Spring: Embrace the Great Outdoors

As the snow melts away and the temperatures begin to rise, spring is the perfect time to get outside and stretch your legs. Take a leisurely stroll along the Rideau Canal, explore the vibrant blooms at the Canadian Tulip Festival, or hit the trails for a scenic hike in Gatineau Park. With nature coming back to life all around you, there’s no shortage of outdoor adventures to be had in the springtime.


Summer: Fun in the Sun


When the sun is shining and the days are long, there’s no better place to be than outdoors in Ottawa. Cool off with a refreshing dip in the Ottawa River, pack a picnic and spend the day at one of the city’s many parks, or rent a kayak and explore the Rideau Canal from a whole new perspective. And don’t forget to check out Ottawa Bluesfest, the Ottawa International Jazz Festiva,l and other summer events for some outdoor entertainment!


Fall: Enjoy the Colors of the Season

As the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisp, fall is the perfect time to get outside and soak in the beauty of the season. Take a scenic drive along the Gatineau Parkway to see the stunning fall foliage, pick apples at a local orchard, or lace up your hiking boots and explore the trails in the nearby Gatineau Hills. And of course, don’t miss the opportunity to attend a classic fall fair or pumpkin patch event for some seasonal fun.


Winter: Embrace the Cold


Winter may bring cold temperatures and snow-covered landscapes, but that doesn’t mean you have to hibernate indoors. Bundle up and hit the slopes for some skiing or snowboarding at nearby resorts like Sommet Edelweiss or Camp Fortune, lace up your skates and glide across the frozen Rideau Canal Skateway, or grab a toboggan and zoom down one of the city’s many sledding hills. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, why not try your hand at ice fishing on the Ottawa River?


And there you have it, folks – our guide to Ottawa’s best outdoor activities for every season. Whether you’re soaking up the sun in the summer or embracing the cold in the winter, there’s no shortage of outdoor fun to be had in our beautiful city.
