Discover Romania in an active way, climb the mountains, walk in the countryside, interact with locals and taste the regional cuisine.
Our Romania walking tour is an extended trip, for 2 weeks, but depending your time available we can shorten the length to fit perfectly in your travel plans.
We designed the tour starting from Bucharest and ending in Cluj, but depending on your flight deals, we can rethink the itinerary.
The Romania walking tour is designed for moderate active travellers, so you don’t have to be an experienced hiker to attend this program. You need to be able to walk around 10 kilometres per day and our routes don’t have more than 500 meters difference in altitude.
So, if the length of the trip is not fitting with your time here, we can trim the itinerary, so we can accommodate the time you have planned for your trip to Romania. For further details, please contact us or fill our custom tour form.
We will decide together about the accommodation, but we suggest to choose small boutique hotels in the cities or guesthouses run by families in the countryside.
The price starts from 1400 EUR/person. This price is valid for a group of 6 persons and for a price of accommodation of a maximum of 70 EUR/night for a double room, including breakfast. Depending on the final itinerary, the type of accommodation you choose and the size of the group, the price can modify, so, for a personalised offer please contact us.
