Wilderness Tours' new family-friendly Urban Whitewater Rafting Adventure Ottawa City Rafting is a great way to get out on the river and see the spectacular sights. Launched in May 2014, the ‘urban' whitewater trip allows paddlers aged 5 to 65 to experience a 3.5-hour whitewater rafting excursion starting just 10 minutes' drive west of downtown Ottawa at Britannia Beach. Guests can experience Ottawa from a completely unique perspective, enjoying a guided, interpretive trip through Ottawa and Canada's living history. The trip will finish off with a full mid-river view of the downtown core, encompassing the spectacular Canadian War Museum and the Parliament Buildings.
This experience of sound and light is a thrilling thematic journey through Canada’s history. Combining bold digital technology with the architectural splendour of the Parliament Buildings, the show illuminates Canadian stories of nation-building, partnership, discovery, valour, pride and vision for a country.
