Autumn is a special time to visit Ottawa, as vibrant fall colours frame the Capital’s national sights, and Fall Rhapsody celebrations and activities attract thousands to nearby Gatineau Park – just a 15-minute drive from Parliament Hill in downtown Ottawa.
From October 1 to 23, 2022, enjoy Fall Rhapsody in Gatineau Park. Enjoy the spectacular fall colours on display and explore the unique and fascinating places that offer magnificent views – as well as being great spots to have a picnic in nature, take a walk in the woods or enjoy a bike ride. And, you’ll encounter far few people there during the week.
Complete your day at Fall Rhapsody with the Nordik Spa-nature wellness experience. Swimming pools, saunas & massage treatments at a wellness center modeled on Northern European spas. Take a break from your routine and enjoy the Nordik this fall!
Or for the more adventurous, there is Great Canadian Bungee Jumping near Wakefield, ziplining at Camp Fortune, visiting Parc Omega, in addition to all the best hiking and biking trails for those with lots of energy!
