A Romanian adventure featuring the magical Ice Hotel, skiing, and medieval castles - includes travel, ski equipment and passes, plus excursions

For a once-in-a-lifetime snowy adventure, combine a magical stay at Transylvania’s Ice Hotel with a few adrenaline-surging days at Romania’s premier ski resort, along with a whirlwind tour of the region’s prettiest medieval towns and mighty castles.

After one night in the energy-crackling city of Bucharest, you’ll plunge straight into the pages of a dark fairy tale, whipping through Transylvania’s forested valleys and mist-shrouded mountains, stopping en route to marvel at the ornate Peleş Castle. You’ll then call at the medieval town of Brasov, a knot of cobbled lanes, imposing watchtowers, gothic churches and boho-cool cafes, staying overnight in a charming boutique.

Next up, you’ll hop aboard a cable car to soar up the icing-coated Faragas Mountains, where you’ll find Transylvania’s Ice Hotel, perched a lofty 2,000 metres above sea level. Rebuilt every year from blocks of frozen water carved from Balea Lake, this frosty haunt is home to rooms showcasing snow sculptures and ice beds, topped with heaps of blankets and sleeping bags.

While here, you’ll tuck into a four-course dinner in the world’s first ice restaurant (chargeable) – think frozen tables, plates made from ice, and fur-lined chairs – kick back in Sub Zero Ice Bar and bed down in an extraordinary ice-suite (be sure to pack your woollens along with your passport).

The next day, it’s time for a whistle-stop tour of the mighty ‘Dracula’s Castle’, before continuing on to Poiana Brasov ski resort for three days on the powdery slopes of the Postavaru Mountains. Finally, you’ll head back to Bucharest for a final night in the vibrant capital, before catching your flight home the next day.
