Attraction

The Rideau Heritage Route from Lake Ontario in Kingston to the Ottawa River winds its way through historic sites, charming villages, quaint attractions and spectacular recreation areas. Discover how the Rideau Canal has been connecting communities along the Rideau Heritage Route for almostĀ 2 centuries, via a chain of lakes and rivers joined by man-made canals and locks for 202km. The Rideau Canal, along with the Kingston Fortifications and Fort Henry are now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Come cruise, paddle, hike, cycle and tour one of Canada’s best kept secrets.
