We have just returned from 5 days in Romania we spent one night at the Ice Hotel at Balea Lac and it was amazing. Each room has it’s own theme we stayed in the Jaws room, it is cold as you would expect but the sleeping bags provided are more than enough to deal with the cold. We had dinner...

This hotel is a great experience and I would definitely recommend people try it for a night! The chalet rooms were cosy and good to have as a backup if you couldn’t handle the cold. We stayed in an igloo which was spacious and once wrapped up wasn’t too cold. We slept through until 7:30am with no problems. The ice...

The cable car over was an experience in itself. Obviously very cold and not the best nights sleep either. Looks very pretty though and yes the statues are not as good as other Ice Hotels I have visited. Very slippery sometimes inside and in the surrounding areas. obviously not cheap for drinks or food.

We visited the Ice Hotel with Untravelled Paths over the new year 2016/17. We actually spent NYE at the hotel. It was fabulous. Not only was the weather very kind to us but the organisation of the trip and the Romanian people made the experience a once in a lifetime. You have to be tough (or very full of alcohol)...

Marius our guide met us at the airport, and was with us for the whole trip. He was a very good guide, excellent English, interesting, funny and was very knowledgeable about the places we...

Ok so let's address the first 2 things which came to my mind before I booked this, no 1, Romania, you're serious, the only thing to home out of there are gypsies and dodgy cars, and I'm not interested in meeting gypsies in dodgy cars. No 2, it's dangerous, we had no such experiences, you can go anywhere in Europe...

The whole trip organised by Untravelled paths was brilliant. Hotels, transfers, guides, all top class. Value for money this was one of the best trips I have ever been on. Loved the stay at the Rembrandt hotel in Bucharest.

We are just back from an amazing trip with Untravelled Paths to Peles and Bran Castles topped by a nights stay in the Ice Hotel high in the Fagaras mountains. We had an amazing host in Dragos who not only looked after us but sung for us and got us Romanian dancing as well to warm us up prior to...

Enjoying a once in a lifetime stay at Transylvania’s Ice Hotel. In the morning, we drifted through the clouds as we ascended the Faragas Mountains by cable car up to the magical Ice Hotel past snow-capped peaks and frosty forestland. In the evening, we braced ourselves for dinner ‘on ice’ with a four-course fine dining at the world’s first and...
