This is the trip into a heart of wintery and covered in snow Romania. We will be staying at the ice hotel, snowmobiling, sledding and visiting Drakula’s Castle. On the way back we will stop over in Bucharest and do a guided tour of the city.
Sleeping in the hotel of ice:
Each year the hotel’s rooms are uniquely designed and original: adapted, made entirely of ice with differently themed rooms. This season „Carnival“ is the hotel’s theme.
Rooms are completely made of ice. The beds as well as the furniture are made of big blocs of ice. however it will not be a survival adventure, we will be given a soft mattress which is covered with sheets, blankets and fluffy animal fur. Before going to bed, every guest receives a warm sleeping bag because the room’s temperature is between -2 and +2 degrees Celsius.
Ice Bar is a key element of the Hotel of Ice at Balea Lake. It represents the hotel’s heart that heats and sets in motion the most frozen blood!
Ice cocktails. Their speciality are cocktails which are not served in ordinary glasses but in glasses carved in ice. If you prefer to heat you up we recommand a hot wine punch or a delicious black tea. Whatever will be your choice, you will have an unforgettable experience worth telling your grandchildren.
A must when you’re at the original Icehotel! Explore the magical world of ice sculpting for yourself. Working with your hands completely absorbs you, realaxing and intense at once.
While you are waiting for your turn on the snowmobile you will be able to try some sledding. Please note those are old style sledges and will be taken at own risk.
We invite you to experience the history, the myth, the intrigue and the magic of this wonderful place. We hope that you will carry the spirit that makes us love Bran Castle with you, always.
