"This is a bad pic of the canal..." Skating the Rideau Canal Tip by Kentbein

Skating the Rideau Canal, Ottawa: 5 reviews and 2 photos


Favorite thing: This is a bad pic of the canal when I was there. The problem with going to a place with a new camera is there just isn't enough time for good on the job TRAINING!! But, look through the crumby camera work and you'll see people skating all over the canal having a great time.

The weather when I was there was beautiful. Just a shade or two below freezing, clear, clean, crisp and wonderful. Everyone was out enjoying the break from the winds that can whip through you, but turned calm during my visit. The days I visited, life was very good for everyone! They enjoyed it, and so did I. I’m anxious to go back.
