Canadian Winter Travel Destinations

Although many people think of Canada as prohibitively cold in wintertime, both the natural beauty and the culture of the country make it an appealing destination even when the air is chilly. Skiers flock to Whistler in British Columbia, though the area’s resorts have begun to court non-skiers as well with activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, and ice climbing. Aspiring mushers may also experience dogsledding through Saskatchewan’s Sundogs Sled Excursions, Outdoor adventurers also enjoy ice walking in Alberta’s Johnston Canyon or at Prince Edward Island’s Brookvale Winter Activity Park.

Ice skaters from across the world have enjoyed gliding down the 7.8 kilometers of the Rideau Canal in Ottawa, which opens the waterway to skating in January and February. Skating along the world’s largest skateway, visitors can view such marvels of architecture as the Chateau Laurier hotel and the Canadian Parliament. The attraction also serves as the center of such celebrations as the annual Winterlude. Events like the Quebec Winter Carnival and the Niagara Icewine Festival in Ontario draw visitors from across the world as well, while those who prefer to stay indoors can nestle into the comforts of Cambridge, Ontario’s Langdon Hall or any one of Montreal’s world-class attractions.
