5 Hotels Made of Ice Slideshow

Slide 1 of 5
Québec City, Canada: Hôtel du Glace

The only ice hotel in North America, Hôtel du Glace is located 10 minutes from downtown Québec City. Newly constructed every year, the hotel is made from 15,000 tons of snow and 500 tons of ice, and is open from early January to mid to late March. Choose from a variety of rooms, from the basic ones to suites with fireplaces and private spas. Each of the rooms features soaring 19-foot ceilings and furniture made of solid ice. While the room temperature remains between 23-27 degrees, you won’t be cold sleeping in a special Arctic sleeping bag atop a mattress-topped wooden bedspring. There are also outdoor hot tubs and saunas to relax (and warm up in), if needed.


Overnight stays begin at CA$235 ($237) per person, and include a cocktail, tour, overnight accommodations, access to the spa, and a hot beverage and breakfast in the morning.
