Ice Hotels

Funny time to post up a piece on Ice Hotels ?? - well, the season may be over (runs from around mid-December to mid-April, but the key thing is BOOK EARLY !! The coverage over the last couple of years means popularity has grown and there are plenty of disappointed punters who leave it too late.

So where are these amazing lodges constructed of frozen water known as Ice Hotels? - well there is one in Sweden, re-built each year and icehotels.co.uk has plenty of trips built around stays at that one, with Dog Sled Rides, Snowmobiles, the Northern Lights and Reindeer involved in the different trip options available once you are there.

Also, Canada is an option, Quebec to be precise, where there is an impressive ice hotel, inspired by the Swedish ICEHOTEL. Named Ice Hotel Quebec-Canada in Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier it lies about 30 minutes outside of Quebec City. Again, there is plenty of snowmobiling, dog sledding, cross-country skiing, ice-fishing and ice skating.

So, the message is, start thinking and acting NOW !! there are not that many Ice Hotel rooms in the world, and if you want to be surrounded by ice, with carved ice furniture and ice sculptures in your ice room, some of it in massive blocks that make up the walls, the ceiling and even the floor, and lit by fibre optic lighting, then you need to book ASAP.

Remember, your room is -5 to -8 degrees Celsius, obviously it has to be below freezing to remain icy. You spend the night in a specially designed mummy bag, lying on a slab of ice. So if you worried about the cold or are naturally cold blooded and feel chilly in the English summer, then maybe it is not for you !!
