In the Outaouais, we have lots of reasons to get together and celebrate. Well party at the drop of a hat: we've built festivals around the fibre arts, sand, the fall colours, beer, tennis, wine, cross-country skiing, French fries well, you get the idea! At the Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello or the Festival de lOutaouais émergent, make the sign of the devil and practise your wicked air guitar solo. Slide, skate, and bite into a BeaverTail pastry at Winterlude and the Snowflake Kingdom. Be dazzled by spectacular fireworks at the Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light, and let your imagination soar at the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival. Mingle with fellow athletes at the Canadian Ski Marathon or the Grand Prix cycliste de Gatineau. And if youre travelling as a family, July is a great time to visit: its Family Month in Outaouais, with a whole raft of special activities for all ages. In Outaouais, every day is cause to celebrate!

Seeing a blue whale squeleton, a giganotosaurus and a tank in the same day is totally feasible. Embark on a journey through the wonders of nature, Canada's rich military past and an evening before the Northern Lights. And why not go all in and treat yourself to a helicopter ride? Gatineau and Ottawa look amazing from above!
