Unofficial nature museums in Ottawa
Ottawa is a nature-loving region known for its hundreds of kilometres of multi-use pathways, beautifully manicured city parks, and the impressive Canadian Museum of Nature. But the area’s rich outdoor scene can be explored in many other ways. Get adventurous by rafting within the city, taking a Canadian safari, ziplining between two provinces, and braving Canada’s highest bungee jump. Or relax by strolling or birdwatching in the Greenbelt’s rare ecosystems, paddling or cruising on picturesque waterways, hiking the hills, getting pampered at indoor/outdoor spas, experiencing authentic indigenous culture, and learning about agriculture and animals at local farms.
Whether you’re looking for an adrenaline fix or ultimate relaxation, Ottawa’s awesome outdoors will certainly inspire you.
