The Ice Hotel Ski Experience

The Winter Wonderland Landscape: No other ice hotel can offer you the magical experience that comes from being nestled between gorgeous mountainous peaks. While other ice hotels are commonly found next to woodland or long stretches of monotonous landscape, Romania’s Ice Hotel is located over 2000m above sea level up in the Fagaras Mountains and overlooks breath-taking alpine valleys. In the winter, it is only accessible by cable car making it incredibly remote and exclusive.

The World’s Only Ice Restaurant: Home to the only Ice Restaurant in the world, the Ice Hotel Dining Experience is one of our best and brightest highlights. Diners are treated to a delicious four-course dinner with starters and dessert served on plates of ice and complimentary cocktails at the Sub Zero Ice Bar to boot. It is pure magic.

The Snow Suites & Igloos: One of our favourite things about the Ice Hotel is exploring the wonderful ice rooms and interiors of the igloos. Redesigned each winter, every single room is individual and boasts unique snow sculptures and magical mood lighting that fits in with the overall theme of the hotel. You can even spend the night in your very own private igloo.

The Ice Church: Just a stone’s throw away from the main Ice Hotel is the magical Ice Church, which plays host to white weddings, christenings and renewal of vows. From the altar and the pews to the collection box and even the organ, every sculpture in the Ice Church is made from ice with stunning intricate details and carvings. It really is something special. If you’re after your very own fairy tale wedding, do get in touch.
