Ice Hotel Experience – Romania
Looking for alternative Europe Holidays? Staying in an Ice Hotel sounds pretty amazing, and based on the 5-star reviews, this is an experience that needs to be taken advantage of. What else makes this experience so amazing is that it’s in Transylvania, that’s right, home Dracula.
Ice Hotel Tour Overview
Untravelled Paths Ice Hotel Experience starts off in the vibrant city of Bucharest before guests travel into rural Romania through the Transylvanian plains. Once you reach the town of Brasov you’ll be blown away by its beauty and how friendly the locals are. Quick tip, make time to walk up and around this town, it really is quite amazing.
After exploring the streets, churches and boutique coffee shops of Brasov the tour heads to the Faragas Mountains by cable car up where you’ll reach the magical Ice Hotel. As you travel up the slopes you’ll pass snow-capped peaks and frosty forestland. Once you’ve chosen your snow suite or igloo and explored the fairytale hotel of ice, get your heart racing with some snow-activities like sledding and snowmobiling or simply kick back with a hot drink and just enjoy the sunshine, snow, and scenery.
That night, brace yourselves for dinner ‘on ice’ with a four-course meal at the world’s first and only Ice Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy dinner on ice plates, frozen tables, and frosty, fur-lined chairs, before enjoying an evening at the Sub Zero Ice Bar. After a cheeky nightcap, you’ll be able to get yourself tucked into a cosy sleeping bag, before braving the night in your ice-suite.
Next stop is Dracula’s castle, where you’ll have time to explore the residence, at the forbidding, Bran Castle.
The tour finishes up back in Bucharest for a final night at the capital’s buzzing bars and restaurants with your group.
