So much more to explore!

Greater Madawaska Township, located in the Ottawa Valley, is the most picturesque and diverse tourist destination area in Eastern Ontario, offering opportunities for four seasons of outdoor adventure: alpine skiing to snowmobiling, flat water canoeing to fishing, championship golf to rock climbing, from mountain biking to ATVing. The options limited only by your energy and sense of adventure.

If relaxing is your preference, the sheer beauty of our natural landscapes is a joy to experience. Take a leisurely drive on the myriad of country roads, curl up with a book by the river, enjoy a picnic in one of our waterside parks, listen for the call of the loon, enjoy starry nights and reconnect with Mother Nature! Celebrate the end of an exciting day in one of our local restaurants or pubs, enjoying fine cuisine to simple home cooked food.

Be Careful! Our wealth of beauty, combined with an abundance of warmth and hospitality, inherent to the "Valley", just may convince you to make Greater Madawaska your country home.

Welcome! Enjoy! Take part in our adventure!

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are reminding snowmobilers that no ice can be considered 100 per cent safe to ride on with a snowmobile. This is especially true this winter when ice is forming earlier than usual in many areas and may look safe, but is not yet thick or strong enough. This ice warning also applies during any prolonged period of thaw or rain, and late in the season after ice begins to deteriorate from milder temperatures.
