Ottawa Vacation Packages, Tours & Travel Experiences


  • Parliament Hill in Ottawa

As the capital of Canada, Ottawa has a powerful reputation to uphold, making it a great place to experience all the history, culture, and fun that the country has on hand. Parliament Hill, home to Canada’s impressive government buildings, offers you an exclusive look into the heart of Canadian politics. An exciting selection of seven national museums is scattered throughout the downtown core, including the National Gallery of Canada and Canadian Museum of History which are sure to delight any art aficionados or history buffs. 

Few locations in Ottawa are more iconic than the Rideau Canal, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. In warmer months, cruise along the waterway to take in a unique view of over 30 key attractions in the city. Stroll alongside its eight locks through picturesque gardens and parks, making it a great place to sit and picnic as you take in the local vibes. In the winter, the Canal becomes the world’s largest skating rink, lined with vendors selling hot beverages and BeaverTails, the sweet Canadian treat that will give you that extra buzz of energy as you skate under the dazzling lights while grooving to the music. 

In the spring, Ottawa draws colourful crowds to the Canadian Tulip Festival, bringing a breath of fresh air as outdoor festival season begins, welcoming musical and art celebrations of all kinds. Foodies will love Ottawa’s diverse dining scene, which celebrates Canadian classics and international flavours with plenty of craft breweries and distilleries nestled in between.
