Make the 83-kilometre trip from Montebello to Ottawa and embrace the cold weather! That’s what Food Columnist Janine MacLean did when she put on her hat and gloves and headed outside to enjoy Ottawa’s Winterlude festival.

Maclean: “As a winter destination, Ottawa offers a lot more than you might think. Parliament and government buildings compile most of the city’s well-known landmarks and the Rideau Canal snakes through the city, dividing it by east and west while to the north the Ottawa River divides Ontario from Quebec. During winter the canal is frozen solid and absolutely packed with locals and visitors honing their skating skills (although this year there was a mild patch in December and January that kept many skaters on the sidelines). While downtown Ottawa offers all the comforts of a major Canadian city, it doesn’t take much to find the countryside, and if you’re a skier you’ll find plenty of options for both downhill or cross country in the area.”
