Canada is known for having plenty of outdoor attractions, and Ottawa has its own fair share of these. Parks and conservation areas are aplenty here. These include Morris Island Conservation Area and Britannia Park and Beach. You also have other sights to see such as Mud Lake and Princess Louise Falls. What better way to explore these sights than by staying outdoors? If you’re not used to camping, worry not, because there are glamping options available so you don’t have to worry about setting up your own tent or getting lost in the woods. Check out this list of the best glamping spots in and near Ottawa, Canada.

1. Yurt nestled among pine trees

This may be the accommodation for you if you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of urban living. This yurt sits on a 100-acre (40.4-hectare) property and is surrounded by lush pine trees. The rental can accommodate up to four people. If you’re traveling with an infant or a small child, a travel crib, a high chair, and kids’ dinnerware can be provided, along with some books and toys.

A wood stove is available to help you keep warm, and you can also use it to prepare light meals and hot beverages. Snowshoes are provided if you’re staying during winter. Fun fact: there was a UFO sighting in this area in 1992.
