Our region is as much a meeting place today as it was in the time of the First Nations and Voyageurs. With access to Ontario’s oldest provincial park, hundreds of kilometers of multi-use trails, great dining and incredible waterways and provincial parks Mattawa Voyageur Country will bring out the explorer in you.
At the joining of the Ottawa and Mattawa rivers and in the shadow of the mighty Laurentian mountains is Mattawa Voyageur Country. Historically, a meeting place by the First Nations People and The Voyageurs on long portages from east to west and north to south, Mattawa continues to bring people together at Canada’s crossroads, on the shoulder of the Trans Canada Highway (#17) and the shores of the Mattawa and Ottawa Rivers. For families travelling cross-country, for people who love off-road trails, for paddlers, fishing enthusiasts, snowmobilers, skiers, hikers and lovers of nature, Mattawa is the perfect place to stop, rest and take in all of the four-season glory Mother Nature has to offer. Come experience Mattawa Voyageur Country!
