Explore Ottawa through Alen Palander's lens
Popular influencer and constant traveler Alen Palander has over 790,000 Instagram followers who love to see his wide range of topics such as architecture, automotive, and lifestyle travel. The Toronto-based photographer and Youtuber was born in Northern Iraq and moved to Kitchener, Ontario, Canada at the age of seven. This may have led to his fascination of the diverse history, culture and traditions found throughout the world. Ottawa’s outdoor beauty, year-round activities and museums keep Alen coming back to Ottawa. His ideal food journey while in Canada’s capital includes a pastry in a ByWard Market bakery, lunch at Social Restaurant and Lounge, and dinner at Riviera.
