Things to Do in and Around Chelsea This Winter

Things to Do in and Around Chelsea This Winter

  • December 8, 2022

Every year, without fail, Chelsea transforms itself into a winter wonderland. From skiing to skating, staycations and spa days, all the way to cozy nights in, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. So, whether your favourite season has just arrived, or you’ll bid your time until spring, there’s sure to be some wintertime entertainment in and around Chelsea that’s perfect for you! 


Head over to Old Chelsea and treat yourself to something local at La petite grocerie 


Once the ice is ready, there’s no shortage of skating destinations in the region! There’s Patinage en forêt in Lac-des-Loups, the Little Penguin Trail in Cantley, the Ruisseau de la Brasserie’s rink in Gatineau and, of course, the Rideau Canal in Ottawa.  


Bring the kids or let your inner child wild at Parc Omega in Montebello.  


No shortage of activities awaits you in Gatineau Park this winter. There’s fat biking, snowshoeing, hiking and cross-country skiing! Need to rent some gear? Nomades du Parc in Old Chelsea’s got you covered.  


Warm up with a hot drink and a fresh pastry from Biscotti & Cie 


Hit the slopes at Camp Fortune, Edelweiss or Mont Cascades. If skiing or snowboarding isn’t your thing, try tubing at Domaine de l’Ange-Gardien 


Enjoy a winter wellness wonderland in nature and recover from all the winter sports at Nordik Spa-Nature.  



From December 21 to January 8, take in the Winter Lights Across Canada on Parliament Hill.

Book a little staycation at Lofts du Village 


And when the weather drops too low below zero, stay cozy inside with a puzzle from Habitude Design, a gooey Nordik baked brie and a hot cup of tea!
