Overview
Pedal through Ottawa to see the top sites of Canada’s capital city on this guided bike tour. The easy pace of the tour allows you to enjoy the beautiful natural and architectural landmarks along the way. See many of the highlights of the city, the hip neighborhoods, waterways, and waterfalls, complete with a lunch break at a popular market stop.
Highlights
  • See the top Ottawa tourist spots during the leisurely paced ride
  • Visit some of the trendiest neighborhoods and stop for lunch
  • Bike rentals, helmet, water, and a snack are included in the tour price
  • Enjoy a view of the city from the Quebec side of the river
What to Expect
Your Ottawa bike tour begins downtown with a quick safety briefing after being fitted with the right bike for each rider. From there, your guide will lead the group along Sussex Drive (home to the official residence of the Prime Minister) to Rideau Falls. Following the Rideau Canal leads you through Old Ottawa South and the Glebe, two of Ottawa’s trendiest areas.

Continuing on the canal-side path brings the tour to Hog’s Back Falls, officially the Prince of Wales Falls, and some of the top agricultural attractions in the Ottawa area.

Stop for lunch at the Parkdale Market before passing into Quebec for a different view of the capital. Then head back downtown, past the National Gallery, ByWard Market, and Parliament Hill to end your tour back at the starting point.

Dear Jonathan, Many thanks for your kind words! Our full day tour is one of our favourites. Some may feel intimidated but with about 30k distance and lots of stop it is sure a great way to "introduce yourself to city" as you said it well. We are glad you chose to take this tour and enjoyed it. Warm regards, Maria :)
