Love is in the air! And NCC lands offer some of the Capital’s most romantic settings. Here are some date ideas for you and your Valentine.

For the active couple…

Pack a homemade charcuterie board, and head out for a ski, a snowshoe or snow bike date. Stop at one of Gatineau Park’s shelters for a cozy snack in front of the fireplace.

For the history buff…

Grab a coffee and take a stroll along Confederation Boulevard to discover the stories of the boulevard’s past. Find the 12 utility boxes that are wrapped with images depicting the history and fascinating stories of buildings along the mile of history.

For the fan of winter…

A Skateway date may take place on ice (that our experts work hard to maintain), but the sparks will be flying. Cuddle up in one of our heated rest areas with a nice cup of hot chocolate.

For the young at heart…

Go tobogganing at Conroy Pit or Green’s Creek. Both are lit in the evening.
