"experience the Rideau Canal at..." Rideau Canal Tip by BackpackNat

Rideau Canal, Ottawa: 7 reviews and 11 photos


Favorite thing: experience the Rideau Canal at any time of the year. In the winter the canal turns into the 'World's Longest Skating Rink' and is the focus of Winterlude, one of the biggest winter festivals in North America.

Fondest memory: Canadians came off as a very friendly people. Ottawa offers a relaxed, european atmosphere with tree-lined streets and unique little shops.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
