The Hotel de Glace is just 10 minutes from Quebec City and is open from early January to the end of March. This amazing structure, built every year, offers you all the comfort you could possibly imagine in a magnificent building of ice and snow. The ceilings are up to 18 feet high, the walls are covered with artwork and the furniture is made out of blocks of ice. The Hotel de Glace has 45 rooms which vary from simple bedrooms to more exotic rooms with fire places and one that even has a spa! There is a chapel, a huge reception room with a functional fire place, and the Ice Bar. Relax in the outdoor hot tubs and sauna. Please ask us about special events at the Ice Hotel; we can arrange weddings or romantic packages as well as adventurous packages including some dog sledding.
We have included the Hotel de Glace as part of a longer stay in Quebec, exploring Quebec City and Montreal.
This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.
Ms Winsor - Travelled Rocky Mountaineer
"The Rocky Mountaineer was superb"
Everything went to plan and ran smoothly with planes, cars, trains and accommodation. The Rocky Mountaineer was superb and a great experience, so well organised and such good service on board. The selection of hotels we ended up with was an eclectic mix. Cathedral Lodge in Field was outstanding and by far the best in terms of location, style and service. Just out of this world although the Black Fish Lodge experience was equally good although quite different. Lovely people there who took good care of us with amazing wild life spotting opportunities along with the fishing.
I can’t thank you enough for your patience in the planning process getting the package together and trying to match to our specific requirements. You always understood the brief and were quick in following up options and so on. Not an inexpensive holiday for sure but so memorable. It will be very hard to beat.
