While many families will be heading to destinations where the sun always shines this Easter weekend, fans of winter holidays will love a stay at the Ice Hotel in Romania. (Featured image by Untravelled Paths)
Untravelled Paths is offering families the chance to explore one of Eastern Europe’s gems with a four-night, family-friendly stay at the enchanting hotel from March 29 to April 2.
The deal is priced from £415 per person, with children under 12 going half-price, and includes B&B accommodation, transfers and a treasure hunt on Easter Sunday.
The hotel is perfectly placed for exploring the rest of the area, which includes the foreboding Bran Castle, the would-be home of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Families can relive the feel of the 19th Century epic by roaming the spooky corridors, or pretend to be king or queen for the day with a visit to Peles Castle or the Rasnov Fortress, as well as the charming medieval town of Brasov, home to the narrowest street in Europe.
To see Romania from another perspective, visitors can take a cable car past the snow-capped peaks of the Fagaras Mountains.
For something a little more active, families can try out a spot of ice-skating, sledging or even a master-class in sledging, before warming their cockles with a cup of hot chocolate.
Back at the hotel, holidaymakers can enjoy a four-course meal “on ice” complete with ice plates, frozen tables and frosty, fur-lined chairs, before catching 40 winks in a set of cosy sleeping bags.
Priced at £1,245 for a family of two adults and two children, the deal includes four nights of B&B accommodation, all excursions, all transfers, the UTP booklet and the services of a bi-lingual guide throughout, but excludes flights.
