Snow Village: Canada
Since we are already talking about Canada, let us explore another of the country’s beautiful snow retreats. Montreal is home to what is known locally as the “premier snow bunny spot.” Snow Village has something for every snow-minded adult traveler in your family. Guests can book a room in a polar igloo or stay in one of the ice suites, they can take a ride down the glittering ice slides and have dinner at the village’s ice restaurant, seated at an ice table and chairs.
Hotel of Ice: Romania
In terms of snow/ice hotels, this one is ranked as one of the best places to stay if you are seeking “an ultimate snow escape.” Located on a frozen lake in a mountain valley, guests have their choice of sub-zero rooms in the hotel or a private igloo located nearby the main hotel. The first ice hotel in Romania was constructed in 2005 and brought roughly 3,000 tourists to the town. Since that time the annual event has expanded to include an ice bar and restaurant to serve guests. In addition, the hotel offers traditional winter activities like skiing and ice skating and also holds ice bowling competitions. Information regarding bookings can be found at hotelofice.ro.
