Unique in the world, ice canoeing is practiced only in Quebec and is part of the intangible heritage of La Belle Province. It is the most original and safe way to play on the St. Lawrence River in winter.

Formerly an essential means of transportation in winter, ice canoeing is now both a leisure activity and a colorful competition event, approaching extreme sport. Just think of the famous ice canoe races during the Quebec Winter Carnival!

This original activity is practiced in small groups of five canoeists who move on the water with the help of large oars and on the ice with crampons.
