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...

We stayed in the jaws room for one evening. It's a unique experience to be able to sleep on a block of ice. The only complaint I have is with the organisation of the reservation.

The road up to the cableway is quite good compared with the romanian standards. Once you get up there you realize is no way going back. There is a tubbing track and some snowmobiles. The restaurant is quite good with reasonable prices. The way you share the room for luggage with others is quite questionable. During the night it was...
