Hike through buccolic landscapes, visit quaint villages and view the birds and bears that inhabit this lost corner of Europe
History and geography conspired to make Transylvania, in central Romania, one of Europe’s most beautifully wild and fascinating regions. For centuries the locals have existed in harmony with a variety of wildlife, including Europe’s highest concentration of bears, wolves and lynx. Meanwhile dense forests have remained largely untouched. Our days are spent on walks, through spectacular canyons, virgin forests and Saxon villages. We go in search of Brown bears and explore the mediaeval town of Brasov as well as Bran castle, best known as the residence of Count Dracula.
