Peleș Castle & Transylvanian Countryside Day Trip from Bucharest

From

110 EUR

Discover Romania in a day from two different perspectives: the Peleș Castle and a hike in the beautiful mountain area of Moeciu. If you add a delicious Romanian meal and a quick glimpse from the outside at the Bran Castle (we'll be in Transylvania, so why not?), the puzzle is complete.

I went on a day trip to Peles Castle, Pestera village, Magura village and Zarnesti Gorges with Dan and it was definitely a highlight of my trip to Romania!! In a day I was able to see a castle, visit picturesque local villages hidden in the rolling mountains, enjoy some excellent home cooking (all organic!), and also walk through a gorge! It is a unique combination of activities that I can't find from other agencies and is undoubtedly a nice sampler of what Romania has to offer if you don't have a lot of time.

Dan was very helpful starting from the booking process and was always seeking to tailor the trip according to my preferences. While a lot was covered in a day I didn't feel rushed at all and I was able to take my time taking photos or just taking in the spectacular scenery. Dan is knowledgeable, fun and patient and even my many questions about the haystacks couldn't trick him :)

It was great scenery and great company and I definitely hope I can come back again soon for longer hiking trips and to see what new destinations Dan and his team have discovered.

Thanks again Dan!

Description

We’ll leave Bucharest early in the morning and head to the beautiful town of Sinaia. The first highlight of the day is the splendid Peleș Castle, built by King Carol I. The former royal residence was built between 1873 and 1914 in the neo-Renaissance style.

Moving further into the land of Transylvania, we’ll hike in a beautiful rural area where time seems to stand stil, around 4 hoursl. Situated between Piatra Craiului and Bucegi Mountains, Moeciu invites you to relax and fully enjoy the stunning landscapes.

What’s definitely not to be missed is a good Romanian meal, a true reward, after the hike.

In the afternoon, fully energised and happy, we’ll return to Bucharest.

Excellent Scenery and Wonderful Guide!
Worth every penny! Dan was a wonderful and accommodating guide, and is genuinely passionate about showing his beautiful country to the world. The lunch in the countryside was definitely a nice touch.

Amazing time in iezer papusha
I had a great journy through the amazing mountains of iezer papusha which are some of the highest mountains in romania.the area is very wild and all around there is just mountains and forests.the entire ridge was covered with snow but dan knew very well how to manage and take us through the best tracks.overall it was an awsome expereince and i recommend it to anyone who want to experience the less known and more wild areas of romania,dan is your guy!
Just a beautiful day
It was so nice and a beautiful day. I really enjoyed it. And Dan was a helpful guide all the way.
