Day 2 Quebec City

A travel blog entry by kevinterry

Breakfast at the hotel. Spent the morning walking around old Quebec. Such amazing scenery of buildings from the 17 and 1800's and lots of snow. Temperature during the day was -6C but we were nice and warm in our winter gear. Went to the markets and bought some bread, cheeses and terrine for lunch back at the hotel. After lunch went on a tour to the …

Sleeping in a frozen zoo

A travel blog entry by wisconsin_fan81

Well, not really a zoo. The site of the Hotel de Glace is located where the old Quebec Zoo used to be. this gives them ample land while maintaining a location still inside the city, which is what they wanted. 550 tons of specially made ice and snow shipped in from Montreal is what the people use to make it. First they craft the shell in an …

Salut!
Samedi 13 février, nous sommes partis en direction de Québec pour visiter l'hotel de glace, voir ou revoir les chutes Montmorency, et assister à la parade du carnaval de Québec.
Nous sommes partis à 4, avec, bien sûr, notre fidèle compagnon Edouard, mais aussi avec Anaïs (une autre Anaïs au Québec, c'est pas banal!), qui est une amie …

Why my legs and I differ in our opinions of Quebec

A travel blog entry by kate99

I know I've skipped ahead a bit here, but it's my blog so I can do that. Besides I have a lot to say about Quebec City so I thought I'd best get started.

Quebec City has a lot of hills. That's why my legs don't like it so much. It all started with the walk from the train station to the hostel. I admit, the hostel's directions did say it was a 15 minute walk uphill but for some reason I wasn't expecting it to be that uphill. And ...

    Nothing here was overstated. No touristy degradations designed to make money. The design was not infected modern rooms with all the amenities the discerning guest expects. This, in every sense of the words, was an Ice Hotel. The entire building-every wall, every entrance, hallway, room, the chapel, the entire bar, the seats, were out of ice and snow. The rooms themselves had a thin but very comfortable mattress on top of a solid bed of ice with lighting built into the base that you can switch on and off. An information session teaches you how to sleep in the rooms-which include the use of a negative temperature sleeping bag, where to put belongings to prevent freezing, etc. This session is mandatory, even for locals because-as the guide Sophie put it-when sleeping in a hotel of solid ice, you have to forget everything you know about staying in a hotel. The only belongings you really want to bring in the room with you are your boots, snow gear, and whatever you want to sleep in (they recommend synthetics, we used under armor-style thermals) any electronics have to be kept in the bag with you, and the rest, except boots, goes into a waterproof bag. The bathrooms nearest the hotel are essentially heated port-o-johns, so use the ones in the celsius building instead. How was the sleep? Amazing. Seriously. It's expensive yes, but people who didn't think it was worth the money, probably didn't spend the money. It is SO worth it. (note: the address they have listed here is incorrect. It is at the old zoo this year, in Quebec City. Also city bus 801 goes nearly right there and is only 3.00 a ticket, saves a lot vs. the shuttle.)
