Stroll Rideau Canal
The only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ontario, Rideau Canal opened in 1832 as a strategic shipping channel in the event of war with the United States. The canal stretches from Ottawa to the head of Lake Ontario. Its paved paths are a popular destination for bicycling , walking and even paddling during the warmer months. In winter, the canal transforms into the world’s largest ice-skating rink, and is one of the main attractions of the February Winterlude Festival.
