Although we are surrounded by all kinds of unique meeting places, nothing compares to this magical ice hotel in Quebec. Located in Valcartier, it is said to be the only one of its kind in North America and less than three hours drive from Montreal.
From January, you can spend the day exploring the Hôtel de Glace, sleeping in one of the igloo rooms, relaxing at the spa, sipping cocktails at the ice bar and much more.
Mark your calendars, this snow-capped hotel reopens to the public on January 2, 2022. But if you are impatient to plan your visit, you can already purchase your future stay or one of the different packages available.
Did we mention that there is also a spa at the hotel? A visit to Aroma Spa, while you are at the Hôtel de Glace, will undoubtedly relax you and make you forget that you are in the middle of winter. And if that doesn’t help, you can always have an iced cocktail at the bar.
And don’t forget, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner too – it’s never too early to buy your boo their present.
It’s also a common place for couples to get married – and what a majestic place it is to do so. Obviously, romance is alive and well at this hotel.
A few cool and fluffy Quebec influencers have already paid a visit, like the iconic Christophe le Cochon, who looked ultra-cute in front of the wooden doors.
Address: 2280, boul. Valcartier, Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, QC
