Romania tour highlights

 

Uncover the myths of Dracula in Transylvania, stay in an ice hotel in the mountains, go in search of diverse birdlife on the Danube Delta, and hike along the verdant footpaths of the Carpathian ranges on our tours to Romania. Here are a few of our Romania tour highlights:
 

Transylvania

As we drive into Transylvania, it’s hard to ignore the imposing aura of Bran Castle, set upon a crag in a verdant valley of towering mountains. Famously known as ‘Dracula’s Castle,’ your local leader will show you around this fascinating fortress and reveal the truth behind the legendary fable on our Highlights of Romania Tour. Aside from fending off vampires, you can also savour some traditional Romanian food in Transylvania. Enjoy a home-cooked meal of stewed beef and baked bread washed down with some local red wine and a potent plum brandy called ‘tzuica'.

Winter wonderland adventure

Brace yourself for a chilly yet magical tour on our Romania Winter Adventure to view all of Romania’s must-see sights draped in a blanket of white snow. A popular highlight of this trip is an overnight stay in an ice hotel. Sleep on frozen beds and head to the ice bar for a warming brew of hot wine punch. To get the blood pumping, don some snowshoes for a walk in the enchanting winter wonderland and go in search of stalactites and stalagmites in the tunnels of the Transfagarasan Highway.
 

Wildlife trips

Romania’s Carpathian Mountains accommodate over 6,000 brown bears, one of only a few healthy populations in Europe, and their conservation is of great international importance. For a chance to see these bears in their natural habitat, join our five-day Romania Short Break Tour. As dusk falls, hunker down in a hide at a dedicated observatory and keep a lookout for bears foraging for food in the forest. Alternatively, embark on our Romania and Danube Delta Tour to cruise the myriad of channels of the Danube Delta. The second-largest river delta in Europe, this region is a haven for an abundance of bird species. Go in search of white pelican, pygmy cormorant, heron, egret and whitetail eagle, and relax on the sundeck as the setting sun casts a warm glow over the thriving marshlands.
 

Carpathian Mountains

Explore Romania’s magnificent Carpathian Mountains on foot on our Romania Walking Holiday. Trek through the unspoilt verdant countryside with lush pine forests and colourful meadows, and feel drawn to the gleaming white limestone ridge of the Piatra Craiului (The Royal Rock). As you ascend, keep a look out for brown bear, wild boar and even lynx, and discover far-reaching panoramic views of the southern Carpathian Mountains at the summit.
 

Solo holidays in Romania

 

If you are planning to travel alone to Romania, our small group tours are perfect for solo travellers. Join like-minded adventurers and make new friendships as your local tour leader shows you all of the must-see sights as well as some of the roads less travelled. 
 

Best time to go to Romania


Romania has a continental climate with warm, pleasant summers and very cold, snowy winters. Temperatures tend to be cooler in the mountains than in the cities all year round. 

Brace yourself for a chilly yet magical tour of Romania from January through to March. Many of Romania’s must-see sights will be draped in a blanket of white snow, and there are a variety of snowsport activities on offer. 

Uncover blankets of purple crocuses veiling the hillsides of Romania’s Carpathian Mountains in Spring. Or visit during the Autumn months to see a spectacular sea of burnt orange and crimson red leaves flowing through the valleys, and to join in with the country’s Harvest festivities.
