Ice canoeing on the St. Lawrence
Ice canoeing is a unique activity practiced mostly in Quebec. During the winter, navigation on the St. Lawrence River is possible only with the relentless work of the Icebreaker ships. The combination of crushed ice and snow with ebbing tides create large patches of ice that turn the river into the perfect playground for an ice canoeing outing.
Each group is composed of five people including a minimum of two experienced Guides. Ice Canoeing is a physical sport that requires paddling large oars through open water as well as pushing and sliding the canoe over the ice with adapted crampons and a scooter technique. With everyone joining forces, the canoe can speed up to 20 km/h (12.5 mph) depending on the ice conditions! Not bad, right?
Relax and Rejuvenate at Strom Nordique Spa
Soothe those tired muscles after a long stressful day of travel. Echoing the cachet of Old Quebec, the Strøm Nordic Spa in Old Quebec lends itself to the timeless elegance of winter, offering a welcome respite on the arrival of cooler days.
You will have the opportunity to enjoy the baths and a spa service. You will be able to pick from a selection during the registration process.
Ice Climbing at Montmorency Falls
Montmorency Falls Park offers one of the most classic ice climbs in Canada and one of the most-climbed ice routes in Quebec.
The 120-metre wall of ice is only a 10-minute drive from Quebec City and an easy five-minute approach. There are a number of routes up the south-east facing wall.
The rock around the falls mark the eastern end of the Canadian Shield which formed one-billion years ago.
This activity is meant for all ability levels. Find your sense of adventure and try a new and unique sport!
