CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing 9 bears and cubs from the bear hide was brilliant.  It was also great to see the work carried out at the sanctuary in Zarnesti in rescuing mistreated bears and providing them with an environment close to what they should have experienced as wild bears.

What did you think of your group leader?

Both Cosmin and Udo were very enthusiastic and knowledgable about the area and it's history : )

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I would definately class some of the walking as strenuous, a walking pole might be useful as some of the up/down hills are steep!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Try the home made plum brandy at the guesthouse! Make sure you pay a visit to the local 'pub'!
