Winterlude 2015

Posted by Brianne Perez on Nov 25, 2014 12:41:48 PM

Ottawa, our great nation’s capital, is an absolutely breathtaking sight during the winter months. The blankets of snow covering the Parliament buildings and the crystal snowflakes falling gently on your nose as you wander through the Byward Market all add to the majestic nature of this city during the winter. What better way to experience all the sights and sounds of Ottawa than by skating along the Rideau Canal?

Whether you decide to take on the 7.8 km ‘skateway’ by skates or by sleigh ride, this experience will surely not disappoint. If skating isn’t for you, many rest zones are located along the Rideau Canal, where you’re able to pick up some tasty treats, hot drinks (think hot chocolate with marshmallows), or warm up by a cozy fire. It gets pretty chilly in Ottawa, so taking advantage of the rest stops is a must! As an inexperienced skater myself, I’d have to say that these break stations are my favourite part. Plus, nothing compares to meeting new people, sharing some hot cocoa, and marveling at the genuine beauty of this city and its citizens.
