Quebec Winter Carnival
The Quebec Winter Carnival is the annual winter carnival that takes place in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. With close to one million participants, it has grown to become the largest winter celebration in the world.

Bonhomme (which means "good man" in English) is the official ambassador of the festivities, a large snowman sporting a red cap and black buttons.

Activities include the snow bath, night parades, slide runs, outdoor cinema, giant table-soccer game, concerts, snow sculptures, sleigh or dogsled rides, Ice Tower, skating and much more!

Please note no special access will be available for the mobility impaired because all sites will be outside. Nonetheless, to ensure security and site access, snow and ice will be cleared from all routes to the different activities.

Hotel de Glace (Ice Hotel)
The Hotel de Glace is a Nordic event that brings to life a one-of-a-kind experience combining fun and learning, with a focus on the magic of nature and the great outdoors.

A majestic icy sheen chandelier dominates the main lobby and has helped make a name for the Hotel de Glace. Their 36 rooms and themed suites will amaze you with their beauty and realistic sculptures. Wander through the galleries and exhibitions at the Nordic Arts and Life Festival and gaze upon one-of-a-kind ice paintings.

Learn all about how the Hotel de Glace was created and what it's like to spend the night in an ice hotel. Continue your tour to the popular ice slide.
