Québec's Hôtel de Glace is now open!

QUEBEC CITY, Jan. 7, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Saturday marked the official opening of the 2013 Hôtel de Glace! These past weeks of hard work have paid off, and the hotel is ready to kick off its 13th season, which extends until March 24. Its original design, awesome Grand Ice Slide, unique Ice Bar and great family activities are just a few of the reasons to visit this ephemeral work of art again and again.

With A Journey to the Centre of Winter as its theme, the Hôtel de Glace is designed to sweep visitors twenty thousand leagues away from home. This year's Hôtel de Glace features a very special guided tour behind its frozen façade : Behind the Scene. Visitors are, among other things, invited to visit the ice workshop, where they can make their very own ice glass. The Behind the Scene tour is offered Saturdays and Sundays by reservation only on the Ice Hotel website.

Starting with its Grand Opening night, the Hôtel de Glace has lined up cool activities and exciting special events all season long. Normandin spring break, DJ dancing at the Ice Bar and an old-time sugar shack ─ everyone is invited to come make the most of winter at the Hôtel de Glace!
