Ottawa-Gatineau Travel & Tourism Information

This section gives you all of the tourist information for Greater Ottawa and Gatineau Quebec, including city and Ottawa Valley attractions, accommodations, or city maps, as well as get-away travel from Ottawa.

Rideau River Rapids By Carleton University

The Rideau River and the Rideau Canal are not only strong parts of the city history, but they form part of the city's social fabric even today. In the summer, boating tourists navigate on the Rdeau Waterway to the Rideau Lakes and to Lake Ontario. And in the winter, civil servants commute to work, and students skate to school to two universities and a college on the Rideau Canal Skateway.

Get-away travel from Ottawa-Gatineau. Visit our sister site, TransCanadaHighway.com, for coast-to-coast travel info.
