After a kidney infection, lost passport, missed flight, and mad dash to the airport, Jeff and I somehow managed to make it to Montreal. We were a little late, but we were there, and we headed directly for Snow Village.
Set in Parc Jean Drapeau, a park located on an island in the Saint Lawrence River, Snow Village is a world away from the city. Upon entering the village, made completely of ice and snow, we were immediately taken to another, more magical world.
Comprised of an ice hotel, ice restaurant, ice bar, and ice chapel, the beauty of the temporary village wasn’t easy to capture in photos alone, which is why we made a video to give you a real feel of what it was like to be in this world of ice and snow.
If you can, before the season ends, I highly suggest making your way to Montreal to see it for yourself. If you can’t this season, make it a goal for next year. Having an ice hotel, let alone an ice village, in North America, is truly something special.
Don’t want to stay overnight in the cold? You can get passes to enjoy the facilities during the day and night. This way you get the experience without enduring the chilly night. Either way, Snow Village is a place everyone should have on his or her bucket list. Trust me.
A huge thank you to Montreal’s Snow Village for having me come up and stay overnight. As always, my opinions are my own.
