Hotel de Glace - 12 Amazing Ice Castles & Igloos from Around the World - Bob Vila
Hôtel de Glace
The Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel) in Quebec is the first and only ice hotel in North America. It is rebuilt every year in December and lasts for just a three-month season. The month and a half building process requires 30,000 tons of specially formulated snow and 500 tons of ice. Those weary of cold weather should be wary—even the beds are made of ice.
