Description

On this thrilling 3-day eco-certified hiking tour in the Carpathian Mountains, you will get a taste of Romania’s beautiful wild side.

The tour begins and ends in Brasov. From there, we will head first to the gorgeous Bucegi Mountains on the first day, and to the Piatra Craiului National Park on the following two days.

Throughout the tour, we will spend between 5 to 8 hours trekking each day, we will stop at an authentic sheep farm for a special lunch, we will cross local mountain villages, and, if the weather permits, we will also climb the highest mountain in the National Park(2238).
