CARPATHIAN CULTURE AND WILDLIFE

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Vistas so wide you can't take it all in.  So many different shades of green.

What did you think of your group leader?

Cosmin has a passion for Romania, it's wildlife and history.  He is very knowledgable and he loves guiding. A great guide!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you are fit! There is no such thing as 'flat' on this trip.  It was often steep and sometimes loose underfoot.  That said it wasn't hard walking all day every day due to the 'culture' part of the itinerary.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The accomodation is superb.  Katerina and Hermann run a lovely guest house.  Clean and comfortable. The food is fresh and local every day.  Beware the Schnapps!!!   Say hello to Smelly Dog (aka Kurt Cobain). Don't go expecting to see wild wolves and bears on your walks every day. Visit the sanctuary and be grateful for it. Experience the bear hide.  Take binoculars and watch the beavers at the Beaver project.  Enjoy the many varieties of birds including birds of prey and myriad fauna and flora every day.
