Fall Adventures

Fall touring time in the Ottawa Valley!

Experience the crisp, cool peacefulness of the Ottawa Valley in the fall. As daylight fades and the seasons change, the wind’s gentle whisper can be heard throughout our forests. This is a time to feel alive! Let nature’s stunning palette inspire you as you the road less travelled.
 
  

Indulge in a smorgasbord of seasonal produce, meats and homemade delights at fall fairs, farmers' markets and Taste of the Valley events held across the region.

Corn as sweet as candy and pumpkins the size of giants are harvested for a feast of fun.

 

 
The Ottawa Valley is your destination for Countryside Fun!
 
The annual Rural Ramble celebrates rural living at its best.
Taking place from September 1st to October 31st, the region comes alive with studio and gallery tours, farmers’ markets, plowing matches, giant pumpkin boat races, corn mazes, chairlift rides and much more. Ramble from one community to the next as you visit carvers and tartan weavers, potters and painters, attractions and museums, farms and much more.
