You can even take a Christmas sleigh ride across pristine white snow.

Day 1: Take an international flight to Ottawa.

Day 2 – 3: Ottawa is a winter wonderland at Christmastime. The lakes become skating rinks and the special Christmas markets have a lovely, rosy, festive feel. Ottawa is also a city that offers you a mixture of cultures. Eat out in the French restaurants, bistros and cafés that line the buzzing Byward Market area. Pop into an English-style pub, or spend time exploring galleries and museums – like the impressive National Gallery and the Museum of Civilisation – or stroll along the Rideau Canal, a World Heritage listed waterway. Your hotel – the Westin Ottawa – stands beside the canal, so it is the ideal base for discovering this great city.

Stay: Three nights in a deluxe room in Ottawa’s Westin hotel.
