Canada's capital city, the centre of government, is a great place for shopping, dining, the arts and theatres. Outside the city, consider visiting Huntsville, the gateway to the Algonquin National Park lying alongside the rocky shores of Lake Ontario or take in the rolling countryside of Keene in the south.

Byward Market: Offering one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques, over 80 restaurants and cafés, a thriving nightlife and Canada's oldest continuously operating farmer's market.

Parliament Hill: Truly a must-see! The Parliament Buildings are set on a dramatic hill overlooking the Ottawa River. Guided tours take visitors through public galleries to the Senate and House of Commons (when not in session) and to the top of the Peace Tower, where an observation deck provides dramatic views.

The Rideau Canal: Ontario's first UNESCO World Heritage Site, winds its way through the city. The historic waterway is filled with boaters from spring through until autumn, while in winter it becomes the world's largest naturally frozen skating rink.
