Are you a passionate mountain hiker or a wildlife enthusiast? Then you will most probably fall in love with the imposing ridges of the Carpathians and the labyrinth of trails that go through dense forests. And not to mention, the wildlife. The rich and diverse wildlife of Romania will make you want to come back for more hiking tours.
Romania is an excellent destination for hiking tours! Therefore our tours might be the best type of tours you could do in your holiday.
The Carpathians are covered by the largest forest area in Europe. Therefore they are home to more than a third of the large carnivores living in the wild in Europe – brown bears, wolves and lynxes.
Our hiking tours get you on the highest and most imposing ridges in the Carpathians. We will hike on trails through dense wild forests accompanied by various bird calls. In addition, the animal tracks will unveil their presence in our surroundings. With a little bit of luck, we get to spontaneously spot a variety of species.
But are those hiking tours in Romania accessible for your fitness level you might ask?
There are two types of hiking tours we offer. The ones in the Carpathians imply a good physical condition as we are going to ascend ridges and peaks over 2000 meters. The tours in Transylvania are easier and follow narrow trails through forests and meadows. Both of them offer spectacular views and are very well suited for nature observations.
The hiking tours in the mountains are on average between 4 and 6 hours long/ day. However, some days might be shorter and some days longer.
All routes are on mountain marked paths and don t require special equipment (harness, rope, etc.). However a good fitness level is required and some experience with mountain trails as well. On the other hand, the hiking tours at the foothills of the mountains can be as easy as a walk in the park.
What if you are not decided? Or you didn’t find exactly everything you would like to do during your hiking tours in Romania?
Nature Guide offers more than just the pre-made tours you will find in this section of the website. If you have a special request or you wish a tailor-made trip, just let us know and we will come up with an interesting offer.
You can check our other tours and maybe combine them. In addition, maybe you have a place or activity that someone recommended to you and you don’t find it on our site. No problem, we might be able to include it to your program.
We can organize tours for both larger groups (<20 people) and small groups or individual persons. For some of the tours though, the group size is limited to 6 persons for environmental reasons.
