"Walking in the Carpathian Mountains" Romania by grets

Romania Travel Guide: 6,803 reviews and 22,061 photos


The scenery was absolutely stunning with snow-topped mountains, green valleys and meadows full of wild flowers.


We found the trekking more strenuous than expected with numerous up-hill sections on steep muddy banks. Alternative walking along tracks through villages can be arranged.


The Carpathian Large Carnivore Project rescued two wolves from a fur factory as cubs. These are now kept in a large enclosure on the edge of town.

    Some lovely places to visit here. The bears at the dumps remind me of watching a similar thing in British Columbia. I was transfixed!
