Ottawa River Waterway


There is a neverending supply of water-based adventure in Petawawa - canoe, kayak, SUP and various other water activities.

Check out what awaits you on the Petawawa River courtesy of Paddle Tales.

Formerly known as the Temiskawa waterway, the Ottawa River waterway has something for everyone. Whatever your travel plans - perhaps just a day of boating, or cruising for a week or two - the Ottawa's scenic waters are exactly what you've been looking for in a uniquely different boating adventure. Anywhere along the way you can nose into shore, pitch a tent and build a fire or dock at a marina and head to a hotel or even spend your nights at anchor.

Join us for a tour of the waterway as it winds its way from Notre-Dame-Du-Nord, at the head of Lake Temiskaming and then down the Ottawa River for almost 500 kilometres, to Arnprior, just outside of Ottawa.
