Amazing and different place to stay! Each room had different sculptures in them showing different countries. It was surprisingly warm sleeping there, you get plenty of blankets and a sleeping bag. We also ate in the hotel which was delicious and again something you must try! There are chalets nearby so if you wanted to stay in them, you could...

Unfortunately, the flight was delayed a lot later and...

A friend of mine booked this trip and I hadn't read much about it so I didn't really know what to expect. My friend then decided that she did not want to go so I decided to go on my own. My fears at being the only person by themselves were soon out the window. Our Tour Guide, Dragos, was...

Booked with untravelled paths whom I strongly recommend. Hotel made each year from ice blocks taken from a frozen lake. Rooms are off the ice restaurant with 4 additional igloos next to it. Rooms -2 to+2 C but given good quality dry sleeping bags and not too cold. Great atmosphere but strongly recommend also booking a room in the nearby...

More like hostel facilities. Resort was taken over by film crew which impacted on our stay. I thought it was a bucket list trip but it ended up more like the group needed the bucket on the bus as a bug seemed have been caught whilst staying and enduring the revolting toilet facility! Stressing facility singular between a group of...

Love it! Totally amazing views from top and a lot of fun! the hotel is pretty good, the tematic and the ice sculpture are nice. the way to get there by telecabina was long cause it was a lot of people and just one cabin. I reccomend to arrive early and have lot of patience.

As we arrived from the cable car the views and the set-up was amazing. The Lodge on the Lake was really beautiful. The activities inc Tubing and Rafting were great fun and we were really well looked after. The dinner in the Ice Hotel was great and the staff made the whole thing even better. The only thing that was...

02/03 Mar 16. Our access around the resort was severely restricted, the timing of our activities was totally engineered around the arrival of a helicopter and the crew's schedule/requirements. We firmly believe that the Ice Hotel should have closed the resort to other guests whilst the crew was in situ and filming. Extra snow mobile traffic to ferry supplies and...
