Ice Hotel

There's an upscale hotel all made out of ice near Quebec City. Basic rooms rates start at ~$200/night and deluxe suites can be up to $1,000/night. Some rooms have fireplaces (I know, kind of scary, uh?).

Every room has a different theme and features work of local ice sculptors and artists. Everything is made out of ice : bedside tables, sofas, beds, and even drinking glasses. There are deer skins on top of each bed, and they give you a goose down sleeping bag for the night. The only warmer room is the bathroom.

In addition to a nice hot tub outside, there are two adjoining bars with a dance floor and plenty of Absolut Ice vodka. There are art exhibitions in the main hall. Guided tours are available in French/English if that's your thing, but they are not mandatory. Admission prices decrease after 8 pm.
