Had a good time in Ice Hotel, only problem was the filming of Coors Light ad with Jean Claude Van Damme, therefore loads of people (film crew). Jean Claude was a true gentleman and had time for all. The staff at the Chalet restaurant left a lot to be desired, as a group of approx. 22 booked through Untravelled Paths...

This was the highlight of our ice hotel experience trip. It was a round trip of 4 days. On 'THE ground' we had quit high temperatures. Actually Bucharest was 15 C.
