When it comes to ice hotels, we just can’t seem to get enough. Blame it on the approaching summer or our plain fascination with all things “cool” for that matter. So after introducing you to the haute couture suite concept in Ice Hotel Sweden, we’re taking you through L’Hôtel de glace near Quebec City, in Canada.
Made entirely of ice and snow, L’Hôtel de glace or the Ice Hotel is only open three months. Moreover, open since 2001, it has been rebuilt every winter! Just think about all the design possibilities. If, like us, you find the thought exciting, you have got to see its interior.
Huge snow vaults and crystalline ice sculptures dazzle its icy universe. This year’s theme, in fact, explores mankind’s complex yet universal myths and legends. “This is truly an ever-changing, ephemeral work of art,” enthuses Serge Peloquin, Hôtel de Glace’s artistic director.
If you truly wish to experience this ephemeral luxury, you can do so with the Ultimate Getaway, a hotel stay package that includes everything from a personal valet and access to the Nordic area’s hot tubs and sauna under the stars to a night at Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations.
And did I mention, not just a room, a theme suite at the Hôtel de Glace? With Nordic sleeping bags for beds! Clearly it doesn’t get any better! So while there are romantic and wedding packages even, the Ultimate Getaway is available for $550 per person. And this year, you can avail it for just a few more days, until March 23rd.
