The remarkable venue is painstakingly put together from hundreds of thousands of tons of ice and snow.

Each year, Hotel de Glace is reconstructed with a new design theme, drawing in crowds of people eager to catch a glimpse of it. Everything inside is made from ice including the walls, floors, beds, tables and chairs. To keep visitors from freezing during their stay, thick bedding and seat covers are provided. With a total of 44 rooms including a chapel and a bar, the hotel provides something for everyone.

This year's theme for the hotel is "A Journey to the Center of Winter" which is inspired by the Jules Verne classic "Journey to the Center of the Earth". The hotel is due to open to visitors in March.

"Canada's Hotel de Glace, the unique ice hotel, is back this season for its 13th annual reconstruction."

I heard penguins give this place 9 out of 10. Fascinating.

I heard penguins give this place 9 out of 10. Fascinating. Last year, they gave it 10/10 after they drank the bar dry and the whole building collapsed.

The temp inside is between -3 and -5 C...BURRRRR Very cool cold! Nice place to visit, but a place for a wedding or sleeping? Sounds awfully cold to me.

I would go there (as long as the toilet seats are not made out of ice)
