This is the second time we have had an ice hotel experience. The first time was in Norway. Bang for buck this is an amazing experience in Romania! The Carpathian mountains are beautiful. We did this with Di and Jez of Secret Transylvania. They ensured that everything went according to plan.
There is a pristine feel to this part of the world in winter. We had an amazing group of people with us, so much drinking and merriment prevailed!
We did the trek through the road tunnel and came out the other side into Wallachia. There was much fun with an inflatable boat and a frozen lake!
The sculptures in the ice hotel are very pretty and the ice bar and ice restaurant are pretty spectacular to see!
If you are after an awesome snow/ice hotel experience this is the one I would recommend!
