Transylvania and Wildlife Watching in Romania

Romania is a ruggedly beautiful country and on this long weekend we uncover dramatic mountains, medieval towns and fairy tale castles. We travel deep into Transylvania - the legendary home of Dracula - and visit the Saxon fortifications in Brasov. In season we have the unique opportunity to watch European brown bears emerge from the thick forests to feed at a local reserve.

Tour Highlights

  • Bucharest - Explore the city with a guide including the famous Casa Poporului - Ceausescu's Palace
  • Transylvania - Visit Peles, Pelisor and Bran Castle, plus Sinaia 'the Pearl of the Carpathians'
  • Brasov - Discover medieval Old Brasov on foot
  • Bear Watching - In the observatory at the local bear sanctuary (in season)
