Description

You will be picked up in the morning, from your location. Then, you will enjoy a three hour scenic car ride on Prahova Valley, straight into the heart of Transylvania.
On the way you will admire the small towns and ski resorts on Prahova Valley, and the mountains and forests once we cross into Transylvania.
Get your camera ready as you will pass by the famous Bran Castle and take a few pictures from the outside. We will then continue to Moeciu village, close to Bran. We will put on the snowshoes and start exploring the hills.
There are many scenic options for snowshoeing in the area. On this tour we will climb the hills, go through forests, and see the rural life: people, barns, cows and sheep (if it is not too cold outside for them). And spectacular mountain tops, covered in snow, waiting to be photographed.
The activity takes around 4 - 5 hours in total, depending on the pace, the amount of snow, and weather.
After we get back to Moeciu village we will stop at a nice restaurant for a well deserved romanian meal.
We will arrive in Bucharest in the late evening. Drop off at the hotel.

Important: the tour takes place only if there is enough snow.

Wonderful scenery and amazing guide
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!

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.
