Every once in a while Audrey and I work up enough courage points to try something we never thought we’d do. While in Quebec City celebrating Carnival, what better chance to try ice canoeing for the first time? After bundling up and strapping on ice hockey pads we grabbed our paddles with ice picks and bravely ventured off the shores of the Saint Lawrence River. When we weren’t rowing we were scrambling to get one leg outside of the canoe to skate along the ice.

Video Script:

All dressed and ready to go? Oh, yeah.

Taping them on.

So you look a little bit ridiculous. I feel like a robot. And you look like a robot. But these are actually our outfits to go ice canoeing, so we’ve got special socks, special boots and hockey pads.

I’m so excited to try ice canoeing. This is as Canadian as it gets.

These are large, medium, small.

My shoes.

Can you stand up? For a second. Put your feet like this. Like that on the toe. Yeah.

So we have a super exciting morning today. We are out here in Quebec City and we are going to be going ice canoeing. All geared up.

Practicing in the snow but we’re going to be hitting the ice soon.

So we officially survived ice canoeing on the Saint Lawrence River. If you can have a look behind me you’ll be able to see what exactly we were trying to canoe in. I mean it is a combination of ice, a bit of water, chucks of icebergs. It’s crazy!
