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.

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.

The hiking tour with Dan is an incredible journey to a world that must be seen to believe. Dan will tailor the tour to your desires whether you are after a hiking challenge or a more relaxing and scenic adventure. This is a unique opportunity to see the mountains in Romania without the big tourist crowds!

I enjoyed a fantastic and memorable one day hike with Dan in the Ciucas mountains! Dan was very attentive to meeting my hiking ability and requests for a challenging and scenic hike with lots of photo opportunities. I was not disappointed! The mountains are a beautiful reflection of what Romania has to offer! On the way down the mountain, unfortunately an old hiking knee injury of mine reappeared which slowed down the descent, but Dan was very patient and helpful! I appreciated this very much! Overall, a great day out! I look forward to my next visit to the Mountains soon!
