Rideau Trip

The Rideau Cannel is one the most scenic and historic recreational waterway in North America. The Rideau Trip iPhone app enables you to plan the basic outline of your Rideau Cannel adventure with ease.  Simply choose the segment of the cannel you wish to explore and review the distance you will be traveling and the amount of locking you will be doing. Based on your schedule and your craft you can use online and printed material to plan your overnight stays. While on route you can use the app to determine the distance to the next locations and review other details. The application does not use network access so it can be relied upon any where on route.

  Select the your start and destination locations, check the travel distance and the amount of locking required.
