Way better than a rental car


Take a detour into Ontario and take in the sights of downtown Ottawa, less than a 20-minute drive across the river. Countless shops and eateries await, as well as the iconic parliament buildings and Rideau Canal.

Champlain Lookout

Sitting atop the Eardley Escarpment, this vantage point offers a stunning look at the Gatineau Hills, especially in the fall, and is home to some of the most vulnerable wildlife in the area.


Take your Gatineau rental car north of Highway 105 to discover this treasure just above the River Pêche. Home to the historic Wakefield Mill (now a hotel and spa), Wakefield Covered Bridge, Fairbairn House Heritage Center, and all-season outdoor activities, it’s a charming destination well worth the drive.
