Highlights

How it works

The Romania-trip is a 4 days tour that starts and ends in Bucharest. You’re trekking for 4 days off-the beaten path through the Piatra Craiului National Park, reach the top of Mount Piscul Baciului and sleep in traditional mountain huts along the way. The trip is led by an experienced local guide and includes everything needed: e.g. local transportation (Bucharest – Piatra Craiului – Bucharest), accommodation (mountain huts), as well as special equipment meals & drinks during the trip.

Itinerary

Your adventure starts & you’re picked-up from your accommodation in Bucharest or Otopeni Airport to get to the town of Zarnesti – the main gate to the Piatra Craiului National Park (3h drive). From here, you begin with 2-3 hours medium uphill hike to Curmatura mountain hut (1470 m), crossing the spectacular Zarnesti Gorges (we leave the main luggage at the mountain hut). Settle in, relax and enjoy nature and landscapes! The day ends with a traditional Romanian mountain dinner and some rest.

Early in the morning you’ll continue the climb towards the goal of the day – the highest peak in Piatra Craiului Mountains – Piscul Baciului (2238 m). The trail leads over a scree and some rocky walls & the gradual climb up towards the summit makes up for a memorable experience with unforgettable views. It is a not an easy trek, as a good part is spent on the main ridge which is very narrow; This day you spent on you feet around 8 – 10 hours and walk between 18 – 22 km, depending on the route chosen. Enjoy the amazing views all around you before getting back down to the mountain hut for some dinner and rest.

Today we do a North-South crossing of the main limestone ridge (2000m), which takes 7-8 hours and is a medium to hard trek (there are cables to hold on to for extra safety). The walk is approx. 14 – 16 km long and leaves you with unforgettable panoramas of this little visited region. There is the possibility of other trails – this can be discussed and adapted on the spot depending on the fitness level & weather conditions.

You’ll  leave the cabin early in the morning with a packed breakfast and descend towards Zarnest and back to our minivan. The downhill takes about 2 hours. From here, you’ll be transferred back to Bucharest or to the Otopeni airport (Arrival around 15.00). You’ll leave Romania with lots of stories to tell & amazing memories of beautiful views, nature as well as the experience to have reached the top of Mount Piscul Baciului. See you next time.
