The mountainous area of Bran - Moeciu provides exquisite landscapes and amazing trails.

The western ridge of Bucegi Mountains is one of the less frequented mountains.Easy or hard treks can be chosen, so that you can enjoy the best of this hiking experience.

Hiking in Bucegi

This hiking trip will take us through the scenic Batrana saddle, up to the highest chalet in Romania situated at 2507 meters high on the Omu peak. Here we can enjoy the extraordinary landscape. Than we descend to the Pestera Hotel for the night.

Hike back to Moeciu

The hike back to Moeciu climbs easily on a old sheep road up to the ridge until we reach the Strunga saddle. From this point we only descend about 2 hours until we get to the forestry road of Moeciu

Medieval Transylvania

Visit the Rasnov Fortress - founded around 1225 by German Teutonic Knights. The superb location of this fortress allows us a great view over the surrounding mountains.

Onward we reach Brasov - the most important medieval city in the area and one of the most visited cities in Romania. Great sites to visit as The Black Church, the main square, the old defense walls that are still well preserved on the south and west side of the old city the watch towers and the narrowest street in Europe are just a few points on this day's agenda.

Optionally there is a 2-hour trekking tour to the Tampa peak (the Tampa peak is located in the middle of the city and provides an amazing view over the surrounding area.
