We have featured sets of some fairly bizarre hotel rooms before. But ever heard of a hotel made entirely of ice? Or one with with a stipulated lifespan? Hotel de Glace near Quebec City, Canada happens to be the first ice hotel of North America. The hotel has been described as a tourist hotspot (coldspot would have suited better) and is backed by Quebec’s tourism department.
The hotel is erected each January and has a four-month lifespan each year before being brought down in April. It takes about a month and a half to build with 60 workers. The hotel makes its own snow using a special mixture to adjust the humidity. The hotel is made of 15,000 tons of snow and 500,000 tons of ice and the walls are up to four-feet thick.
Amenities include a nightclub, movie theater, an Ice Café, indoor heated washrooms and outdoor hot tubs. There is also a chapel where weddings are celebrated. The Ice Hotel has been described as one of the “10 dream wedding locationsâ€.
