Cold weather enthusiasts should consider making a trip to Quebec, Canada, this winter.

That’s where the Hotel de Glace will be located this year, a temporary hotel that’s made completely of snow and ice.

The hotel is rebuilt every year and is only open to guests for a few months; this year it will be around from January 4th to March 28th.

If you don’t think you can brave the 20-some-degrees temperatures inside the hotel, keep scrolling to catch a glimpse of what it’s like, from a (warmer) distance.

The Hotel de Glace was first built in Quebec, Canada, in 2001.

It's been recreated every winter since then.

The hotel is temporary and only lasts for a few months each year.

The construction of the hotel is no easy task.

The works starts in December, when the temperature has been consistently below 32 degrees Fahrenheit for a week.

The 32,000 square foot hotel takes 50 people about six weeks to create.

The snow used is man made; it's churned so that it's denser and more humid than natural snow.

The hotel has a total of 44 rooms.

Some more elaborate than others.

Warmth is essential considering rooms are a chilly 23-27 degrees Fahrenheit.

Rooms also aren't cheap -- they start at $199 per person.

But if you love winter and are brave enough to take the cold, the Hotel de Glace is a unique and beautiful place to stay.
