1. The Ice Hotel
Located in the heart of Quebec City , the Hôtel de Glace is a popular winter attraction. Unfortunately for those who prefer to travel in the summer, this year the hotel is only open until March 22.
There, it is therefore possible to visit the splendid ice walls of this ephemeral building; to have a drink or a bite to eat. There are also activities (for young and old alike). But as its name suggests, its main advantage is that it is possible to stay there for one or more nights (sleeping bags included!).
2. The Canopy Bed
A little over three hours by road from Quebec City (6 hours from Montreal ) is the Canopée Lit , a network of cabins perched in a verdant and wild forest of 23 hectares.
The estate has eight chalets in height and two bubbles (roof completely open) to allow you to live a few days closer to nature at an attractive price. And then the forest is just waiting to welcome you, it shows!
3. The Native American Longhouse
Located in the middle of a Huron-Wendat reserve , a tribe of Native American tribes that French settlers encountered when they arrived on the New Continent, the Longhouse was the traditional habitat of the Huron-Wendat before “meeting” the Europeans.
Even if it is possible to end the night in a more classic hotel room , the longhouse has some great surprises in store for tourists: ” a three-course evening dinner, myths and legends in the longhouse, tasting of Labrado tea, a keeper of the fire takes care of your dreams and the fires “, etc.
4. The Fishing Shack
A stone’s throw from Quebecville is the city of Saguenay where, in winter, it is possible to spend a night in fishing cabins on Lake Saint-Jean, frozen at this time of year, near the Fjord ( yes, there is also a Fjord).
In addition to having an incredible time in the middle of marvelous landscapes, it is also possible… to fish! Well yes, and apparently, it’s rather fun!
Well yes, who says snow, says igloo. But does it tell you to spend the night in these houses built entirely of ice where comfort is generally at the bare minimum? If so, then here are some good addresses here , and here .
Some already provide candles, an insulating ground sheet, but depending on where you book the stay, you may have to plan everything yourself!
Prices: from $95.
