Ottawa’s Rideau Canal is the world’s largest outdoor skating rink, but it is not Ottawa’s sole seasonal attraction.
Enjoy a Beavertail as you stroll down streets lined with brightly lit trees, drink a hot chocolate as you admire a view of the Glebe from a local coffee shop, or entertain yourself with seasonal activities at Winterlude, Ottawa’s winter festival. Canada’s capital city has lots of activities to keep you occupied and merry all winter long!
Ottawa is one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world, with plentiful neighbourhood parks, waterways that wind through the city as well as historical and architectural landmarks. Ottawa also plays host to many visiting dignitaries, authors, artists, festivals and sporting events, allowing students access to events not always available elsewhere.
