THE RIDEAU CANAL AND CHAMPLAIN
The Rideau Canal flows between Ottawa and Kingston in Southern Ontario. These two cities are easily accessible by car and bus from Toronto (260km to Kingston) and Montreal (200km from Ottawa).
The Canal itself is accessible by car, on foot or by boat. The busy season extends from the spring to the fall. While the locks themselves are closed for the winter, you can do still skate, cross-country ski, snowshoe or ice-fishing on the Canal.
To learn more on the Rideau Canal, visit the Parks Canada website.
Explore the engineered and natural waterways of the 1000 Islands and UNESCO-designated Rideau Canal through some of Ontario’s most charming communities, including the united counties of Leeds and Grenville in Southeastern Ontario.
The Rideau Canal and connecting waterways meander over 200 km between Ottawa and Lake Ontario, via the famous 1000 Islands in the St. Lawrence River.
