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.

"I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier"
Firstly thank you so much Jeanette for your hard work. The whole holiday was perfect the hotels, timing, planning, organised trips all happened like clockwork. Not once did we have an issue, problem or disappointment.
In facf the holiday was one wow experience after another. Your choice of hotels was exceptional. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The car, a wrangler jeep was hilarious and essential and I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. The itinerary worked perfectly with a great balance between trips that you organised and free time for our own plans. I have to admit I was initially anxious about some of the longer journeys on Vancouver Island but they were ok and when we arrived at the various destinations it was well worth the effort.
I found you on the net. Your early engagement with what I wanted was what encouraged me and as our relationship deepened I became increasingly confident that I had stumbled on a gem of a business. Having now experienced the holiday of a lifetime I would not hesitate recommending you and Frontier Travel
