We were indendant travellers to the ice hotel and found the experience an easy adventure.We booked flights with wizz air,hired a car and booked the hotel with booking.com.We found that everything ran very smoothly and saved quite a bit of money and we didnt have some tour guide following us around.
The hotel its self is fantasic and we managed to stay the whole night there,but it was quite cold.On arrival they give you two rooms one of which is in the warm hotel.If you were to change your mind though the other hotel is locked overnight,so you wont be able to get in.However they do supply you with warm sleeping bags.The ice tunnel was a bit of a disappointment,its very slippery but has a good view the other side.
All in all we found this hotel fantastic for the price,something to experience once in your life and were able to take some amazing photos whilst we were there.
