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.

In the evening, we braced ourselves for dinner ‘on ice’ with a four-course fine dining at the world’s first and...

The Ice Hotel is amazing the staff are wonderful the views are amazing . This is a wonderful experience. And although didn't get much sleep I am pleased that we spent the night in the ice hotel . But remember everything is ice and it is very cold and is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
