Discover More About Romania

The Carpathian Mountains stretch for 1,500 kilometres across central and eastern Europe. The eastern and southern parts of their range extend into Romania and enclose Transylvania in a vast semicircle, characterised by high peaks and densely forested slopes which still harbour brown bear, wolf and lynx, though you’re extremely unlikely to see any sign of them other than tracks and spoor!

Our walks in Transylvania follow high mountains ridges, climb up to mountain lakes and pass dramatic gorges and plummeting waterfalls. We enjoy the scenery of stunning Piatra Craiului and Magura National Parks and the Zarnesti gorge where special birds such as wallcreeper nest. We include a chance to see the old Bohemian town of Brasov, and Bran Castle, haunt of Count Dracula on your walks.

Trails are well maintained but sometimes steep, reaching altitudes of 2,500+ metres, and there are options to take cable cars to reach high peaks. Spring through to autumn is the best time to visit.
