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.

"This was our 3rd Canadian holiday with Frontier Canada"
This was our 3rd Canadian holiday with Frontier Canada – we always come back to them as we know we will get a good quality holiday with no nasty surprises. Our latest holiday was arranged by Joanne, who provided an excellent service. She was able to advise us on which of their tours was the best fit for the sort of holiday we were looking for and then help us to tailor it to our exact requirements, changing flight days, removing bits from the suggested itinerary and adding others, arranging pre-booked tours and anticipating potential pitfalls (for instance when the ferry timetable changed, meaning we had to add in a night at Saint John as it was too long a drive to the next location). She really knew the area – even down to where we would get the best breakfasts by pre-booking at our accommodation and where we were better off going into town.
