Inspired by the Boston Freedom Trail, this 3km red line will lead you to sights and attractions in Gatineau. The trail includes main attractions like Mosaicanada and the Canadian History Museum, public art, graffiti, exhibitions and shows like Cirque du Soleil Volta (until August 27th), guided and self-guided tours, and restaurants. Access the culture trail map here. Spend the afternoon exploring and then stop at one of the restaurants for a bite.
Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival
As someone who is afraid of heights I expected to be scared on a hot air balloon ride but it was the exact opposite, I found it to be a very calming experience! Go up in one and take in the view down below. Or you can also take in the view of hot air balloons in the sky from the comfort of solid ground. The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival has plenty of other activities like an amusement park, 1001 hidden treasures, meet the pilot, buskers, concerts and more! Join in on the fun August 31st to September 4th at La Baie Park in Gatineau.
If you want to feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated then head to Nordik Spa! Enjoy thermotherapy in world class facilities at North America’s largest spa. They also have a salt water floating pool, that is the second of its kind in the world, the other being in Switzerland! Treat yourself to the outdoor baths, sauna, relaxation areas, massages and more! Add to the experience and enjoy a glass of wine as you lounge in the pools.
