Carpathian walking and bears

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

It was a privilege to see the bears, and we loved Brasov, but really just the valley we were in and the walks we went on were the best bits. And the horse and cart ride!

What did you think of your group leader?

Udo was an informative and entertaining guide. What this man doesn't know about flora and fauna isn't worth knowing!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

We found walking poles very useful, but there were plenty to borrow if you don't have your own. The walking is rated correctly in my opinion, the most challenging day had an option of a shorter walk anyway. Be prepared for the fact that dogs live outside in this area and it's pretty noisy at night, ear plugs might be useful!
