We booked to stay in an igloo last Saturday, but upon arrival, we were told that it was not possible to sleep in the ice hotel or the igloos as they were starting to melt due to recent warm weather. The receptionist told us that they had tried to telephone us the previous day to advise us of the situation,...

Want to spend Valentines Day somewhere different?? We did, so we chose Transylvania with Untraveled Paths. We were met at the airport with a warm welcome by Marius and transferred to our hotel in Sibiu. Marius was a great, knowledgeable guide and was always eager to answer any questions. We stayed in 2 different hotels before heading off to the...

We used Untravelled Paths and their 3 day mini Ice Hotel trip which was just fantastic! Well organised, good hotels and a great guide! The Ice Hotel is fab and having the chalet close by meant you could quickly warm up with some hot wine in a warm room! Food is also fab there so opt for the ice dining...

The 200 meter dashes to the bathroom in the cable car station in the night/morning in high wind and blowing snow are not enjoyable (and you have to put on your boots, coat, gloves first), but worth it as everything else is extremely enjoyable and such an amazing experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked directly through...

Fantastic - -6 in hotel - we stopped in the igloos but when you are wrapped up in bed you are lovely and warm. Only problem no loos in hotel you have to walk about 4 minutes to cable car station. A must have the dining experience and also go snowmobiling - great I am 70 and I did it.

We visited the ice hotel as part of a trip organised by Untraveled Paths. The construction of the hotel and the themes of the rooms were amazing, and certainly a once in a lifetime experience. The rooms were themed as different countries and had loads of exquisite details which made the experience magical. The activities offered as part of the...

This is a 'must do' experience. The Ice Hotel is everything you think it will be and more! We booked with Untravelled Paths and had Marius G as our guide. He was 5 Star and excellent throughout the 5 day trip. The Ice Hotel day starts with an ascent of the mountain by mini bus. Hairpins and sheer drops of...

We travelled as a party of seven, in mixed ages and abilities, and we really enjoyed all aspects of the trip. The food served everywhere was of a high standard, contrary to the comment in the preliminary info. sent by Untravelled Paths. Timings on the last day were a little ambitious, but we arrived back to Bucharest in time for...
