Quebec City’s Hôtel de Glace has unveiled a new theme for 2024.

Under the captivating theme of “Historic Timeline”, the artistic team is pushing the boundaries of imagination to create a Nordic experience that celebrates the evolution of our world.

This year, visitors will be invited to take part in an immersive exploration through the history of life, music, fashion, video games, sports, exploration, writing and more.

A Nordic journey through time

Every room, every chamber, every corridor of Hôtel de Glace will tell the story of a period in history, from ancient to modern times. The ice sculptures will capture humanity’s most defining moments, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to experience a visual immersion of the past.

These masterpieces, meticulously sculpted from ice and snow, will offer a truly unique visual and educational experience,
where visitors can explore and discover important moments in many historical periods.

For more than 20 years, Hôtel de Glace has been a must-see attraction in the Québec City region.

Around 50 people work on Hôtel de Glace every year, on a site that takes roughly six weeks to complete.

The snow, ice and machinery crews, as well as the artists, who work days and nights to ensure that visitors are welcomed as quickly as possible.

The overnight experience at Hôtel de Glace will be offered starting Jan. 4, 2024. However, daily visits are expected to begin during the holiday season. The exact opening date will be announced in collaboration with Mother Nature.
