Listen to the call of the water. With over 15,000 lakes and a dozen rivers, the call is strong here! There are lots of ways to discover our fabulous bodies of water. Choose your watercraft: canoe, kayak, rabaska, paddle board, hydrofoil, river board or pedal boat, and set your own pace. On a cruise or with a sailing school, explore the blue waters of the Ottawa River. Looking for a place to take a refreshing dip? We have beaches, water slides, and whitewater rafting! As you can see, in the Outaouais, water is a big draw.
