This was part of a fantastic and enjoyable trip arranged with Secret Transylvania. What a fantastic experience to stay in the Ice Hotel. My friend and I stayed in the Austrian Room which was amazing warm sleeping bags are provided. We had dinner in the Ice Hotel which was average but worth the experience to sit at an ice table...

We came here for the last night of our 3 night trip with Untravelled Paths and what a perfect end to a wonderful trip it was! We spent the day enjoying the beautiful scenery and having a great laugh doing all the winter sports on offer. The tunnel trek was well worth it for the breath-taking views on the other...

We booked the 4 night trip with Untravelled Paths - like most people the real pull for booking was the night in the ice hotel & it didn't disappoint. The hotel was great, all the rooms are based on countries this year. We had Spain and there was a carving of a bull & matador in there. We both slept...

Stayed 2-3rd March. Great experience - sleeping on a block of ice! The ice hotel itself was amazing with intricate ice carvings, each room themed to a different country. The evening meal in the ice hotel was good, despite the location! Well worth a visit. Tour organised by Untravelled Paths and well looked after by Christina. As previous comments made,...

We stayed here for one night as part of a four-night tour with Untravelled Paths. The whole tour was excellent, and we really enjoyed our time at the Ice Hotel. We took the cable car up at about 11am, and back down again at 10am the next day - so nearly a full 24hrs up the mountain. We had already...

Amazing and different place to stay! Each room had different sculptures in them showing different countries. It was surprisingly warm sleeping there, you get plenty of blankets and a sleeping bag. We also ate in the hotel which was delicious and again something you must try! There are chalets nearby so if you wanted to stay in them, you could...

A friend of mine booked this trip and I hadn't read much about it so I didn't really know what to expect. My friend then decided that she did not want to go so I decided to go on my own. My fears at being the only person by themselves were soon out the window. Our Tour Guide, Dragos, was...

Booked with untravelled paths whom I strongly recommend. Hotel made each year from ice blocks taken from a frozen lake. Rooms are off the ice restaurant with 4 additional igloos next to it. Rooms -2 to+2 C but given good quality dry sleeping bags and not too cold. Great atmosphere but strongly recommend also booking a room in the nearby...
