The Carpathian Mountains form a circle around the region of Transylvania in central Romania, and are home to one of the largest undisturbed forests in Europe, as well as hundreds of species of flora and fauna, including 60% of the population of European Brown Bears. With a range of terrains and walking trails, it’s the perfect spot to don your walking boots and discover some of the incredible scenery Romania has to offer.
Spend five nights in the charming town of Brasov and, over the course of five walking days, explore some of the breath-taking mountain ranges that make up the Carpathians – the Fagaras Mountains, the Piatra Mare Mountains, the Piatra Craiului Mountains and the Bucegi Mountains.
Trek through alpine meadows, across craggy hilltops and alongside crystalline glacial lakes. Encounter unusual rock formations and rugged canyons, and marvel at magnificent views out across some of Romania’s most impressive landscapes. Of course, no stay in Transylvania would be complete without a visit to the imposing medieval fortress of Dracula’s Castle and exploring the country's capitivating capital city, Bucharest.
During this holiday, the group will be divided into two parties; leisurely and moderate, depending on the participant’s fitness levels, on three of the five walking days. On two of the five walking days only a leisurely walk will be offered.
The leisurely walks will be between 4 km - 13km with a maximum daily walking duration of up to 4 hours. The moderate walks will be between 6 km - 13km over more challenging terrain, with a maximum daily walking duration of up to 6 hours.
