Nestled just outside Québec City, where winter's embrace is both harsh and magical, stands an architectural marvel that defies the ordinary – Hôtel de Glace, the only ice hotel in North America.

Built annually with 2,400 blocks of ice and an astonishing 35,000 tons of snow, this crystalline sanctuary is a testament to the fusion of artistry and nature's frozen bounty.

Each winter, Hôtel de Glace is rebuilt into a different ice sculpture, offering guests a unique and unforgettable experience.

The hotel, aptly named "Hôtel de Glace" (French for ice hotel), boasts around 30 rooms and themed suites, each crafted with precision and imagination.

From the moment visitors step into this frozen realm, they are greeted by the ethereal beauty of ice sculptures and intricate designs that adorn the interior.
