Departure Point

Salle du Quai du Cap Blanc - Anse Brown (Port de Québec) Departs January - April What To Expect 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 initial session on 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 St. Lawrence in the heart of Quebec winter.
