Interzip Rogers

The spectacular zipline Interzip Rogers connects the riverbanks of Gatineau and Ottawa. The concept of ziplining is nothing new, but one that crosses a river and unites two provinces? Unique in the world. Start your 395-metre descent from a 37-metre-high tower on the Ottawa side and soar to the Zibi site in Gatineau. The view of downtown Gatineau, the Chaudière Falls and Parliament Hill in Ottawa is spectacular. Plus, you get to take home a video of your thrilling ride with you. Wheeeee!

Éco-Odyssée Nature Park

The Éco-Odyssée Nature Park is a 70-acre marsh with a giant water maze that gives people a beaver’s eye view of the gorgeous flora and fauna. Three types of natural environments serenely co-exist: swamp, forest and agricultural land. The swamp, in fact, was created by dams built by beavers. Explore it by pedal boat, canoe or paddle board. Learn more about the environment through theme activities offered during the day or at night. On Friday and Saturday evenings, you can catch the multimedia show Éco-Noctura, which tells the story of Amik the Beaver. A must-see!
