Hotel de Glace

Hotel de Glace

A magical world that stands tall only from January - March each year, where snow and ice are transformed into fabulous sculptures. If you've never been to the Hotel de Glace, you're in for a real treat. It's a hotel constructed entirely of phenomenally crafted, sculptured sheets of ice. Impossible you say? Well, we thought so too at first but such a place really does exist. Each room within this magical wonderland of a complex (built with 15000 tons of snow and 500 tons of ice) are full of expressive innovation. Fab structures in the past have included a Hockey-themed suite, romantic suite for two with its own fireplace and spa, a spectacular purple-lighting-infused Gothic style bar, their famous Ice Bar where you can "cool off" with your favorite libation, and even a Gaudi-inspired suite with creative carvings in the artist's quirky style etched into the icy walls.

Theyre slated this year to bring back their greatest creation, a fantastic toboggan-like Grand Slide, running twists and curves throughout the property and delivering child-like euphoria to one and all. The hotel reopens each January, and the last day of the season is 29 Mar...so if you want to catch it you'll have to hurry or you'll miss it. Just like a snowflake, no two versions of this unique property are ever exactly alike...but that's the fun of it.

Obvious tip: Bring MANY layers of clothing...although the temps inside are warmer than one might expect, it's still pretty chilly!

About Quebec City

Quebec City is the capital city of the province of Quebec, rich in remarkable history, as the fortress capital of New France since the 16th century. Its vibrant historical centre makes for an incredible visit with a variety of sights including the Old Town (Vieux-Qubec), which constitutes the walled city on top of the hill. Many surrounding neighbourhoods, either in Haute-Ville ("Upper Town") or in Basse-Ville ("Lower Town"), are excellent day trips as well. Interestingly, the areas of Haute-Ville and Basse-Ville are connected by many staircases, all of which are unique, such as the aptly-named Escalier Casse-Cou ("Breakneck Stairs") and the more easily climbable "Funiculaire".

The city spreads westward from the St. Lawrence River, for the most part extending from the original old city. The true downtown core of Quebec City is located just west of the old city. Across the river from Quebec City is the town of Lvis. Frequent ferry service connects the two sides of the river.

Walking is a great way to get around the Old Town, as the compact layout makes distances short. You will see beautiful old buildings and little vistas around every corner. You will get exercise. Do be careful of uneven cobblestones and narrow streets, though.

Cte de la Montagne is a steep, winding street that connects Upper Town and Lower Town. If you get tired, use the Funiculaire to go between the upper and lower parts of the Old Town. $2 will get you from near the base of the Breakneck Stairs (l'Escalier Casse-Cou) back up to the front of the Chateau Frontenac. It is well worth it if you have small children or large packages.

For a bit of classic Quebecois charm, try a horse-drawn carriage tour of the city, a river cruise along the St. Lawrence, ice skating at the Place d'Youville, and a visit to the chocolate museum. Yum.
