Truly immerse yourself in all things Canadian, with a stop on your tour to the nation’s capital, Ottawa. Highlights include a trip to see Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal, shopping and dining, and of course Canada’s specialty...thrilling outdoor adventures.
Canada’s capital city is a destination which showcases and promotes the North American country at every turn, making it a fascinating place to truly immerse yourself in all things Canadian.
From the food to the history, the shops to the parks, you can marvel at Canada’s national treasures everywhere you go in Ottawa… just make sure you leave enough time to see it all! Close to many of the city’s most famous tourist favourites is the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, which makes an excellent base for your stay.
Attractions not to be missed while you’re in the city include: Parliament Hill, which is home to the country’s national government and where you can watch the changing of the guard and evening light shows; the city’s museums and galleries including the superb Canadian Museum of Nature; a culinary tour of the city with a stop at ByWard Market; a festival experience at one of the city’s many annual celebrations; a skate or boat trip (depending on what time of year you visit!) along the UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed Rideau Canal; and of course outdoor adventure in the scenic areas close to the city in the form of white water rafting, kayaking, hiking and biking.
With plenty for families, couples, adventure and solo travellers alike, speak to a Travel Specialist about your tailormade itinerary to Canada, with a stay in beautiful Ottawa.
