Reasons People Adore Spending Wintertime Within Canadian Borders

By Olivia Harrison

People troop to Canada each year to enjoy the winter season. If the snow and fresh air do not get visitors hooked on Canada the exciting events like carnivals and sports activities will.

Winter tour packages to Canada have gone up which says plenty about how aware people are of place as a tourist spot. Available package options are combination and ski or city as well as special events. For skiers there is said to be nothing quite like Canada in terms of skiing adventures. Skiers are well acquainted with such names as Mont Tremblant or Banff and Jasper. Fly via helicopter to the Alberta or British Columbian mountain range or ski within the Laurentians or Quebec either the trip is bound to be memorable and the food delightful.

There is more to winter months in Canada than mere skiing. People in Canada love ice hockey and even have official and regular teams in its major cities. Ice rinks of both indoor and outdoor types are present in the country including one in Ottawa that measures four miles.

The snowmobile was first developed in Quebec and spread in neighboring countries but it still enjoys immense popularity within Canada. You will not lose your way as there are distinguishable trails created particularly for snow machines and there are also snowmobile clubs to sign up with. Have loads of fun snowshoeing as part of winter sports specials. Certain locations are intent on opening their own snowshoeing paths.

Icy Canadian rivers and lakes do not stop fishermen from doing the sport they love. All they need are an ice hole and a little shelter and they are ready for some serious fishing. Thousands of tiny tomcods are caught by fishermen while inside shacks dragged toward the ice in the small La Perade village in Quebec.

Most of the lakes within Ontario and other provincial regions have wintertime fishing available plus the necessary gear. Many like to engage in tobogganing activities. The toboggans are usually provided together with icy cold manmade chutes to ease the sport frenzy. A huge slide off of Quebec City presents people with awesome sights just as they are swooped down alongside the cliffs.

Tobogganing is sometimes held in some ski resorts using slopes reserved just for that activity. The winter months herald carnivals too as ice castles are made together with snowshoe and dog races while food and drink keep coming. Exciting adventures await people whether they attend small or big Canadian winter carnivals.

Among the most interesting events are international competitions that attract athletes from all over the world. The festivals are an opportunity to put the snowshoe classics and sled dog racing on display. Hunting for precious antiques or odd handicrafts in remote shops happens as usual whether it is summer or winter.

Indian art pieces and soap rock carvings by Eskimos are souvenir purchase favorites in most shops. For the culture minded, a ballet company performs at home and in other cities, the capital’s symphony will give about 10 concerts. Montreal has fine theaters in both English and French, there’s opera in several cities and a group of musicians from Vancouver is another unique chamber ensemble that delights thousands.

There are museums within Toronto and Saint John together with Ottawa and Vancouver that are open to everyone all year round. The more lively Canadian cities serve up nightly attractions from cool discotheque spots to chic clubs and hotels.

To escape the freezing or wet climate consider the Montreal city below the ground. From the most quiet subway Le Metro to the busy office and apartment complexes all these are linked with the hotels and shops as well as railway stations and theaters using miles long tunnels. Below ground development as a course of action has led such cities as Toronto and Winnipeg to explore the idea further. A jaunt off a snow covered path often causes feelings of elation for most visitors.

The fine food of the Atlantic province of British Columbia competes with the superb French cuisine of Quebec or the huge steaks of Saskatchewan for the tourist’s favor. Canada is clearly a place worth a visit or two.
