Day 1 Bucharest – Peles Castle – Bran Castle – Bran
Day 1 Bucharest – Peles Castle – Bran Castle – Bran

Our 3 days adventure departs from Bucharest, where the tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive towards Transylvania.
Our first stop will be Peles Castle, a beautiful Neo-Renaissance castle, which was the former summer residence of the Romanian Royal family. As we walk up a slope, we will be passing charming cafes and artisan stalls. Once we arrive, you'll be captivated by the architectural splendor of the castle and its lush surroundings.
Next, we will head to the heart of the Carpathian Mountains, to visit a 13th-century castle that has been to the bucket lists of many travelers: Bran Castle. Perched on a rock and surrounded by snow-capped mountains, this red-roofed castle invites you inside. The myth, the intrigue, and the magic of this interesting castle in Transylvania make this destination a great place to capture that Instagram photo you've been craving for! Despite its association with Dracula, inspired by Bram Stoker's character, the castle now serves as a museum showcasing art and furniture collected by Queen Maria of Romania. Overnight in Bran.

Day 2 Hiking – Brasov city tour – Bear watching – Bran
Day 2 Hiking – Brasov city tour – Bear watching – Bran

Today, we will explore the wild beauty of Transylvania, exploring into the Carpathian Mountains, known as Europe's last true wilderness. Our journey will lead us to some of the most picturesque villages in the heart of the mountains, which is a crossing point of three different landscapes, in an almost infinitely large natural area. To truly experience the idyllic surroundings of the Piatra Craiului Mountains and connect with its welcoming inhabitants, we'll embark on a hiking adventure. Lace up your hiking boots, and let's set out!
Locals here live on traditional, small farming, with cheese and other dairy products being their primary source of income, and for lunch, we will try some of the local cheese. As some of these villages only became accessible by car in recent years, horse-drawn carts are still the most commonly used vehicles in the village, so if you encounter a local, don't be shy to say hi!
In the afternoon, we'll journey to Brasov, a medieval city that transports you back in time. Rich in history and surrounded by forests, Brașov traces its origins back to the Neolithic age, with significant contributions from the Saxons in its development. Our visit includes the iconic Black Church, a Gothic-style monument with a six-ton bell, the largest in Romania. After the fire from 1689, when the roof and the interior furniture were completely destroyed, the walls were darkened by the smoke of the fire and earned the name "The Black Church."
After a leisurely time in a cozy cafe, our day's adventure concludes with an exploration of Romania's diverse fauna, one of the richest and most varied in Europe, containing rare or even unique species on the continent. We will be meeting the local ranger, and we will head deep into the forest to admire the majestic brown bear. The bear observatory is very close to the animals, so be quiet and pay attention to every detail. Lucky observers might even catch a glimpse of bear cubs playing nearby! Afterward, we will return to the hotel. Overnight in Bran

Day 3 Bran – The Temple of Wishes – Balea Lake – Bucharest
Day 3 Bran – The Temple of Wishes – Balea Lake – Bucharest

On our final day, we'll drive towards a stunning destination that promises to infuse you with fantastic energy and inner peace—a true oasis of beauty. Here, we'll explore an ancient cave church, constructed over 6000 years ago.
This extraordinary site has high spiritual power, and many say that it is a place where miracles do happen. Surrounded by nature with a picturesque traditional monastery atop a hill, the Sinca Veche Rupestral Monastery is believed by many to be a place where wishes come true!
Next, our journey takes us to Balea Lake, the largest glacier lake and a gem in the Fagaras massif. Set the top of a mountain and over 2000m altitude, with a landscape that gives you a state of tranquility, away from the hectic cities, Balea Lake represents a splendid monument of nature that should be admired while visiting Romania. Here, we'll have the opportunity to enjoy a lakeside picnic, savor local soup, and then, we will head back to Bucharest. In the evening, you will arrive in Bucharest, and you will be dropped off at your hotel. This marks the end of this amazing experience through culture and nature.
*Before you book, please be informed that Balea Lake can be easily reached in summer by car, but in the cold season is only reachable by cable car from Balea Waterfall. Between June-November, your guide will be driving you on the Transfagarasan Highway.
