Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
TakeTours is excited to announce the release of special tours to the Quebec Winter Carnival, which has been held annually for more than half a century in Quebec City, Canada. These festive winter trips are great for travellers of all ages, including families with children. There are even special Valentine’s Day departures for couples during the month of February. The 2014 event is running from Friday, January 31 through Sunday, February 16 and features parades, slide runs, concerts, snow sculptures, and dogsled rides.
One of the main attractions at the Carnival is the Ice Hotel or “Hotel de Glace,” a 44-room functioning hotel and wedding chapel made entirely of ice. The Ice Hotel tours departing from New York take guests to the one-of-a-kind building, which takes 50 workers using 30,000 tons of snow and more than 500 tons of ice nearly two months to build. It is the only ice hotel in North America, and is reconstructed every year specifically for the Winter Carnival. This impressive building is a perennial favorite for tourists from all over the world.
In addition to spending time at the renowned Winter Carnival, guests on multiday trips will be treated to other French Canadian highlights and sights. Tours to Montreal will have the privilege of visiting Mount Royal, St. Josephs Oratory, and a winery where ice wine is made. Tours include round-trip transportation from New York, New Jersey, or Montreal, as well as hotel accommodations.
Overnight bus tours embarking from New York or New Jersey depart on January 31, February 7, and February 14, and start at $176 per person; the one-day tours from Montreal run daily from February 2 through February 17, and start at $47 per person. Those interested in these unique seasonal tours are invited to book with TakeTours.com.
