This trip is about exploring underground activities in both natural caves and mine environments, ranging from purely recreational trekking days to a more adventurous trails. Our exact itinerary will depend on the weather conditions and advice of our local guide, but we will be focusing our efforts on the spectacular Apuseni Natural Park.

We will be on foot, on mountain trails, for the best part of each trekking day and some of the trails can be steep and rocky in places. As such, this tour is suitable for people with an average to good level of fitness and a love of walking in the mountains. The accommodation is either camping in a tent or sleeping in a local B&B in the heart of Apuseni Natural Park.
Apuseni Mountains, which form part of the Carpathians, lie in the Central Western region of Romania, relatively close to the border with Hungary. The landscape varies from alpine meadowland to densely wooded forests, rich in wild vegetation where the moss, lichen and fern lay a green cover over the land. The most fascinating in this plateau is the karst landscape where the rivers eroded limestones to create the caves that appear every few steps wherever you go.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Fagaras Mountains can offer the most spectacular 
mountain 
views 
of
 some
 of
 Romania’s 
highest
 and
 iconic 
summits 
such as Moldoveanu Peak (2544m), Negoiu Peak (2535m) and Vistea Mare Peak (2527m). You can start the trekking days from the West to the East side of the massif following on the ridgeline for about 7 consecutive days (a total of 70km with challenging - hard level of difficulty on some sections, especially on rainy weather).

You will walk on alpine mountain paths, rocky terrain, steep climbs and uneven surfaces at an altitude ranging from 1000m to 2500m. A head for heights and a fit physical condition is required to walk for up to 7 hours daily.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Trascau Mountains is the best place for those looking for adventure and also try to get a taste of this culturally exciting and vibrant part of Romania. This trip gives options for everyone regardless of age, experience or skill levels, however you do need to be of a physical condition to be able to pass narrow sections between rocks and have a reasonable sense of risk at high altitude.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Venture to ascend above the treeline of Pinus Cembra in Retezat Mountains to be astonished by breathtaking views that make your heart to beat fast. The relief in the Retezat Mountains is glacially overprinted with jagged mountain summits with elevations up to 2509 m. This trip suites those that are physically active and expect travelling in mountainous terrain with a backpack.

On this trip the aim is to set up the camp base next to the largest glacier lake in Romania at an altitude of about 2,040 m. However as the weather in this area is always a challenge you may choose a more comfortable camping place at a lower altitude. Whether you are choosing to camp at the high altitude, you will be carrying your own backpack on a short journey (approx. 2 hours) to the camping area. On the following days you will need only a day carry bag for food and water. The trekking trails will have a moderate towards challenging difficulty with walking for about 6-7 hrs per day. At times the walking is very steep and the drops can be sheer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

There is a small corner of Romania that remains still wild and tranquil in all its extraordinary varied scenery. Banat Mountains have much to offer to walkers of all abilities. The classic routes for this trip are in autumn when the leaves are in multicolour shades or in the spring when the orchids and lilac are in bloom over the valleys.

Renowned for its spectacular spring and autumn colours from rare trees, it draws walkers and visitors to the area with its collection of European beech (Fagus sylvatica), various oak species (Quercus sessilis) and hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) trees and provides a habitat for populations of brown bear, grey wolf, lynx, wildcat and eagles. The underground rivers are part of a karst landscape, where eroded limestone created numerous caves in the area. This part of the nature boasts its wildly differing landscapes which have been designated as outstanding.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Be fascinated by one of the sharpest Jurassic limestone ridge in Romania and learn about its unique formations. Passing by Bran's Castle you will walk through high pastures following part of the Rucar Bran Pass through the picturesque Brasov County countryside.
