Ice hotels are not new. There are a bunch in Scandinavia, but Scandinavia is far, and if I’m making the trek to Sweden or Norway, I want to go when it’s summer and the day lasts longer than half-a-second. Good news! I discovered an ice hotel in Quebec City, a short plane ride away from Washington, DC.

It’s called Hotel de Glace, and they have a fun 360 degree virtual tour on their website you should check out. The rooms seem to be exorbitantly expensive (my  quick search showed me rooms for $799 – uh, no thanks), but they do host tours of the hotel for cheapskates and people who hate winter like me. The hotel is only open from January – March, so we won’t be able tour the hotel if we end up in Montreal for Thanksgiving, but we can drive by and take goofy pictures which should count for something. It looks pretty awesome.
