Discover Winter in Ottawa
Ottawa provides the picture-perfect Canadian winter experience: snowy hills, outdoor ice skating, and lots of hockey! Experience all the fun this unique and exciting season has to offer by making Fairmont Château Laurier your warm and welcoming homebase in the heart of downtown Ottawa.
Every January, Ottawa becomes home to the world’s longest outdoor skating rink when 7.8 kilometres of the Rideau Canal freeze and become a hub for winter fun. Lucky for you, the start of the canal is right outside our front door! Take time to enjoy the unique and exciting experience of skating through a capital city.
