Quebec Has A Secret 12 Kilometer Forest Labyrinth Skating Rink

Get lost in a magical forest.
Quebec Has A Secret 12 Kilometer Forest Labyrinth Skating Rink

Ice skating is the most quintessentially Canadian winter activity there is. After hockey, of course.

TL;DR If you plan on ice skating this winter, keep in mind Le Domaine De La Foret Perdue approximately 2-hours from Montreal. Take a skate down their 12-km forest trail and visit their farm areas where you can feed the animals for a fun and unique outdoor winter activity.

There are several beautiful outdoor and indoor skating rinks in Montreal, but none of them compare to the beauty and excitment of skating in the fresh country air.

It's a total trip for the sense. You're enveloped by pure white glistening sheets of ice and surrounded by blankets of twinkling powedered snow as the pine trees soar over your head. There's nothing quite like being in nature in the dead of winter. The temperature is frosty but the movement required of skating will keep you toasty.

That said, if you plan on ice skating this winter, keep in mind Le Domaine De La Foret Perdue.

They took a mini Zamboni down a long and winding forest path and coated the entire thing with ice to create the longest ice rinks you've ever seen.

And you won't just be staring at trees the whole time. The path leads you to pens and farm areas where you can feed the animals, including ducks, sheep, deer rabbit, and ponies.
