The Territories

Wide open spaces and secluded corners of paradise, not far from a vibrant urban centre: the Outaouais has it all! The territory comprises four RCMs and the City of Gatineau. Quebec’s fourth largest city, Gatineau is a tourist’s delight, with its exceptional cycling network, gourmet restaurants and prime location near Ottawa. In the Collines-de-l'Outaouais, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the famous Gatineau Park, the ultimate destination for a variety of activities, and then kick back and relax in the picturesque villages of Chelsea and Wakefield. In Petite Nation, explore the area in a thousand and one ways. Whether you’re touring a wildlife park with your family or visiting the world's largest log cabin, every trip is sure to be memorable! For forests and lakes as far as the eye can see, the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau is the largest territory to discover, and it has the most outfitters. Finally, the Pontiac, with a rich history of logging, reveals the rustic charm of the Outaouais. Its rushing waters make it a prime destination for rafting!
