As summer hits the northern hemisphere like a hot blanket soaked in mosquitos, I find myself longing for something a little more wintery. It's also a hotel that's about as unlikely as the Kool Aid man entering through a doorway. The Hotel de Glace is a hotel made entirely of ice. No, stop checking your glasses. You read that correctly. It is a hotel made of ice. It's only open in the spring season, but it might be worth setting yourself up for next year already. I imagine such a hotel derives most of its appeal from novelty, since bedding down within an ice sculpture may be the coolest thing since Archimedes invented buoyancy, but staying for more than a few nights might leave you with a case of the sniffles. 

The hotel is available for nightly stays, tours and even for full wedding parties who are looking for the most exotic possible way to celebrate their union. Next winter, make sure to check out the chilliest of accommodations at the Hotel de Glace. For the summer months, however, you'll be better off sticking to Quebec hotels whose walls don't depart with the spring thaw.
