Sip a cocktail from a glass made of ice, soak in a hot tub under the stars, bed down in a fantastical igloo hotel. Feel like you’re stepping inside a glacier. Marvel at a majestic lobby where statues, columns, even chandeliers are made of ice. Slip on a glove to pick up an ice champagne flute sparkling with ice cider. Meditate in a frozen chapel. Chill out at Hôtel de Glace and enjoy the sub-zero adventure of Canada’s coolest hotel, where warm furs cover icy seats in an Ice Bar where stools and tables are carved from the cold.
