Iceboating is exactly what is says: boating on ice. Ice boats are only powered by the wind and need snow-free ice instead of water for them to sail. These boats are slick and glide across the ice by their skates and rubber plank. If you donêt fancy sailing one yourself then you could just take in the sights in an adjoining side car that can be carried for extra passengers. Because of their need for thick ice, the sport is most typically found in Europe and the northern states of America, especially on lakes that have been iced over. .
