Ottawa Voyageurs Walking Club Tulip Festival Walks

Dates:May 18-20, 2024
The Ottawa Voyageurs Walking Club annually holds three days of walks in
Ottawa so that everyone can enjoy the multiple tulip beds and the lovely
weather.
Cost All of our walks are events so the cost is $2.00 Cdn per walker. Please
try to have the correct change in Canadian currency if coming from outside of
Canada.

If you are travelling from the States or Europe

We recommend that you have travel insurance. The Canadian Volkssport Federation that we operate under, requires us to have all walkers sign a waiver of liability which we are asking you to do as you register for the walks. Historically, weather in mid May in Ottawa can be very hot and humid so bring a water bottle or two, especially if doing the 10 km walks, that can be filled up at Carleton University and at the Lord Elgin
Hotel. Or it can be rainy and cool, so bring appropriate rain wear. Port -a -potties
can be found at Dow’s Lake and Landsdowne Park. Check the weather forecast
before you come to bring the right clothes.

What to do after your walks or in the evenings ?

Your hotels will have a variety of pamphlets with suggestions such as visiting
Parliament Hill, joining a Hop on, Hop off bus tour, go on one of 3 different
Haunted walk tours or visiting all museums, the National Art Gallery, the Byward
Market, The Rideau Shopping Centre, and many restaurants along Elgin Street.
Transportation to the sites.

For those staying downtown, you can walk to the Lord Elgin Hotel from
your hotel. Check with OC Transpo for routes to Carleton University. Those with cell phones can download and app for the OC Transpo bus/train system called Transit from the the Iphone App store or the Android Apps.

Ice grippers on footwear can help you walk on hard packed snow and ice. But be careful! Grippers become dangerously slippery and must be removed before walking on smooth surfaces like stone or tile.
  • Use a cane, a pair of ski poles or walking sticks to help with balance

  • Use a cane, a pair of ski poles or walking sticks to help with balance
  • If it doesn't feel safe, don't attempt it
