The Quebec Ice Hotel is one of the most unique visitor destinations in the world. Unlike other hotels, this hotel is made totally of ice-even the furniture!

The owners rebuild the hotel every year, then are open to the public from January to the first of April. If you are wondering how it stays frozen for all that time, the walls are made 4 feet thick to keep the hotel cold at 28° Fahrenheit. Schedule a tour and get a drink at the ice bar, or you can even stay overnight.

Taking a walk in downtown St. John’s is an absolute must! Choose from an organized walking tour or just do one by yourself.

You’ll be amazed by the sight of colorful homes, and be in awe at the historic churches. You will regret it if you don’t bring your camera to take photos. Start your tour at Water Street, a street that’s over 400 years old. Next stop, the Military Road which holds the Basilica of St. John the Baptist. End your tour on Church Street, which is where the photo-famous colorful row of houses lie- did you know they were painted so colorful so that sailors would know which home was theirs?

This unique attraction can be found in the forest on Vancouver Island. When you arrive, you’ll see large wooden orbs hanging from the trees.

These unique tree houses are made to look like huge nuts, and the suspension bridge is made to look like a spider web by attaching it to different points in the trees. You use the bridge to get to the spheres and then climb a staircase to the spheres.

These spheres are made of wood and some fiberglass. Inside the curved walls there are tiny holes for windows. To save space, they made tables and mirrors that fold out when you need them, and the loft beds and benches are curved. The appliances are compact as well. If you feel daring, you can book an overnight stay for an awesome tree-house experience.
