Welcome to Wakefield
Charming and scenic, historic Wakefield is an amiable mix of heritage buildings, cafes and tourist-oriented shops. Nearby, there are several outfitters who use a turbulent section of the Ottawa River for rafting adventures. Esprit Rafting, which is further out in the Outaouais, runs the rustic Auberge Esprit hostel, which includes breakfast and use of canoes and kayaks. Campsites are also available. Try Wilderness Tours or Owl Rafting for a mix of wild and mild trips. Both companies offer meals, camping and pricey cabin accommodations.
