We were on a 3 day trip with Untravelled Paths. TBH I'd never heard of them but I sent them a couple of email queries before I booked which were responded to within hours and reviews online were good. We decided to add a couple of days upfront to explore Bucharest ( which we were so glad we did). We...

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. I was told there were no openings, so I made a reservation for the chalet instead and was put on the waiting list for the...
