Feb 27, 2018 · After surviving a night at Quebec's famous ice hotel, Hôtel de Glace, I've decided to share the answers to the questions I had in hopes of clearing up any mystery behind it, because the entire ice hotel experience is super cool and one you won't want to miss. Located in Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, Hôtel de Glace is near the airport and near the boardwalk. Club de Golf Lorette and Golf Royal Charbourg are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those looking for area attractions can visit Village Vacances Valcartier and Pourvoirie du Lac Beauport. Once the sun set and the property was dark the Ice Hotel exploded with color. I was in awe. Our tour guide Pierre was so informative. He has been a guide at the Ice Hotel for over 20 years. I am so happy our family took this tour. It was one of the best experiences we had while visiting family in Quebec City. Hotel de Glace, or Ice Hotel, offers plenty of different packages for couples, families, or friends. Visitors can spend a night in a real winter wonderland, surrounded by icy walls and crystalline sculptures, jump into a hot tub, or enjoy a drink in the ice bar.
