    Car Hire Ottawa

    Ottawa Car HireHire a car in Ottawa in order to get around the city and enjoy the activities offered within the surrounding parks and mountains. Ottawa is the capital of the second largest country in the world and is widely considered to be one of the most scenic capital cities there is. With a culture that encompasses both French and English traditions, it is a North American city with European flair.

    Although it's not far from the city, you will need a hire car to reach the most popular and largest Park named Gatineau Park, a 363 square kilometre park. This park is only 20 minutes driving from the city centre but hiring a car is highly recommended to get around the wide green area due to its large size and poor public transportation to get there. Gatineau Park offers a wide variety of recreational pursuits. There are bicycle and hiking trails; swimming, canoeing, and kayaking on the river; and in the winter, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

    If you prefer downhill skiing, take your rental car and head to Mont St. Marie, less than an hour's drive north. Ottawa is also a burgeoning cultural centre and has several performance venues and a variety of world-class museums to visit.
