Mattawa is located on the Ottawa River. Most things which we recommend to the visitors of our web site are also practiced by us.
We want to see and learn as much as possible about the area which we visit without ending in a stress situation. Talking to the local people is very essential to get tips what to do and what to see.
Our visit to Mattawa was based on such recommendations and it was very relaxing but too short.
Mattawa has a population of about 2500. For this part of Ontario that means it is big which is in addition proven by the fact that it has a hospital.
Mattawa is located at the banks of the Ottawa River
We certainly want to return to Mattawa. Then we will stay over night to have more time to explore everything.
On the top of our activity list will be a day tour with the "Timber Train" Unfortunately, the operating company faced serious financial problems and probably we must cancel this project.
The Ottawa River is certainly another natural attraction which we want to explore
We did not miss to visit "Mattawa & District Museum". We were the only guests and the staff tried to help us and explain everything. I even was allowed to take pictures.
Unfortunately most of them are not very good.
It is a small museum but filled with many artifacts from the aboriginal people. It shows scenes from the live of the pioneers and also paintings from local artists, minerals and much more. Please visit it and make so your trip to Mattawa also a little bit educational. Even your kids will like it.
We were the only visitors of this really interesting museum
The museum displays many original items used by the natives as well as scenes from the live of the first pioneers and art from local artisans, minerals etc.
In the museum
Nature is still one of the main attractions.
Don't forget to collect the most actual tourist information. Everybody will gladly help you also with advice for accommodations, eventually even on a houseboat.
Visit the "Canadian Ecology Centre" which is located on Hwy 17 West.
Ask for more information in the tourist office. We would be interested in holidays on a house boat.
