Ice Roads

Posted Felipe's 2021 Adventure

Canada's first highways were the rivers and lakes used by First Nations peoples, travelling by canoe in summer and following the frozen waterways in winter.

There are only a few places in the world where you can drive your vehicle on an ice road. These seasonal highways grab the attention of the rest of the world, and have even inspired the TV series, "Ice Road Truckers."

Besides being an exciting experience to drive on, these roads have an essential mission. Rural communities depend on the ice road to bring all kinds of goods and materials that otherwise would be costly or require more logistics during warmer months.

I have been really keen to venture on ice roads, and I can finally tell my parents in Chile that I have crossed off another iconic Saskatchewan experience from my bucket list. 

Have you ever driven on the Wollaston Ice Road?
