Fun for the Winter: Axe Throwing in Ottawa Is an Indoor Activity That’s Fun for All

Winter can be a magical time of the year. Everyone is sharing their holiday spirit; everyone is organizing family get-togethers, meeting their old friends, and visiting family.

But when the weather gets wintry, it can all get pretty dull pretty quickly. You can’t really go outside to do much, but you don't want to stay home all day either.

What is there to do?

Well, if you’re looking for some fun and excitement this winter season, going axe throwing in Ottawa could just be what you need! 

Axe Throwing Basics

Unfortunately, many people have strong misconceptions about what axe throwing is. Many believe that it’s a violent activity for aggressive, butch men. But the truth is actually the opposite — as you’ll see when you visit Lumberjaxe Ottawa.

You’ll see people having fun, laughing, and just spending some good, quality time together.

If you’re concerned about safety, there’s no reason to be. We follow strict safety precautions and guidelines, and you’ll be much better protected than while playing darts, for example.
