Quebec City just got real cool.

Actually.

Entering its 20th season, the Hôtel de Glace offers guests a hotel made entirely out of snow and ice because nothing says, “take that winter” by sleeping on top of it.

Located in the Valcartier area, 5 km north of Quebec City, the ice palace gets rebuilt every winter and features a different theme every year. In honour of its 20th campaign, this year’s theme is a celebration of the hotel’s history.

Hôtel de Glace is the only ice hotel in all of North America. The hotel has a three-month lifespan, is made of 30,000 tons of snow and ice, and its walls are four feet thick. It’s essentially an igloo on steroids.

All of the lodge’s furniture is made of ice and the bar serves drinks and cocktails in, you guessed it, ice glasses.

The hotel has 42 rooms total rooms, a beautiful Great Hall, sculptures, chapel, ice slide, and exhibitions.

To keep things extra cool, the hotel also makes its own snow. Just in case the Quebec winters aren’t harsh enough.

Prices start at a chill $399 a night and range up to $799 a night, including sauna, a private hot tub, and a fireplace for the premium Nordic experience.

Ice-dwelling hopefuls can visit the hotel’s website to book a stay from now until March 21, 2020.
