After a year of absence, Village Nordik is back at Bassin Louise in the Port of Quebec. An original and safe activity not to be missed to break the monotony of the past few weeks.
From February 11 to March 7, 2021, the Nordik Village will be open from Thursday to Sunday, offering a unique experience to the population. Located at Quai Saint-André in the Port of Quebec, the facilities will allow young and old to discover and share the joys of the winter outdoors in an urban and accessible environment. Access to the site is in fact about twenty minutes on foot from our establishment and the journey can also be done easily thanks to the buses of the Réseau de Transport de la Capitale. A few paid parking lots are also available nearby, if needed.
For this fifth edition, registrations will be compulsory. They can be made in advance via their website (www.Villagenordik.com), or made on site upon arrival. Please note, however, that due to current health measures, the number of places available may be limited. We therefore invite you to reserve your time slot, at a cost of $ 15 per person for the exterior holes or $ 150 per igloo, each igloo accommodating a single family unit at a time. The rental of equipment and bait are included in this pricing, which facilitates and encourages the discovery of this activity for young and old. All you have to do is dress warmly to enjoy the joys of winter in peace.
In addition to ice fishing, the Nordik Village offers visitors free activities throughout its opening hours. Indeed, walking and snowshoeing trails and recreation or play areas adapted to the health measures in force will enhance the event. In addition, varied musical entertainment is on the program, and the collaboration of Tourisme Wendake also makes possible a few “Myths and Legends” evenings under the stars. Watch for the unveiling of their programming on the Village Nordik Facebook page.
Testimony of a past experience at the Village Nordik du Bassin Louise
On a more personal note, I must admit that I, for one, am very happy to have this event back this year. I was there for the first time a few years ago and really enjoyed my experience, although the fish unfortunately did not answer my call. The activity then seemed a great family outing to me, especially with school-age children. Just make sure everyone is dressed for the snow, pants included. Don’t underestimate the cold: sitting outside for a few hours can be dangerous for frostbite! Bring good gloves, boots, socks, and ideally a few “hot paws”, to be able to enjoy your winter outing, while keeping all your pieces! (A good thermos of your favorite hot beverage probably won’t hurt either …)
Lastly, I would add that the event appears to be a golden opportunity to catch up a bit for all fishing enthusiasts who have had to cancel their plans this year. Without having the tranquility of a few days’ adventure in the depths of the woods, ice fishing at Bassin Louise in the Port of Quebec seems to be exactly what we need to start the New Year on a more positive note.
