Canada’s capital is not just known for its rich history and its vibrant culture. It’s not just known for its picturesque lands and tranquil waters.
It’s also known to have no shortage of things to do – especially during the winter months.
Here’s what to do in Ottawa:
Ottawa is home to Rideau Canal, a waterway that passes Ottawa River and connects Ottawa to Kingston.
During winter, Rideau Canal – considered to be the world’s largest ice skating rink, as well as the world’s second-longest ice skating rink (after Lake Windermere Whiteway in Invermere, British Columbia) – turns into a magical place for ice skating.
Ottawa is also home to a number of cycling routes, with Gatineau Park’s being the most extreme of all.
There’s also a sightseeing cycling route like the Capital Pathway Network that passes by the Rideau Canal, a family-friendly cycling route like Ottawa River’s Cycling Route that passes by the Canadian War Museum, and the mountain cycling route in Gatineau Park that passes through a whopping 90,000 acres of land.
Taking a nice walk has never been this exhilarating.
And no, I’m not talking about taking a nice walk in the park. I’m talking about taking a nice walk in haunted places like the Bytown Museum, which features audio tours on Ottawa’s rich history; the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, which features a grand limestone structure; and the Lisgar Collegiate Institute, which features an inspiring memorial hall.
You won’t just experience a simple rafting trip.
Whitewater typhoon wow? It’s not just going to make you say “wow.” It’s going to make you say “I want to do it again!” Ottawa’s River Run offers a 12-Passenger Whitewater Rafting Trip and a Family-Friendly Gentle Whitewater Rafting Trip.
