Once a small lumber town, Ottawa has grown into a dynamic, multicultural destination full of world-class museums and beautiful parks and gardens.
You’ll find something awesome there during any season. In winter, the Rideau Canal becomes the largest skating rink in the world, and the Winterlude Festival brings an entire village made of ice.
When the snow melts, colourful tulips pop up, the sun shines down and even the fall foliage is beautiful. This beautiful, diverse capital city is where three rivers, two provinces and thousands of cultures meet. And you’re about the join them—with one of Wotif’s Ottawa car hire options, of course.
The towering Gothic Parliament buildings on Parliament Hill are right in the centre of downtown. Take a tour or use the buildings as a meeting place to begin your trip.
When you’re ready to head out, take your Ottawa car rental to the ByWard Market for some of the city’s best shopping. Here is where you’ll want to pick up that five-gallon drum of maple syrup to last you until your next visit. Pour some onto a beaver tail—Ottawa’s signature doughy pastry. Just across the Ottawa River is its sister city, Gatineau, where you can check out the Canadian Museum of Civilisation and the nightlife in Old Hull.
When you’re ready to expand your circle of exploration, arrange car hire in Ottawa to experience the picturesque artist’s town of Wakefield, just 35km north of Ottawa. Think our Ottawa packages are the perfect excuse for a ski trip? Us too. Greater Madawaska is just 100km to the west.
And if you want to experience two more great North American cities, extend your road trip to include Montreal (200km away) and Boston (680km). We’ve got Boston hotels for you to relax in when you get there.
