Other destinations


Outaouais in French and Ottawa in English are both from the same Indian word. One wonders what it sounded like.


You will find in the Outaouais region a really bilingual population. You can easily get understood in French or English in most places, being so close to Ontario.

Get in

By Car

If you come from Montreal, you are likely to take either the provincial road 148 (on the Québec side of the Ottawa river) or the trans-canadian highway 417 on the Ontario side of the Ottawa river.

Get around

By Car

Driving in Gatineau and Ottawa is fairly simple. Finding a parking spot is not a big problem maybe except downtown Hull and even so... it is nothing compared to Montreal.

By Bus

By Boat

You can sail on the Ottawa and the Gatineau rivers and the Rideau canal.

By Bike

There are many bike paths in the region, especially in Gatineau.
