Height and heat

There is so much to do in Gatineau and Ottawa that we came up with 4 circuits for you to enjoy. Urban beaches, museums, nice restaurants, boat rides, bike rides or even helicopter rides, your stay in the city will be special but never dull. Most attractions are accessible with the STO's bus system. Let's split the day in two: a challenge in the morning and rest in the afternoon. Climb the wall of church converted in a climbing centre. Then, head to Saint-Éloi restaurant on the shores of Lac Leamy in the heart of Gatineau and let yourself relax. Bring a towel because right next to the restaurant is Centre de plein air du Lac Leamy. A beach, some sun... what more could you possibly want?
