Start your day by exploring a couple incredible trails that bring you to historically significant spots & a babbling waterfall. Drive time to the second stop is 8 minutes.
This 19th-century town is so charming that you'll definitely want to return. We've recommended our favourite cafes & eateries for you to relax in after your first outdoor adventure. Drive time to the third stop is 10 minutes.
Get your cameras out! This hour-long trail deserves a picture or two. Or, if you're travelling on a weekend and want to get up close and personal with some furry friends, pre-book a farm experience. Drive time to the fourth stop is 23 minutes.
End your surprise road trip in a quintessential village. If you want to keep going we've suggested a quiet countryside stop or a place to lace up your skates in the winter.

This made for a fun day for our family. We live in Kanata and never had much of a reason to go into Gatineau. Didn't know where this would lead us when we purchased it, happy that it felt "just down the road" from Ottawa. Found a great cafe we've gone back to a couple of times since. Nice exploring your own backyard and finding new things you can return to.
