Journey to Romania and discover the country’s picturesque countryside

Romania – the name conjures up images of medieval towns, quaint picturesque villages and Transylvanian castles ruled by the shadow of Dracula. On this trip you’ll get this all and more - plus the opportunity to overnight in a hotel fashioned exclusively from ice. Drive through the Prahova Valley to the former summer residence of Romanian royalty, visit one of Transylvania’s castles that gave rise to The Count’s legend and spend a night in a hotel unlike any other. One of Eastern Europe’s most reclusive countries, Romania is an experience waiting to happen.

  • Drive through the stunning scenery of the Prahova Valley
  • Pay a visit to Peles Castle
  • Explore the infamous lair of Count Dracula
  • Spend a night in the unique Ice Hotel


Welcome to Bucharest, Romania’s rapidly modernising capital. Opt to get a sense of the city’s origins with a walk through the Lipscani District or perhaps check out the Arc de Triomphe; a scaled replica built to honour Romanian soldiers who served in World War I.
Wind through the exceptionally picturesque Prahova Valley en route to Peles Castle in Sinaia. Enjoy an evening in Brasov, a charmingly atmospheric city nestled in the Carpathian Mountains.
Stop in for a tour of Bran Castle, rumoured one-time residence of Count Dracula and arguably Romania’s most famous landmark. Continue on to Fagaras for a surprisingly cosy night’s stay in the famous Ice Hotel. While inside temperatures hover around the zero degree centigrade mark, reindeer fur-lined chairs, specialist sleeping bags – and possibly a few cocktails – will keep you warm and snug.
Visit the medieval town of Sibiu for a spot of pottering around its cobblestone streets and spacious central plazas. Return to Bucharest for another night before this trip comes to an end.
