The Outaouais region is a gigantic playground, and new activities are added every day. From the downtown core to the heart of nature, indoors and out, you’ll find plenty of things to do as a family, as a couple or with friends. It’s no exaggeration: in the Outaouais region, what we really need is a 10‑day week!

Rock faces and treetops

Go on a rock climbing adventure in the Outaouais region! At Contacts Nature you can go rock climbing and tree climbing under professional supervision. Once you’re back on firm ground, take time to visit the resident coyote, deer, crows, skunks, salamander and garter snakes: Contacts Nature is also a wildlife sanctuary.

Lighting up the night sky over the Outaouais region

Rated one of North America’s Top 100 Events by the American Bus Association, the Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light international fireworks competition welcomes some new countries this year! From August 2 to 16, Hong Kong, Canada, Portugal and Switzerland will vie for top honours in this spectacular pyromusical event.
