Rideau Canal SkatewayweeklycubebreakWinterlude - Rideau Canal SkatewayhannahkgmRideau Canal SkatewayottawatourismRideau Canal SkatewaytouranjoRideau Canal Skateway

The 7.8-kilometre (4.8-mile) Rideau Canal Skateway (https://www.ottawatourism.ca/ottawa-insider/rideau-canal-skateway/) is Ottawas most famous skating site, as it is designated by Guinness World Records to be the worlds largest skating rink! Glide along the ice at your own pace from downtown Ottawa all the way to Dows Lake and take in scenic views of the city as you go. And dont worry about getting chilly along the way! If the weather gets frightful or you need a rest, just pop into one of the Skateways heated cabins. Cozy, warm and equipped with washrooms, these cabins are a great place to rest and change into your boots and/or skates. The Skateway is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week from roughly January to late February or early March (weather depending). It is completely accessible and admission is free. If you didnt bring skates with you on your trip, theres no need to worry. Skate rentals are available on the Skateway itself near the National Arts Centre (NAC), at the Fifth Avenue rest stop and at the Dows Lake Pavilion (hours vary by location consult the Skateway website (http://rcs.ncc-ccn.ca/information/rentals/) for details). Sled rentals are also available for non-skaters. Check the ice conditions (http://rcs.ncc-ccn.ca/) before you head out.
