    Rideau Canal Skateway offers the chance to get out with blades on your feet and glide across a natural skating rink as part of an iconic Ottawa winter experience.

It's been a landmark for centuries and is even listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    In fact, some locals in Ottawa even skate down the canal as part of their commute to and from work every day. This rink spanning nearly 5 miles is in the heart of city centre.
