We have just completed the Ice Hotel tour and it was a most memorable holiday. We had some great experiences and saw some wonderful sights. The hotels, the food, and the transport all worked out very well. The organisation and communication were excellent. I thought that Dragos was the perfect tour guide, very enthusiastic, very knowledgable and you could see...

Just completed a trip to the ice hotel with Untraveled Paths. We have had an amazing time, the whole trip was brilliantly organised by the company and the literature provided was perfect to make our whole Romanian stay perfect. The ice hotel was great, the evening meal set us up for a cold stay ahead, we had such a laugh...

However, the Ice Hotel was the best! What great fun we had playing in the snow, snow mobiling, rafting, tubing, walking through the tunnel and having snow...

Just returned from a fantastic trip to Romania and the Ice Hotel. The country is amazing and the welcome was very warm, especially from our two guides...both named Marius. They went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed outselves. Always ready to help but never intrusive. They were both informative about the country its history and its legends...

We were on a 3 day trip with Untravelled Paths. TBH I'd never heard of them but I sent them a couple of email queries before I booked which were responded to within hours and reviews online were good. We decided to add a couple of days upfront to explore Bucharest ( which we were so glad we did). We...

This is a once in a lifetime experience the guides were so friendly and helpful throughout the stay. If you get the chance don't let it pass you by. Ice sculptures, bed, tables chairs All in ice. Great food much fun at the ice bar and one long party with the group.

Great value experience. You have the chance to stay in the warm chalet if it all gets too much but we made it through the night without any issues. Thoroughly enjoyable . We also had the dinner in the ice bar. They are on the ball and serve it nice and quickly and then it's back to the lodge to...
