Explore Ottawa and Gatineau in an out-of-the-ordinary way: on board an amphibus!

Departing from Parliament Hill, you will roam central Ottawa discovering the capital’s iconic sites: the National Gallery of Canada, the National War Memorial...

You will then cross the Portage Bridge and head to the city of Gatineau. Your guide will show you all of the city’s must-see tourist sites.

The amphibus will then take to the water, from where you can see the Prime Minister’s Residence, the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica and the ByWard Market.

Your tour will end on land, back at Parliament Hill.
