The Rideau Heritage Route stretches from Lake Ontario in Kingston to the Ottawa River along both sides of the UNESCO World Heritage designated Rideau Canal. It winds its way through historic sites, charming villages, quaint attractions and spectacular recreation areas, offering visitors a variety of world-class arts, heritage and recreation experiences. Visitors delight to discover how the Rideau Canal has been connecting communities along the Rideau Heritage Route for almost two centuries. The chain of lakes and rivers is joined by man made canals and locks for a distance of 202 km through diverse Canadian terrain including the solid rock of the Canadian Shield, marshland and pastoral landscapes.
