Best Time To Visit Ottawa, Canada

Best Time To Go To Ottawa

  • March-May: This is probably the best time to visit the Canadian capital. Even though there is some chills in the weather but still it is is ideal to enjoy the outdoor activities.
  • June- August: This one is considered as the peak season and hotel prices, flight rates shoot up during this period. Definitely not a good time for the people who are opting for a shoestring budgeted travel to Ottawa.
  • September- November: Autumn knocks at the door of Ottawa during this period and the weather is all pleasant during this period. But, this is an off season and escalated prices go down. Thus, a pretty good time to visit if you want to avoid unnecessary expenditure on the accommodation or travel.
  • December-February: An off season as the weather is too cold to go out and enjoy the various outdoor attractions. But still, if you want to indulge in some outdoor activities like ice skating, this can be a good time to visit Ottawa.
