Canada is a treasure trove of creative and quirky accommodation options for those seeking a unique hotel experience.

Hotel De Glace, Quebec City

The Hotel De Glace is built every year by students at Quebec University, made entirely from ice and snow. The hotel is closed for the season but will reopen in January 2024.

It is a one-of-a-kind experience in North America and even has an ice chapel where you can get married. The ice suites have themes including guitar, underwater, and dragons lair.

We recently stayed in a space suite, which had a massive jacuzzi and two TVs that you could watch from any angle in the room.

You will soon be able to stay in a medieval-style castle at The Hazelnut Inn, which is currently under construction in Yarrow, BC.

There will be a number of themed suites, including the North Star Suite, where you can stay in the “captain’s quarters of an ancient sailing vessel.”

You can follow the building process of the hotel online.

Entre Cimes et Racines, Magog

Entre Cimes et Racines translates to “Between Peaks and Roots.” The site has a range of forest ecolodges about an hour from Montreal.

You can live your Lord Of The Rings fantasy by spending the night in The Hobbit, an underground cave-dwelling inspired by the world of Tolkien.
