A number of well-travelled roads lead directly to the South Dundas region. Highway 401 extends through the area, with off and on ramps in both the East and West directions available, in both Morrisburg and Iroquois, respectively. The historic Highway #2 also extends throughout South Dundas along the St. Lawrence River. And finally, Highway #31, or Ottawa’s Bank St. will take you straight from Ottawa’s downtown core to our little slice of rural paradise.
Our region is considered an excellent cycling destination, with a variety of wide-paved shoulders on County and Municipal roads, with excellent opportunities for rest, food and drink, and exploring South Dundas along the way.
The famed Waterfront Trail, which extends from Lake Huron to the Quebec border, passes through our Municipality along the shores of the St. Lawrence River, making it an ideal route to get here from the East or West directions.
One of the more popular routes for south-bound entrance to South Dundas is through Stagecoach Road in Embrun, ON to County Rd #1, which will take cyclists into the heart of Iroquois.
Nestled along the St. Lawrence River, South Dundas is ideally located for boaters to access the region from the East and West directions, as well as from South of the border from the United States. A number of marinas and docking stations can be found in the region for convenient access to all that our Municipality has to offer.
Pleasure craft boaters can visit The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway for nautical charts, tolls, schedules, water levels and other information.
South Dundas even has convenient access to the area for aircraft, with two airports to allow for safe landings of small planes.
Morrisburg Airport is located adjacent to the famed Upper Canada Village and next to Upper Canada Golf Course. Operated by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, this airport is safely situated in an open field area along Highway #2.
Iroquois Airport is a privately-owned airport along the St. Lawrence River in the town of Iroquois. Located near a number of attractions, such as the Iroquois Campground, Carman House Museum, Iroquois Locks and more, this is an excellent access point to our Municipality’s visitor attractions.
Prior permission to land at the Iroquois Airport is required, and can be obtained by contacting John Ross at (613) 657-1646.
