Active trekking tour in National Park Piatra Craiului - 1 day

Total:

1 day trekking tour in one of the greatest mountain in Romania. The main ridge is regarded as one of the most beautiful sites in the Carpathians.

This hiking trip is a great opportunity to explore Piatra Craiului National Park in the Carpathian Mountains, an area pretty much untouched by the 21st century. Trek past gorges, forests and pastures where mountain shepherds still work, and see a side of Romania that's hardly changed in generations.
 
Hike among the spectacular Carpathian Mountains on a guided, small-group tour of Piatra Craiului National Park from Brașov. Follow one of two routes on a 5- to 6-hour hike through alpine meadows, fragrant forests and country villages that seem untouched by time. See the cavernous Zarnesti Gorge, and learn about the traditional rural industries of cheese-making and shepherding. Refuel with hearty Romanian fare at either a mountain hut or a local village.
