CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Waking up to the stunning view and walking through the beautiful countryside. Seeing the bears from the hide. I became a very happy birder when I saw a group of black storks. The amazing food in the hotel.  

What did you think of your group leader?

Greg was very informative and worked hard at making sure everyone had a good time. Full of lots of good stories about Romanian life!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you're fit as lots of walking.  Invest in a good camera that can give clear shots in low light.  Try Herman's plum schnapps!  Be prepared for the bumpy road up to the village 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

It was a long hot ride to the village of Viscri which took up most of the day. Although it was a very interesting place maybe it would have been better to go somewhere  bit closer? The walk up through the Canyon to the shepherds' pastures was beautiful. (The film Cold Mountain used this location).
