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...

More like hostel facilities. Resort was taken over by film crew which impacted on our stay. I thought it was a bucket list trip but it ended up more like the group needed the bucket on the bus as a bug seemed have been caught whilst staying and enduring the revolting toilet facility! Stressing facility singular between a group of...

Love it! Totally amazing views from top and a lot of fun! the hotel is pretty good, the tematic and the ice sculpture are nice. the way to get there by telecabina was long cause it was a lot of people and just one cabin. I reccomend to arrive early and have lot of patience.

As we arrived from the cable car the views and the set-up was amazing. The Lodge on the Lake was really beautiful. The activities inc Tubing and Rafting were great fun and we were really well looked after. The dinner in the Ice Hotel was great and the staff made the whole thing even better. The only thing that was...

02/03 Mar 16. Our access around the resort was severely restricted, the timing of our activities was totally engineered around the arrival of a helicopter and the crew's schedule/requirements. We firmly believe that the Ice Hotel should have closed the resort to other guests whilst the crew was in situ and filming. Extra snow mobile traffic to ferry supplies and...

We went as part of an untravelled paths package for 1 night. The location is amazing and the ice hotel looks the part. It's coming up on the end of the season so the church had become dangerous and we weren't allowed in but the rest was ok to be used. A few of our group opted to stay in...

We were fortunate that the weather changed the day before we got there and were able to spend the night in one of the igloos. Previous night the milder temperatures and rain meant that no one could stay in the ice rooms. We followed the advice for sleeping and had a really good night, not cold at all. The only...

Had a good time in Ice Hotel, only problem was the filming of Coors Light ad with Jean Claude Van Damme, therefore loads of people (film crew). Jean Claude was a true gentleman and had time for all. The staff at the Chalet restaurant left a lot to be desired, as a group of approx. 22 booked through Untravelled Paths...
