Quite simply, the Romanian Carpathians are still the most unknown but most natural hiking destination in Europe.
We arrange guided walking and hiking tours in the
for over 15 years. Where else can you enjoy that kind
of mountain scenery and never have to carry anything more than a light daypack. Even on narrow trails like
footpaths, which we traverse at least every day, you can walk the whole year without a tent, sleeping bag, food or
stove, knowing that our
guesthouse in the mountains
provides great meals, a hot shower, and a comfortable bed at the end of a long walk.
But in today’s ecology, where both vacation time and money are tight, you may prefer to spend your holiday time in
the Carpathians on day hikes. You will be able to enjoy the mountain scenery, waterfalls, bears and wolves,
and wildflowers during the day, and still be back in the village or on to your next destination before sunset.
There are lots of recommendations for the
most magnificent tours
in the Romanian Southern Carpathians.
Most of them are not marked, hard to follow, but can be hiked in each direction. You’ll find them easily with our
tour guides, and they will show you much more then you dreamed of. In most cases there is our minibus that picks
you up at the end of a hiking tour. Most importantly you’ll find huts and some mountain restaurants along the way
where hikers can get recharged with cheese, hot chocolate and a soup.
Hiking in the
Hikers enjoy the wild mountains during all months of the year, and every season offers its own special rewards.
During summer, the absence of snow opens new ideas along
Transylvanian hiking trails
and small villages. Autumn provides a daily parade of wildflowers and mushrooms. In spring, walkers can seek out
cool retreats among the forests and valleys or follow
to see the rural wildlife. Winter hikers have cold, dry air to sharpen the skis and a big palette of autumn
colors to enjoy. There's nothing wrong with wandering in the woods of Transylvania or the valleys of Romania, but
most of us need mountains in our environment. We still have a lot of
to add to this collection. Like the one in the Brasov country involving a wolf and an European brown bear, and
adventures involving rafting and bicycle tours.
