Description

For the ancestors of present-day Quebecers, the ice canoe was a means of transportation between the shores of Quebec City and Levis during the winter months. No other place on our planet has a river of this size where the climate allows for solid ice slabs to cover the water surface and float with the ever-changing currents. As part of the ice canoe excursion, you will be able to row the waters of the St. Lawrence River and jog along the canoe over the crackling ice beneath your feet; all in the middle of the fantastic winter. You will have the impression of being on a giant treadmill while striding in front of a city boasting 400 years’ of history.

An unforgettable journey over the icy waters of the St. Lawrence River awaits you. Each excursion will be unique as it will vary depending on factors such as river currents, temperature, and ice conditions. The river currents reverse direction during the day, adding to the magical experience of ice canoe.

Ice canoe can be physically challenging, depending on the effort one devotes to it. One hour on the river is more than enough for an initiation session to this exciting activity. Your experienced guides will adapt the excursion and the itinerary to the physical condition of the participants. Each canoe will be equipped with two experienced guides and will accommodate three clients. Before returning to the departure point, the canoe will pause on an ice field where you can enjoy the view of Old Quebec City and delicious hot chocolate while floating on the river.

Your excursion will be filmed with a GoPro(R) camera worn by the skipper of the canoe. You will have the opportunity to leave with the video images of your experience on the St. Lawrence in the heart of Quebec winter.
