Skate the Rideau Canal 2014

Skate through the heart of Ottawa! True to Canadian form, the winter pushes our creative buttons for new and exciting ways to get outside and enjoy the snowy wonderland. This creativity produced what has now become an annual tradition: gliding 7.8km (4.8 miles) along the Rideau Canal Skateway! Change huts, snack stations and hundreds of skaters appear on the Canal when the historic waterway freezes over during the winter. Experience this Canadian tradition with a cup of hot chocolate, sold at one of the on-ice shops, in hand.
