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 bus system. This circuit will take you aboard a very unique vehicle: an amphibus! It's a unique tour of the national capital on land AND water. Then, head to Centre de plein air du Lac-Beauchamp and enjoy an oasis of nature in the heart of the city. What to do there? Rent a canoe or kayak, take a walk in the many trails, or do absolutely nothing with both feet in the warm sand. You'll definitely need a chocolate-dipped ice cream cone after that!
