Canada is known for its breathtaking summer destinations, including pristine lakes, sandy beaches and lush mountainsides, but doesn’t get enough press for its destinations that truly shine in wintertime. Canadians know how to embrace winter and enjoy it to the fullest, and these top destinations are some of our favorites for showing RV enthusiasts a good time in the colder months.

Ottawa, Ontario

Exciting outdoor activities, delicious eats and serious Canadian culture make Ottawa one of our favorite Canadian destinations for warming up on a cool winter day. The city’s famed Rideau Canal is transformed into a 7.8-kilometer-long Skateway (which is also the world’s largest ice rink) from January through the end of February. And if you’re so lucky to visit the capital during the month of February, weekends offer the anticipated Winterlude festival featuring ice sculptures, kids activities, hockey games, traditional Canadian food stands and tons more.

Whistler, British Columbia

You don’t have to cozy up inside to endure the winter months. In Canada, you can get outside and enjoy them. Whistler, British Columbia offers some of the world’s best skiing and snowboarding at the famed Whistler Blackcomb Resort, and its virtually a winter outdoor play land for visitors of all ages. Even better, Whistler is just two hours north of Vancouver, so you can get a taste of one of Canada’s favorite cities too. Park at the Whistler RV Park and Campground and enjoy unbelievable views as well as free shuttle rides to the village.

Prince Albert, Saskatchewan

Indulge in an experience of a lifetime at Sundogs Sled Excursions, 65 kilometers north of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Sundogs is known for their adventurous sled dog excursions ranging from one hour trips to full days and overnight backcountry camping trips. A trip out into the wilderness with Sundogs Sled Excursions is a must for any RV enthusiast visiting Saskatchewan this winter.
