From Brasov: Romanian Mountain Villages Day Tour

1. From Brasov: Romanian Mountain Villages Day Tour

This small-group tour takes you straight to the heart of rural life in Romania. See some local cottage industries, take a trek through pristine mountain forests, and learn about a way of life that’s slowly disappearing. Your immersive, full-day tour begins in central Brașov, where you’ll meet your local guide and board a private vehicle for the 45-minute drive out into the countryside. Along the way, let your guide know if you have any specific interests so he or she can customize the day’s itinerary accordingly. Choose to make an optional stop at Bran Castle – popularly known as Dracula's Castle. Explore the area surrounding the villages of Pestera and Magura, nestled in the Piatra Craiului National Park in the Southern Carpathian Mountains. Learn about the history of the villages, where the traditional industries of sheep farming and cheese making are still practiced by many of the inhabitants and catch an authentic glimpse into rural Romanian life. Visit the Bat Cave and admire limestone rock formations that have developed over centuries, including the so-called "tears of the earth." Next, set off into the hills and meadows around Magura for a moderate guided hike of 2–3 hours. Let your guide know if you prefer to hike for longer or shorter and go at a pace that’s comfortable to you. Visit the oldest guesthouse in the National Park. Meet some of the farmers, and sample two-three different kinds of cheese. Enjoy a hearty lunch of simple Romanian cuisine made from local farm-fresh ingredients. Purchase beer or wine to top off your meal. From the guesthouse, wander through Pestera Village, taking in the sights and visiting the local church. Head back to the car and relax on the scenic return drive to Brașov.

Brasov: Wild Water Rafting Day Trip

Experience real adventure on the water with this day trip from Brasov. Wild Water Rafting takes place on a river after a dam release, taking the difficulty level up to a rating of 2-3 – so you can really get the adrenalin levels going. We will meet at our logistic center, where you will receive your safety equipment. Your dry clothes will be kept safe in the vehicle for end of the experience. The group will then be transferred to the starting point, where we will put the boats on the water. This location has shallow and almost still water, so we can practice the basics of rafting and all the safety procedures. All participants are active during the event and must follow the guide's commands to keep the boats on course and help other participants if needed. Some sections are easier, while some others have rapids which require some technical skill. This balance gives you the chance to relax and also experience some exciting and heart-stopping moments.

What people are saying about Transylvania

Marian took us on an invigorating hike with gorgeous views that photos do not do justice! It was just us two, and we are avid hikers, so he was able to take us on a longer hike as per our request. It was physically demanding but not too difficult or dangerous, and every few minutes the views just got more breath-taking. After 3 hours in the mountains, we descended into a quaint village in the valley, passing grazing cattle & sheep and smelling bonfires in the distance. We felt so refreshed and alive. We ate lunch at a guest house, and he was able to arrange our family-style lunch to be all vegetarian, and it was very hearty and filling! To finish, we had a long but easy walk back along country roads, and Marian told us about how his tours are designed to be eco-friendly and give back to the local villages, which we definitely appreciate. Afterwards, we were pretty tired but so grateful we had booked this tour. It exceeded our expectations and was the best day of our trip by far.
