The Hotel de Glace is just 30 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 30 rooms which vary from simple bedrooms to more exotic rooms with fire places and one that even has a hot tub! There is a chapel, a huge reception room with a functional fire place, and the Ice Bar. 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.

"We will certainly recommend Frontier Canada"
We will certainly recommend Frontier Canada to others – thank you for organising a very successful trip in which all elements liked together seamlessly. We had a wonderful time and we have returned home with some fantastic memories of Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies. I would certainly recommend this fly-drive trip to others, possibly with an extra night at the Alpine Meadows Resort near Clearwater, for a relaxing ‘wildlife-watching’ day by their lake!

The ambient bedroom temperature will remain between -3°C and -5°C, no matter the outside temperature.

You will also have a room in the nearby Hotel Valcartier for the night to store luggage, shower or even sleep if preferred.
