The best time to view the fall foliage in Ottawa is usually from the end of September to mid-October, and those who travel to Ontario will undoubtedly want to have their cameras ready to see the leaves change into spectacular reds, oranges and yellows. Ottawa's skyline will practically glow like embers when the sun rises and sets, and there are some parks where leaves boast the stunning kaleidoscopic colours.
The Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park is a great place to get a full view of the changing leaves, and at the top of the hill, visitors can treat themselves to uninterrupted vistas of the gorgeous Ontario scenery.
If travellers are looking to get in touch with nature, they should head to the Stony Swamp trails, where adorable and curious birds are more than happy to peck a few seeds from an open palm. Fall foliage lovers can also take a short stroll along the Jack Pine and Lime Kiln trails, which both weave through forests that will be ablaze with rich colours.
