Best of Ottawa Bike Tour
From $87.05
Pedal through Ottawa to see the top sites of Canada’s capital city on this guided bike tour. The easy pace of the 5-hour 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.
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.

Great Way to Experience Ottawa

My wife and I had a great time on our day-long bike tour Ottawa. We saw not only a lot, but we learned a lot about what we saw. A good way to introduce yourself to city. We would recommend it highly.
