WINTER IS FOR FAMILY FUN IN OTTAWA-GATINEAU
Family adventure awaits in the nation’s capital region! Stay with us at the Four Points by Sheraton Gatineau-Ottawa and save with our Family Getaway Package, starting at $215 per night for a family of four.
Ottawa-Gatineau is the perfect destination for winter and March Break! You’ll find ideal conditions for skiing, snowshoeing, skating, hiking and more. Plus, tradition comes alive in the region with sugar bush tours, the Winterlude festival and dozens of magical ways to celebrate the snowy season.
Our hotel is a short drive from Gatineau Park, the Capital’s conservation park and a natural wonderland. Learn about the region’s biodiversity or take to one of North America’s largest networks of cross-country ski trails. The hiking and snowshoeing are magnificent, and if you’re adventurous, you can even try snow fat tire biking!
Surrounding Ottawa are over 150 kilometres of Greenbelt cross-country ski trails. Your whole family can use the trails for free — and they’re suitable for skiers of all skill levels.
Camp Fortune is another favourite for families. Just a twenty-minute drive from our Ottawa-Gatineau hotel, Fortune has 24 runs for expert, intermediate and beginner downhill skiers and snowboarders. Lessons are available for all ages at the region’s largest ski school. The whole family will enjoy exceptional ski conditions in a pristine environment at Camp Fortune.
For skaters, there’s no place like Ottawa where you can lace up and glide along the nearly 8-kilometre Rideau Canal Skateway. From December to March, the outdoor Sens Rink of Dreams and the Landsdowne skating court are open 7 days a week, from early morning until late at night. Or step back in time at Rideau Hall’s historic outdoor rink, drawing skaters since 1872.
Looking for an iconic Canadian experience? See the fauna for which we’re famous at Parc Omega just inside Quebec. Beaver, elk, wolves, foxes, caribou, bears, moose, bison and more can be spotted from your car along a 12-kilometre safari route.
Quebec is sweet in winter and early spring! Experience traditional maple syrup making only a few minutes from Gatineau at Domaine De L'Ange-Gardien. Learn how this Canadian delicacy is made, sample fresh syrup, enjoy a traditional French-Canadian meal, entertainment and sleigh rides. With wooded trails and snow tubing, there’s something for everyone!
If you stay with us in February, don’t miss Winterlude on weekends from the 1st to the 18th Family Day. Ottawa’s iconic winter festival is a celebration of snow and ice, including the Snowflake Kingdom (slides, snow sculptures, mazes and more), the magical ice sculptures of the Crystal Garden and more!
When you’ve had your fill of fresh air, take in some culture with the Museum Passport Ottawa. You’ll get three days of unlimited access to seven national museums.
With so much to do in Ottawa-Gatineau, you’ll want to book multiple nights! And with the Family Getaway Package you can feel good saving when you stay at the Four Points by Sheraton Gatineau-Ottawa.
