Stay in the coolest hotel in the world. Literally.

There are many things to look for when choosing a hotel: does it have a sea view? Is the room luxurious? Is it likely to melt before the morning? Wait... what?

Yes, nestled deep in the Romania's Fagaras Mountains is the Ice Hotel - hewn each year from the frozen water of Balea Lake by local craftsmen using age old techniques.

We'll fly our intrepid winner plus their equally adventurous partner/friend into the heart of Bucharest, they'll visit Dracula's Castle* in Transylvania, and spend a night in the fabulous and surprisingly cosy Ice Hotel.

To stand a chance of winning this unforgettable trip, simply sign up for our newsletter using the handy form on the right.

* - yes, that Dracula!
