America’s only ice hotel – the Hôtel de Glace – is a mere 10 mins from downtown Quebec. The hotel’s 36 rooms & theme suites are all created from ice and snow. It also features an ice bar, a cafe, a wedding chapel and a giant ice slide.
Over a 6 week period the hotel gets erected every year with construction beginning in early December using snow blowers and metal molds which are later removed.
The thick snow walls keep the temperature inside between -3°C and -5°C and arctic sleeping bags are provided to keep you warm as you go to sleep. They resist temperatures as low as -30°C so you’re sure gonna be toasty.
