Tourists can still find plenty to do, for instance, visiting the National Gallery or the Museum of Civilization.

Spring and autumn can be great times to visit. The city is less crowded than the peak summer months, lower hotel rates are available as well as discounted flights. Although travellers won’t have to experience the cold winter, the weather can be unpredictable. Spring temperatures usually range from the 2-18°C, while fall generally welcomes 5-20°C.

Ottawa overview

Ottawa is Canada’s fourth-largest city, selected as the capital by Queen Victoria in 1857. The city is located on the Ontario side of the Ottawa river, opposite the French-speaking city of Hull and less than an hour’s drive from the border with the US. Ottawa itself is bilingual, with most residents speaking both English and French.

The city is home to the country’s parliament – housed in three spectacular gothic buildings perched atop Parliament Hill on the Westside of the Rideau Canal – and something of a cultural centre.

Museums, galleries and theatres abound, including the National Gallery, the Museum of Civilisation and the National Libraries.

Lying on the confluence of three rivers (the Ottawa, Gatineau, and Rideau), it is also one of the greenest cities in Canada, with many public parks and spaces as well as easily accessible surrounding countryside.

Its compact size makes it all the more appealing for visitors as most attractions are within easy walking distance.

Getting around Ottawa

Public transport in Ottawa is provided by OC Transpo (buses and the light rail O-Train). Driving is pretty easy and parking spots are freely available. Ottawa is a great city for walking and cycling too. Most of the sights in the Downtown area are within walking distance of each other. Taxis, tour buses and riverboats are all other ways of seeing the city.

Getting from the Airport to the City

The airport, Ottawa International, at which flights to Ottawa land, is well connected by public transport as well as by taxi and limousine. There are hotel shuttle and limousine services available to the centre of Ottawa. Buses depart from outside the Arrivals area. Taxis are also available.

Ottawa airport overview

Considering it’s the capital’s airport, Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International is not a big air field. However, travellers who have used it have nothing but praise for it. It’s a much-garlanded and admired airport. Among other awards, it was ranked number one in the world in the two to five million passenger category by Airports Council International in 2011. 

Macdonald-Cartier International is part of the busy air corridor between Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, known as the Eastern Triangle. Most of the flights that arrive at the airport are from other parts of Canada and the US. However, there is a London Heathrow-Ottawa route and one from Frankfurt too.

With more than four million passengers each year, it’s Canada’s sixth-busiest airport. Macdonald-Cartier International is a focus city for Air Canada and a base for First Air, the Northern Canadian carrier. It has United States border pre-clearance facilities, an important feature that can save travellers a little time.

What airport do you fly into for flights to Ottawa?

Ottawa (YOW), located 6.6 mi from the city centre, is the airport you fly into when you book flights to Ottawa.
