Every Canadian knows that once the winter months roll around we probably won't see much sunshine for about at least 5 months. It can get pretty dark, cold, and snowy during the Canadian winters but at this point, we're all used to it, even though we might hate it with all our might.
Even though the winter months can be pretty miserable weather-wise that doesn't mean they have to be boring! If you want to break out of your winter funk this season, there's a massive theme park in Canada that is calling your name!
The Valcartier Vacation Village is North America's largest winter theme park and it needs to be on your bucket list this winter!
The Valcartier Vacation Village is located just 30 minutes outside of Quebec City and will make for the perfect winter escape! This place is the coolest spot to be in the winter months and it will definitely bring out your inner child, no matter what age you are.
They've got 35 snow slides, forest skating paths, snow rafting, massive 80 km/hr tubing hills and mechanical lifts, a hot springs spa, an indoor waterpark, and they're home to the infamous hotel made of ice! If you want to make this escape into an entire weekend event you should definitely book a night in the Hotel de Glace, it will be unforgettable.
