Ice blokarting on a frozen lake

Ice blokarting on a frozen lake

If ice skating on a lake seems far too sedate to you, skidding across the ice at high speeds in a small kart with a sail could be just the ticket.

In the Lithuanian winter, when the Curonian lagoon and other lakes freeze, locals replace the wheels on their blokarts with ice blades.

Baltic Adventure provides lessons for beginners and claims the ice blokarts are so easy to use, you’ll be self-piloting within minutes – and gliding silently across the ice with the wind in your face and a whoosh of adrenaline coursing through your veins.
