Sleigh Rides in the Ottawa Region


Winter arrived this weekend with a few inches of snow on the ground. It’s a perfect time to start thinking about enjoying one of Canada’s favourite wintertime activities in the months to come: an old-fashioned sleigh ride.

It’s such a serene activity to help reconnect with nature during those cold winter months. There are many location listed below in the Ottawa and Outaouais region that offer sleigh rides, wagon rides, or hay rides. Bring a cosy blanket and a hot beverage and get bundled up to view a snowy winter scenery!  

Are you planning a family gathering or a birthday party? Many sites can accommodate groups and parties and offer meals and/or refreshments. For any bookings, I would strongly suggest calling ahead to make a reservation. Some locations are also farms or sugar bushes and offer guided tours of their facilities and taffy on the snow!

You can definitely make a fun afternoon with the family by going on sleigh rides! Call or look online to view the opening and closing times before you head out.  

Get outdoors and enjoy winter activities with the family!

    A horse drawn sleigh ride in the middle of winter sounds very romantic and very much in the Christmas Season.
