The Ottawa River flows down from the north making up the border between Ontario and Quebec. Along this beautiful river are a number of small towns, each distinct in their own way and brimming with activity. The City of Pembroke is a thriving community situated on the Ottawa River, in the heart of the Ottawa Valley. Enticed by its numerous unspoiled beaches, bays and scenic routes, many launch their boats from the Pembroke Marina in pursuit of a variety of aquatic recreational adventures including sailing, championship fishing and sunset cruising. Over 1.5km of walking, cycling and running trails stretch along the natural beauty of the waterfront of the Ottawa River, from the Pembroke Marina to Riverside Park. A number of docking sites along the Ottawa River's charted waterways provides safe anchorage, comfortable accommodation and maintenance facilities. Nearby, whitewater rafting continues to attract enthusiasts from across North America.
To the west is one of Ontario’s Gems… Algonquin Park. Algonquin Provincial Park is the oldest and most famous provincial park in Ontario and one of the largest in Canada. Enjoy breathtaking scenery and the abundant wildlife while hiking or biking the various trails, canoeing, swimming or cross country skiing in winter. There are various avenues available for campers, from rough camping to campsites as well as some lodging.
Geared towards the outdoorsman, the Ottawa Valley is truly a must-see, must-hike, must-ski, or whatever you desire.
