Collines-de-l'Outaouais

Just north of Gatineau lie the Collines-de-l’Outaouais (“Outaouais hills”), known for their pictures que villages and beautiful landscapes. Discover the charming communities of Chelsea and Wakefield, with their specialty boutiques, fine restaurants, art galleries and artist studios. Float your cares away in a giant salt water pool at Nordik Spa-Nature, North America’s largest spa. Spend a peaceful night at the Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa, a historic mill reborn as an elegant riverside inn. Navigate a water maze in a pedal boat at Eco-Odyssée. Zoom down thrilling water slides at the Mont Cascades Waterpark. You can also go biking, golfing, camping, canoeing, kayaking, downhill or cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing! Twelve months a year, explore Gatineau Park’s 361 square kilometres of natural wilderness, and take a tea break at the Mackenzie King Estate. Adventurous types can soar high above the treetops in one of our aerial parks and venture deep underground in the Laflèche Cave.
