Hotel de Glace
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 theme 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 their popular ice slide. This huge slide will make visitors of all ages feel like children again. The magic continues all the way into our magnificent ice chapel, where couples wed every year. Round out your tour in the Ice Bar with a cocktail in one of their famous ice glasses.

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, black buttons and a ceinture flechee.
Activities include the snow bath, night parades, slide runs, outdoor cinema, giant table-soccer game, concerts, snow sculptures, 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.

Restrooms will be available but are limited.
