Private Hiking and Bear Watching in the Carpathians: Brasov - Piatra Craiului
Departure hour & location: 10.00, in front of your hotel
The Carpathian Mountains may not be as high as famous as the Alps or as old as Russia’s Urals, but are probably some of Europe’s most spectacular and wild mountain groups and are home to Europe’s largest large carnivores. Join us for a day filled with exciting tracks, breathtaking views and small, isolated settlements, where it seems like time has stood still for the last couple of centuries.
Explore the beauty of the Carpathian Mountains
Visit the Bear Sanctuary Liberty
Enjoy a delicious Romanian traditional picnic
We will depart in the morning from Braşov and drive to the mountains, just outside of Zărneşti. Here we will visit the Bear Sanctuary Liberty, one of the most interesting wildlife conservation projects: almost one hundred brown bears have been brought from old zoos and illegal animal parks, and have found a much better life here.
From here we will drive to the Piatra Craiului Mountains and prepare for a 5-hour hike to one of Romania’s most beautiful scenery: lively coloured meadows, migrating sheep herds and isolated mountain villages will enchant us all day long.
At noon we will enjoy a delicious picnic with traditional homemade sausages and cheese.
In the evening we will return to Braşov.
