This hardy Canadian dives under ice for up to 2 hours at a time
Magali Côté is an extreme freediver, who relishes the cold and discovering the beauty beneath the ice
Cold weather defines Canada, and many Canadians relish the cold. In this sneak peak, never-before-seen footage from the upcoming series Wild Canadian Weather, Magali Côté free dives … beneath the ice.
"When you break the surface of the ice, it's like time completely stops," says Côté. "If you're in that zen zone, you will experience things that you could never experience otherwise." Côté is one of the few people in the world who practice this extreme sport. While dangerous, years of training means Magali is able to spend up to two hours at a time diving in this frigid, silent and hauntingly beautiful world.
