Tips from locals
www.ottawatourism.ca/ottawa-insider/rideau-canal-skateway/ Can't miss the opportunity to skate on the iconic Rideau Canal!
You can rent skates if you are travelling without them. Great spot to go to grab a beavertail as well!
The Rideau Canal, also known unofficially as the Rideau Waterway, connects Canada's capital city of Ottawa, Ontario, to Lake Ontario and the Saint Lawrence River at Kingston, Ontario. It is 202 kilometres in length. The name Rideau, French for "curtain," is derived from the curtain-like appearance…
Ice skate, watch the boats, attend the festivals - so much to see at this beautiful famous Rideau Canal.
