Frozen Palace of Snow and Carved Ice

Just north of Quebec City, Hôtel de Glace stands amid snow-covered hills like an icy citadel in a fairy tale. The hotel’s domes and columns have been molded from 500 tons of ice and 15,000 tons of snow—the same materials used to carve the interior’s sparkling chandeliers and one-of-a-kind sculptures. The structure is as intricate as a snowflake and as ephemeral: the hotel closes its doors by late March, and by the time summer rolls around, the frozen palace has completely melted away.

Upon arrival, you can sip welcome cocktails at the gleaming ice bar before taking a ride down a giant slide (also made of ice, of course). To warm up, head outside to the Nordic spa's hot tubs and sauna, which stay open from 9 p.m. until 9 a.m. From noon to 5:30 p.m., guided tours unveil intricacies of the hotel's construction. Ice-walled standard guest rooms have beds made from thick slabs of ice topped with wooden slats, a mattress, and Nordic sleeping bags certified for sub-arctic temperatures to help keep you warm and dry. As sunrise transforms the hotel's exterior into a shell of glittering crystals, the Celsius Pavilion's restaurant serves a piping-hot American breakfast.

Charlesbourg, Quebec: Winter Wonderland Minutes from Old Quebec

Just to the south of Charlesbourg, the walled district of Old Quebec, a UNESCO World Heritage site, features cobblestone streets and examples of 17th-century colonial architecture within its defensive ramparts. Be sure to visit the neoclassical Notre-Dame de Quebec to see its soaring nave adorned with gold molding.

The hotel should advertise that there is no restaurant for dinner. If check in is at 3:00, there's not too much to do after looking at the rooms until your room is ready at 9:00. The hot tubs should be open earlier.

FOOD! 1. would be nice to a choice of appetizers to munch on while you're "chilling" (pun intended) at the ice bar :) 2. i was an overnight guest. once you check-in at 3pm and have a tour of the ice rooms, there's not much else to do until 9pm - which is when the rooms and sauna become available. i would have LOVED if there was a fancier café/ sit-down restaurant serving pizza & pasta. it kinda defeats the purpose if you have to leave the hotel to find dinner.

Bring some socks and prepare yourself for an awesome time! I really enjoyed myself and there was surprisingly a lot to do. The ice hotel was stunning and I felt like a little kid in wonderland. Breakfast was awesome too! Perhaps if the snowshoeing area was lit, it would have been more enjoyable during the dark.
