Winter Activities

Ice Skate on Canal

Skate continuously from Vieux Colmar, through Franche-Comte, through Bourgogne, up to the watermill or lock in Normandie. You may climb the hill and continue to Poitou where there is a large frozen lake. It is also possible to take the east river down to the other lock and skate in Aquitaine. Do not take the river on the west side because the ice is melted near the beach in Azur.

Skates are available at all three ponds:
Lac Poitou
Hospice Pond
Vieux Colmar Pond

Rez Sled and Explore

There are two sleds available. Try each one! The sleds can go anywhere, but please avoid getting too close to houses as you may be ejected.

Sleds are available at all three ponds.

Ski Cross Country

Cross country skis can be a fun way to travel. The animations are realistic and you can travel anywhere. Again, avoid getting too close to houses as you may be ejected. When using the skis, single click the forward button to walk through the snow, and double click the forward button to ski. Page up will allow you to jump.

Call a Horse Drawn Sleigh and go Shopping

The horse drawn sleigh can go to most locations in all 7 regions, although the horses struggle when going through Azur (roads are not frozen). After you are seated, click the horse and choose a destination from the in-depth menu. We recommend that you begin with Shopping and find something of interest, like Art. You begin by selecting a general area. Alsace and Azur are the furthest from each other. Aquitaine is near Azur. Bourgogne is between Alsace and Aquitaine. Then select a shop type, then a specific shop.

Sleighs may be called from any “Call a Carriage” sign post. The sleigh will usually arrive within about 30 seconds. Some posts may be found at:
Ville de Coeur – Harbor Square
Colmar Info Center
La Place des Lumieres
Hotel de Bourgogne
Coeur d’Azur Beach

Snuggle in a Cuddle Sleigh

There are black cuddle sleighs located in various parks. These sleighs have singles and couples animations. They are all PG.

Some cuddle sleighs are located near:
Vieux Colmar Pond
Lac Poitou
