Every February, Canada's Capital Region is host to Winterlude, North America's greatest winter festival. Three fun-filled weekends of excitement and activity await the whole family! From spectacular ice carvings to an amazing playground made of snow, Winterlude is a great way to take in the best of our Canadian winter.
Skate on the world's longest skating rink - right in the heart of Ottawa! Marvel

the Ice Hog Family, are waiting for you in Canada’s Capital Region.
Something new this year. The creators of www.OttawaEntertainment.ca and www.Whatsup Ottawa.com bring you GPS race Winterlude Edition 1.0. The Challenging and interactive scavenger hunt takes you on a 3 kilometre skate with 10 challenges along the way.
