CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

When a mother bear and three cubs appeared at the bear hide and happily started eating and playing.

What did you think of your group leader?

Cosmin was great. He retained an air of quiet confidence throughout the week, whilst working hard to ensure our trip ran smoothly.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Please note that about half the week is walking. Some of us had failed to spot this and had chosen the trip due to the focus on wildlife. However this said, the scenary on the walks was fantastic and the exercise did us all good! I didn't need as much money as I thought I would, but then the optional forest walk and bird watching trip didn't even get a mention. There was opportunity to change money on a couple of occasions during the trip when needed. Don't drink too much schnaps, it goes to your head really quickly!   The guest house is everything you could want. Clean rooms, delicious dinners and great hospitality. Be prepared for plenty of cheese sandwiches for packed lunches though!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you're looking for just a week away then this trip is worth taking.
