Tubing, planes, and chocolate

Outaouais, family, and winter. These words get along very well. You already know that in the Outaouais region, city and countryside are never far apart so you'll have no trouble enjoying the best of both worlds in the same day. Kids of all ages (even those over 18) will love sliding down the snowy slopes sitting confortably in a tube, especially after a nice meal and chocolate treats. End your day in the biggest dining room in the region with food from all over the world and the whole family will be ecstatic, and you won't have spent a fortune!

To start your day, stop at Miss Chocolat to stack on chocolatey delicacies that will give energy to your kids between slides. The Domaine de l'Ange-Gardien is a true winter fun haven! Apart from the slopes, enjoy the sleigh rides and the sugarshack that's on the premises. This day promises to be a highlight of your stay in the Outaouais region!
