For a Wintry Retreat – A Taste of Nordic Quebec:

If you’re looking for a picturesque winter wonderland, Quebec could be for you. A quaint province filled with European charm; French-speaking Quebec just oozes romance.

Your stay here begins with a behind the scenes tour where you’ll hear how the four-feet thick ice walls were constructed. This tour finishes at the ice bar where you’ll carve your own ice glasses and enjoy some of the coolest cocktails around. Why not enjoy a hot tub under the stars, or there’s even an ice slide if you’re feeling particularly playful! When it comes to settling in for the evening, it’s unlikely that you’ll have slept anywhere quite like it. Your mattress lies on a bed of ice, so snuggle up in the premium bedding for a night you and your partner will never forget.
