Walking In The Romanian Countryside And Transylvanian Alps

On this walking tour in Romania we experience local hospitality, discover beautiful countryside and explore historic towns. We get well off the beaten track as we travel deep into the Transylvanian Alps, the legendary home of Dracula. Staying in a local guesthouse and mountain huts we walk through the imposing Bran Valley and to the Piatra Craiului Mountains, for one of the most spectacular ridge walks in Europe. We also have the opportunity to visit the ornately decorated Peles and Bran Castles.

  • Transylvania - Get into the heart of the Southern Carpathians, walk in beautiful countryside
  • Bran and Peles castles - Ornately decorated (optional trips)
  • A warm welcome - Experience fantastic hospitality and traditional food from our guest house in Moieciu
