The Outaouais, a region of Quebec that is also part of Canada’s capital region, is located one hour’s drive from Montreal and four hours from Toronto. Set at the confluence of three rivers, the Outaouais was an important crossroads for the First People of the area. Today, Ottawa, the capital of Canada, as well as the Outaouis itself, offers a panoply of attractions and events for all tastes. There is something for everyone: nature lovers, culture and history buffs, and party animals too!
