Carpathians in Romania: Bucegi Natural Park with native Spanish guide.

Carpathians in Romania: Bucegi Natural Park with native Spanish guide.

star-5

Almost all the trips that go to the Bucegi Natural Park are made from the part of Sinaia, which is the tourist part and where there are always large crowds both people and traffic. We prefer to start the excursion on the opposite side, the west side of the Bucegi, which is the authentic, wild part, where you really enjoy nature and where, apart from shepherds with their herds of cows and sheep, we rarely find other people .

star-5

Get to know one of the Transylvanian villages at a leisurely pace. Get close to the real character of the mountain villages as you enjoy a relaxing rambling day trip with beautiful scenery and a network of trails that could be rewarding to explore on foot. Located at a-half hour drive from Brasov, it's a great place for all kinds of outdoor activities – among them walking, the activity you experience with our licensed guides. The rolling hills afford wide views over the entire region with stunning landscapes of the mountains: Bucegi Natural Park, Piatra Craiului National Park, Postavaru Massif. Whilst many of the villages in the area are heavily visited, it is possible to walk here and experience real authentic village life. The walking grade is easy to moderate, in a round trip for walkers looking to explore a corner of Transylvania way off the tourist trail. The picnic with a view with local products (such as cheese, eggs, lard) completes an one of a lifetime experience.
