Hi, Were off to Braşov next week and would like to do a bear watching trip in the forest, would it be best to book a trip up online here in the uk (about euro 45 for 3 hours). or wait until Braşov and book something up locally?
Are there many tour agencies in Braşov?
I will be hiking in the area of Mara-Breb to leud and then up to Sighetu Marmatiei. About five-six days, village to village, mostly through the woods, over the hills and off the trails. I will find places to stay along the way. Are there any dangers or other issues I should be aware of in this area of Romania?
We are looking for a family friendly homestay in Transylvania this summer - ideally staying with another family so our children can play etc and experience the local way of life. In/around Brasov, Sovata and Bistrita. I have only found larger guesthouses online. If anyone has any recommendations or suggestions of where to look that would be great!
I'm thinking of doing a cross-country hike, village-to-village, from Sighisoara to Cluj-Napoca. Not interested in big mountains, I'm more into rambling through the woods and across fields. I will carry everything with me and I have six days to do the hike. Probably late May. If anyone can tell me about this area of Romania, including general info on places to eat and sleep between these two towns, I'd really appreciate it. I'm open to suggestions for other sections of Romania, also.
I'm going to be in Bucharest a few days from now and then heading to Brasov. I'd like to get there without spending too much traveling on public transport (under normal circumstances I'm always a fan of trains and buses when abroad.) Can anyone recommend a driver with car? I'm not really interested in a guide. Searching this forum for other posts haven't really give me much info.
My husband and I along with our son want to do a multi-day hike in or around the Bran / Bucegi Mountains area. Do they have lodges or hiking hostels that you can stay at. We really didn't want to bring all our camping gear. Or if there is trail between towns or villages.
Also, we'll be there early June. Any idea the typical weather that time of year.
planning to cycle from Belgrad along the Danube to the Iron Gates, then turn north into Transylvania and Maramures. If some feedback on possible routing can be given it'd be much appreciated. Aim is for roads that are not heavily trafficked by trucks and cars, but pass through scenic areas with lovely rural villages and all that jazz.
I use BRouter to help with planning routes, but its 'Safety' and 'Fastbike-lowtraffic' modes often come with different results, yet I think these two are…
We are planning on spending a couple of weeks driving around Romania this summer. I've been checking a lot of car rental companies and, as usual, the big ones are the most expensive and the local ones are those that get bad reviews because of insurance scams (or simply for disagreements).
Also, I'm quite convinced of the need to get full insurance, so that's something to consider when checking prices too.
Is there any local reliable company that any of you could recommend?
