I’ve done this twice and it was one of the most fantastic ways to start the year! Hundreds of people gather every New Year’s Day on English Bay to watch crazy/brave souls take a Polar Bear Dip into the freezing cold water. It’s a lot of fun and, hilarious to watch, but if you have close access to a hot shower (or even better a hot tub in your hotel!) I’d recommend taking the plunge yourself. It’s definitely an unforgettable way to say hello! to the New Year and as a hangover cure it’s unbeatable!
