5 things to do this winter in the Outaouais

All over Quebec, we are invited to enjoy the outdoors and rediscover the attractions close to home, within our own region. In the Outaouais, choose from the many winter activities you can enjoy in an enchanting setting and spend beautiful moments on your own, with family or as a couple. Here are suggestions to suit all tastes!

Vélo d'hiver en Outaouais
Fatbiking in Outaouais

Bike, hike or trek through the Parc des Montagnes Noires de Ripon

Reach the top of the mountain on foot or with snowshoes and admire the breathtaking 360-degree view of the Petite Nation area. If you’re looking for more of a thrill, choose a fatbike rental and set off on the 24 km of groomed trails.

Stay in a mini chalet

In addition to welcoming you in one of their magnificent units nestled within the heart of the forest, HOM Mini Chalets invites you to put on your snowshoes or cross-country skis and explore the 75 km of marked trails belonging to the largest ski club in Eastern Canada.

Spend a night at Parc Oméga

The accommodations at Parc Oméga offer a unique experience thanks to their proximity to wildlife, allowing you to observe animals in their natural environment right from your bed. To round out your adventure, take to the trails on snowshoes or cross-country skis, practice your skating skills and see special presentations.

Have a day out in nature in Gatineau

To enjoy nature to the fullest, there is no need to leave the city! Two outdoor centers, one on the shores of Lac-Lemay and the second on the shores of Lac-Beauchamp, welcome you in the city of Gatineau for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or fatbiking.

Go for a skate in a charming environment

Less than 45 minutes from Gatineau-Ottawa, in the heart of Lac-des-Loups, is a 3-km trail of icy forest path that will enchant skaters of all ages. Lace up your skates and set out to discover the trails, where you can admire the scenery, birds and squirrels.
