Montreal is one of the few sub-zero places that can be described as ‘warm’ and inviting! With its’ French culture and British history, you’re sure to be won over by its charms. Renowned for creative architecture, Montreal embraces a range of genres from Neo-Gothic churches to the Art Décor Aldred Building to the almost space age Olympic Stadium and Biosphere (museum) in Parc Jean-Drapeau. There’s also a real passion for ice in Montreal – ice skating, ice hockey, ice cold beers (Les 3 Brasseurs microbrewery), ice sculptures and when it’s cold enough (which it always is!) the Ice Hotel. Here, even the chandeliers and ‘glasses’ in the ice bar are made of ice!
The innovative Ice Hotel is a perfect example of architecture and nature coming together as one. Each year the Ice Hotel is painstaking built with precision and style, with individually themed bedrooms and ice sculptures, including furniture. Well worth a visit, but make sure you wrap up!
