This is simply one of the best and craziest experience of my life! We actually really slept in an ice hotel! And it was amazing! The place is awesome, the view is incredible and the service is impreccable! The staff is so friendly and kind that we felt like they all were our family! I highly recommend this!

We booked this hotel experience with Untravlled Paths. Dragos our tour guide was so friendly and took great care of us! In the evening he even sung a few songs for us as we all joined in with him after a few palenka's to drink! The tunnel trek was fun and worthwhile. We had fun participating in the snow activities...

We were taken to the cable car from our hotel in Brasov along with 11 others who were on our tour. The trip in the cable car was...

We just got back from Romania on an ice hotel experience with untraveled paths. We had the tunnel trek which was fun. We had dinner at the ice hotel which was a lovely meal. We had the Star Wars room. I didn't sleep very well at all but my husband slept just fine through the night. It was quite warm....

Definitely an experience that I will never forget. We booked through untravelled paths and I was very impressed with the company and all of the trip itinerary. The extra options were awesome fun; we went on the banana boat, the rafting, snow mobiles, tubing and I definitely recommend the tunnel trek which has unparalleled views of the mountains when you...

The Ice Hotel is magical and different, set on a glacial lake 2000 feet above sea level. Everything to do with hotel was made from ice, the chairs, the table, the beds.... everything. The food however and the service let the whole place down. They tried to charge 57euros for the meal but we were able to show them an...

The ice hotel is built every year by the cablecar station at Lac Balea. As the road (the Transfagarasan highway) is closed for 7 months a year because of snow it's only accessible by cablecar and consequently very quiet. At the lake you can stay warm in a neighbouring chalet hotel and there are snow and ice activities; within the...
