Ice Skate | Great Lakes Guide
  • Ice Skate

Ice skating is certainly one of the most popular winter activities. Whether you’re playing hockey, practicing your toe jumps, or strapping on a pair of skates for the first time, the Great Lakes region is the perfect skating destination. Skate along the Rideau Canal in Ottawa (the largest natural skating rink in the world!) for a truly unique winter experience. Or, head over to one of the Great Lakes’ parks to skate through the forest trails or on nearby ponds and frozen inlets. Whatever destination you choose, you are sure to find a charming spot to glide through the region’s unmatched winter scenery.

Our family have always had strong memories of boating, fishing, and swimming in the summer and then fishing and skating in the winter time on the creeks running into the Lake.
