“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2009

Been meaning to get round to this for a while. Stayed at the Ice Hotel at the beginning of the year. Had a fantastic time - Balea Lake Ice Hotel truly feels like it's out in the wilderness, basically cos it is! Booked with Untravelled Paths who were great, very personable and helpful. Would throughly recommend for those who enjoy an adventure and something a bit different. Romania is great value to (not on the Euro).

my husband wisked me away over easter to romania and we stayed is this amazing ice hotel. i didn't know what to expect but had an amazing time there. what stood out most for me tho was the variation and contrast of our trip and the country, in just four nights we saw bucharest, a town called brasov (which was lovely) and finally the ice hotel. it was such a great adventure! the location of the ice hotel was stunning, quite literally above the clouds. i've had better nights sleep, but it was such a surreal, unique experience and so so worthwhile. we booked through untravelled paths, who i'd never heard of before but my husband had seen them mentioned on this site. they were great tho and they took care of everything, leaving us to enjoy our holiday. the only thing i would have changed, would have perhaps stayed an extra night or 2 in bucharest to recharge but unfortunately my husband had to be back at work. all in all tho a great trip and well worth a visit!

I travelled to the Ice Hotel with my sister in January. We booked with a company called Untravelled Paths, which a colleague recommended. We did their 4 night Ice Hotel trip, with an extra day in Bucharest. The trip is so varied, starting in Bucharest, passing though the very quaint Brasov before arriving at this truly remarkable Ice Hotel. Literally set above the clouds we had to take the cable car up there, it's a very pieceful setting with incredible views. Really does have a feel of a place that has yet to be discovered. Untravelled Paths were fantastic and took care of everything, including all the extra costs (such as the lift charges). We did a private trip, which was little more money, but still very reasonable, especially considering we had our own english speaking driver and four wheel drive car. If you want to go to the Ice Hotel, would highly recommend you use these guys, the hotels they selected for us throughout the trip were top drawer.
