks, the best hot dog & ice cream stand in the province. It’s right on the river and they even take Canadian Tire Money at face value!

Melville Cafe

A 5-minute walk across the next bridge brings you to Melville Cafe. It’s right in the Historic Queen’s Square District that now houses the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. They make wonderful wood-fired pizza.

The Blackshop

The Blackshop in Cambridge is one of our favourite restaurants in the area.

Solé

Another of our favourite restaurants nearby is Solé Restaurant and Wine Bar located in Waterloo.

Easy Pour Wine Bar

The casual Easy Pour Wine Bar is across the river from our launch site and a two minute drive from our parking area. You'll love the food, location and atmosphere.

BLUFF FALLS

Enjoy!

We hope you enjoy your tubing experience and exploring Old Galt and
thank you for considering spending time with us.
