Have Fun In The Snow

The sub-zero temperatures that take over the Canadian terrain from December to February (and sometimes March) are no reason to forgo a family or friend vacation. Just plan your trip around one of these always popular Canuck travel spots.

Whistler in wintertimeWhistler/Blackcomb

As one of Canada's preeminent ski resorts, you'll find all sorts of awesome winter activities: skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, cross-country skiing, heliskiing, glacier skiing, snow tubing and, for those who'd rather stay warm, dozens of cool spas, including Scandinave (a natural hot springs spa).
For more information, visit www.whistlerblackcomb.com.

Quebec's ice hotel

Québec City's Ice Hotel

Built entirely of ice, the Ice Hotel is in the heart of Québec's outback and affords an extremely unique winter vacation. You'll eat and drink out of ice dishes and sleep on ice beds (with luxe animal pelts). Don't feel like spending the night? You can also take a short tour of the hotel.
For more information, visit www.icehotel.com.

Bonhomme Carnaval de QuebecWinter Carnival

The French know how to party it up in the dead of winter, as is evidenced by this yearly bash in Québec City. The biggest winter carnival in the world, there are dozens of winter events for the adventurous traveller to see: ice carving competitions, ice skating and igloo building.
For more information, visit www.carnaval.qc.ca.

Ottawa's Rideau Canal

Rideau Canal

Every ice skating fan needs to trek to this winding river near Ottawa at least once. Dubbed the world's largest skating rink, the skateway opens in late-December. There are plenty of treats along the route to keep you powered throughout the kilometre-long skate, including Canada's famous BeaverTails.
For more information, visit www.capcan.ca.


Much like Québec's Carnival, this outdoor festival in Ottawa features everything from ice skating to ice sculptures, a man-made snow playground, concerts on Parliament Hill by some of Canada's top artists and heart-warming treats, like hot chocolate.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
