With 6 million acres of diverse landscapes, from waterways to woodlands, it’s no wonder why the Ottawa Valley region is known as “Ontario’s Adventure Playground”. This scenic part of Ontario offers breathtaking views with plenty of outdoor adventure. Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley are full of parks, activities, and cultural attractions for you to explore. With more than 900 lakes and four major rivers, including the Ottawa River, Ottawa is known as the Whitewater Capital of Canada. Ottawa Valley is also a great spot for winter getaways. Every winter, Ottawa plays host to Winterlude, one of Canada’s biggest festivals, and the surrounding region offers tons of terrain to enjoy your favourite snow sports such as snowmobiling, dog sledding, skating and skiing.
As the nation’s capital, Ottawa is one of the best places to discover Canadian heritage. Spend a day visiting the Parliament of Canada, Rideau Hall, and the Supreme Court of Canada. Further, no trip to Ottawa would be complete without a trip to Rideau Canal, Ontario’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. This scenic waterway is a beautiful spot throughout the year, and in the winter it freezes over to become the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink!
