You Can Zipline Across The Quebec-Ontario Border This Summer & Soar Over The Ottawa River

It's being called the "world's first interprovincial zipline"!

A new zipline in Quebec allows you to cross the Quebec-Ontario border by gliding over the Ottawa River, marking what has been billed as the world's first interprovincial zipline.

The Interzip Rogers experience starts at its 120-foot launch tower located on the site of the Zibi, a waterfront development that spans both Gatineau and Ottawa, along the two sides of the Portage Bridge.

The course is over 1,400 feet long, offering "360-degree" views of Ottawa's Parliament Buildings, Chaudière Falls and Old Hull.

Zipliners can travel at speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour, and the company says the experience takes between 45 and 90 minutes.

The online book system shows very few spots available on July 23, but there are plenty of openings through the rest of the summer up until October 1.

The Interzip also offers night hours so zipliners can fly above the water under the moonlight.
