Cradled between the Ottawa River and Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario's Highlands, the Ottawa Valley is a place steeped in culture where you can immerse yourself in our unique blend of heritage and outdoor recreation. We are Ontario's Adventure Playground. With more than 2.4 million hectares (6 million acres) of pristine waterways, rolling woodlands and forests, our river and trail networks challenge and test the might and mettle of every explorer to our region.
Renowned as the Whitewater Capital of Canada, the Ottawa Valley is home to more than 900 lakes and four major river systems, including the mighty Ottawa, Madawaska, Bonnechere and Petawawa rivers. We invite you to raft, kayak, canoe, surf and fish in our water bounty and explore and discover our rocky, rugged, serenely dramatic and breathtaking landscapes.
For adventure and exploration, a romantic getaway or family holidays, the Ottawa Valley is your place to stay and play.
