Retezat National Park Day Hikes in Romania


Join a certified local guide on an amazing hike in the gorgeous Retezat National Park in Romania!


Carpathian Mountains

1+ Days

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov




  • Explore the oldest National Park in Romania.
  • Enjoy discovering Retezat's wide array of alpine lakes.
  • Hike in a pristine wilderness area with wild flora and fauna.


The beautiful Retezat mountain range is home to Romania's oldest national park (1935). Boasting 100 mountain lakes (out of which 60 are permanent), more than 20 peaks with altitudes over 2000m, and an impressive variety of flora and fauna, this mountain range is the best trekking destination in Romania. On the exciting day tours that I offer, I will guide you to some of Retezat National Park's most magical spots.

We will meet in Hateg city, or we will start together from Timisoara. From there, we will drive 1 hour to Rausor Ski Resort or Cârnic. Once we arrive our trek will begin. Options include trekking to Pietrele and Stanisoara lakes, Peleaga Peak, or Stevia Lake and Retezat peak, depending on your preferences and needs. On the way, we will enjoy the impeccable nature of the park which is wild and pristine as a result of the fact that there are no high mountain huts in the region due to national park regulations. The views are amazing and the wilderness is pure and clean!

Because we will be hiking for long hours in uneven terrain, you will need to have the capacity to hike up to 15km in one day, with an altitude gain of 1500m. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you every step of the way.

Join me on this amazing hiking adventure in the Retezat National Park. Send your request and we can begin to plan your trek. I look forward to guiding you!

About the guide

I discover mountains in 1997 and since than an important part of my time is spent out there. This passion leads me through different mountains ranges as Carpathians, Balkans, most of the Alps, High Atlas and Himalayas.
I start guiding in 2017 as a International Mountain Leader organizing trekking tours during the summer and snowshoeing during the winter especially in Carpathian mountain ranges.
Please get in touch with me if you need a guide for you trip in Romania. I will be pleased to accompany you and to help you to have a great time. If I'm busy don't worry my colleagues, all UIMLA certificated, can help me to answer to your queries.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
