Cross-Country Ski & Enjoy a Fabulous Stay in Gatineau Park
Are you looking to do something different during your winter getaway? Would you like to book a vacation that is fun for the whole family yet still offers adults time to indulge and unwind? Then travel to Gatineau Park, just minutes from downtown Ottawa, to enjoy winter wonderland at its best. At the Wakefield Mill Hotel, we are privileged to be located within one of Canada’s most beautiful and diverse national parks. Gatineau Park is also the cross-country ski capital of Canada. With two trailheads at our doorstep, our guests can strap on their cross-country skis and glide off on a full-day Gatineau exploration.
Gatineau Park is home to over 200 kilometres of cross-country ski trails. Beginner and avid classic skiers alike will fall in love with the park’s diverse slopes and incredible wilderness. Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and explore over 50 backcountry trails in Canada’s National Capital Region.
If you wish to spend your day surrounded by the beauty of an Ottawa winter, you will need to purchase cross-country ski passes unless you are one of our overnight guests. You can purchase your daily ski pass ahead of time online or pick them up when you arrive. An adult day pass is only $15, and remember to bring your little ones because children 12 and under ski for free. Guests who purchase our Cross-Country Trekker Package, Fireplace Package, XC Bed and Breakfast Package or 2-night XC Package will receive complimentary cross-country daily ski passes.
Our hotel gives winter travellers the best of both worlds. After your long day of sight-seeing and cross-country skiing, unwind in rustic elegance in our lounge where our friendly staff will greet you with hot chocolate and gourmet pub fare. To recover from a day of exhilarating exercise, ease your muscles in one of our upscale hot tubs that overlook the beautiful Gatineau backdrop and our hotel’s waterfall.
If you need to be revitalized and ready for another outing on the cross-country ski trails, the Wakefield hotel’s award-winning spa is waiting for you. Our talented spa staff will treat you to a relaxing Swedish massage or hot stone therapy. Whatever treatment you receive, we promise that you will be energized before heading back out on the trails.
