The Ice Hotel, Quebec, Canada
The Ice Hotel is a hotel built entirely of ice blocks, located in Canada’s province of Quebec. The Quebec Ice Hotel is, in fact, the only of its kind in North America. Although the hotel is built in a different place every year, it is located not far away from the center of Quebec City, and it is usually some twenty minutes away from the Quebec Airport. With temperatures of -3 and -5 C inside the hotel, the place won’t give you a warm welcome, unless your heart is brimming over with love or enthusiasm. Because the hotel’s walls are made of four-feet thick ice, temperatures above 0 C may seriously compromise the guests’ safety, as the hotel will begin to thaw.
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Looking to try something different? Visit Montreal on a weekend in winter and celebrate “La Fete des Neiges,” an outdoor winter festival with shows, ice skating, tube sliding, kick sledding and more. Then escape to a balmier climate with a visit to the Montreal Biodome. For family-friendly accommodations, try Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth—it’s connected to Underground City, the largest underground complex in the world.

Winnipeg is one of Canada’s largest cities and considered to be the “Gateway to the West.” It is part of western Canada and located near the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Winnipeg is also located near many lakes such as Lake Winnipeg and this causes the city to be a main point in transportation. All rail and road systems pass through this city as well.
