Sleigh Rides in Ottawa are a great way to enjoy the tranquility of the snow covered trails and a serene moment with your loved one while taking in the majestic winter landscape. Get all bundled and cozy under blankets with the snow crunching under the horses hooves and be transported to a simpler time.
Or gather a group of kids, your family and your friends and take a lively ride thru the forest! Top it all off will hot chocolate and you have a tradition that everyone should experience, young and old alike! Keep in mind that due to weather conditions, some locations offer wagon rides and/or hay rides instead of the traditional sleigh ride. Several of the location listed will also offer refreshments or meals as part of the excursion, and can accommodate large parties, but you should definitely call ahead or make reservations beforehand.
Our kids love this part of winter and we honestly feel that everyone should take part in this fun outing and get back to nature. Several of these places are actually functioning maple farms, where they collect sap and convert it into maple syrup. They offer guided tours of the sugar shacks, where you watch the process and get more detailed explanations for the tapping, evaporation, filtering and grading process of the maple syrup. And best of all, enjoy taffy in the snow!
