Since ancient times, the territory of today’s Romania has been a borderland of European civilization, strongly influencing its culture and its people who are an exotic mix of Oriental, Slavic and Occidental. Trekking through small mountain villages, we will get to know the locals and their culture, while tackling the rugged wilderness and the region’s impressive mountain ranges. The itinerary also travels out to the King’s Rock National Park, which was home to the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project, a conservation programme to protect and monitor the local populations of wolves, lynx and bears. And, of course, you cannot leave Transylvania without the obligatory visit to the castle of Romania’s most famous son, Count Dracula.
