Frosty Christmas at the ice hotel

We wish you a merry Christmas, cold outside, but warm at heart!

On that note, BBC just announced the opening of Romania’s first ice hotel, on Christmas Day. It’s located at Bâlea Lac, a superb glaciar lake at 2000m above sea level in the heart of the Carpathian Mountains, around midway through the Transfăgărășan, the road Top Gear gents named the best driving road in the world. Nowadays however the lake and the road are invisible under meters of snow[boarding paradise].

50 courageous Brits already reserved a spot, a wedding is announced.

The short BBC report here. The tripadvisor page for the ice hotel is here. More details on the ice hotel, here. Finally, breathtaking Bâlea Lac in images, here.

Have fun folks, enjoy the holidays and have a good slide (literally) into the New Year!
