Romania is a fascinating gem of Eastern Europe, blessed with intriguing history, rich culture and stunning mountain landscapes dotted with wildflowers, traditional villages and medieval castles.

Start out in Bucharest, Romania’s dynamic capital, where you can explore the city’s parks, museums and eclectic architecture while preparing to tackle Romania’s picturesque countryside.

Head to the Transylvania region for castles, culture and the spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife of the Carpathian Mountains; and hike the dramatic limestone ridges and gorges of Piatra Craiului for exceptional views of the Southern Carpathians.

Experience the legends of Dracula with a walking tour of the imposing Bran Castle; hike among stunning alpine forests, flower-laden meadows and ragged limestone cliffs in the Bucegi Mountains; and cycle or cruise along the stunning waterways of the Danube Delta.

Discover fairytale villages with wooden churches, horse-drawn carts and cultural traditions that have changed little over the ages; and enjoy the friendly welcomes waiting for you as you cycle through rural towns and arrive at each night’s refuge.

Check out our range of unique walking, cycling and cruising holidays and start planning your Romanian adventure!

Reducing waste

Our Waste Management Policy encourages our travellers to take their own reusable water bottles, coffee cups and reusable stuff sacks to avoid single use plastics. In the mountains of the Pyrenees and Mont Blanc our local partners reduce the amount of packaging taken on tour and ensure all waste is carried out from refuges that do not have road access to help dispose of it properly.

Supporting local

In the regions that we travel tourism is the main source of income for many local people. We support them by only working with local family run hotels and suppliers so your money supports the community that hosts you.

Paddock to Plate

The paddock to plate across Europe is one we encourage by choosing to work with accommodations that source produce from local farms. This provides you with fresher meals and ensures your money directly assists local economies.
