Hike through buccolic landscapes, visit quaint villages and view the birds and bears that inhabit this lost corner of Europe
The majestic Piatra Craiului Mountains of central Romania is one of the last remaining true wilderness areas in Europe. For centuries the locals have existed in harmony with a rich variety of rare wildlife, including Europe's highest concentration of bears, wolves and lynx. Due to the old communist regime, the dense forests of the Carpathian Mountains have remained largely untouched by the outside world and many rare species of birds and wildlife inhabit this amazing region. Our days are spent on walks through spectacular canyons, virgin forests and Saxon villages. There is also a chance to visit the mediaeval town of Brasov.
