Canoeing along a riverbank lets you get close to wildlife, much like sharing a strawberry with an elk. Share the great outdoors with this Groupon.

Dows Lake Pavilion

Year-round, Dows Lake Pavilion and the Rideau Canal—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—offers respite from the indoors with scenic views of the water and plenty of recreational activities to choose from. All summer, guests can take advantage of tranquility in the heart of the city as they meander along the waterway in a canoe, kayak, or pedal boat, while in winter, the pavilion provides access to one of the world's longest skating rinks outdoors for visitors to enjoy a unique skating experience. Three restaurants in the pavilion also help guests refuel in between activities.
