Practical Info

Balea Lake is a four-hour drive from Bucharest or Brasov. The nearest airport is at Sibiu, about 77 kilometers away and a better jumping off point. The lake can be accessed from the Transfaragan Road starting from Arefu village in the summer months, but the road is closed from November to early May. In the winter, it is possible to drive from Cartisoara to the Balea waterfall and take the cable car to the lake. The ice hotel may also offer transport in the winter.
