Carpathian mountains & bears.

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I loved the day we hiked up into the high pastures of Piatra Craiului and had our picnic lunch (and wild raspberries!) in a forest glade. The bear watching evening was a real treat, too. And Brasov was a lovely little place, and Bran, and so on - nothing disappointed!

What did you think of your group leader?

Thomas was great, very knowledgeable and passionate about the place. Nothing was too much trouble, available 24/7, very relaxed yet took care of everything and everybody extremely well.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Just do it, you'll love it!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Don't forget your sandwich box for your picnics. Walking poles might be helpful. And find out how to turn the red lights off on your camera before you go (they scare the bears!)
