The Ottawa River Waterway

The Ottawa River Waterway has something for everyone. Extending for over 1200km, the river starts far to the northwest at Lake Timiskaming and flows towards Ottawa and joins the St. Lawrence at Montreal. Boaters traveling from the St. Lawrence can navigate the Ottawa River to Ottawa and then enter the Rideau Waterway.

From the excitement of whitewater rafting, to the unique experience of "wilderness boating" to the serenity of sheltered coves, the Ottawa River Waterway offers visitors a range of water and land based activity.
