3-day Hiking & Wildlife Trip in the Wild Carpathians

Robert With: Robert 9
Let's go on a hiking trip in a beautiful unspoiled and wild part of Fagaras Mts where no other tourists venture. Enjoy breathtaking views and see wildlife roaming free in nature! We'll spend 3 days hiking in the area to do wildlife observation or tracking from our specially-built observation cabin at 1,600m. This is a unique experience that will help our conservation efforts!

Moments to expect during the wildlife observation trip

  • Day 1: enter Fagaras Mountains

    Day 1: enter Fagaras Mountains

    We start our journey in Rucar village, Arges county or Brasov (on request) around noon and enter Fagaras Mts. by offroad car. We leave the car and start hiking our way deeper into the mountains with only essentials with us. On our way, we become familiar with the area and start looking for signs or tracks of wild animals and other forest-dwelling creatures!

  • Hike to our wildlife observation refuge at 1,600m

    Hike to our wildlife observation refuge at 1,600m

    We hike our way up the mountains to reach the wildlife observation hide at Comisu, located in a completely wild and not unpopulated area. Made out of wood with a rustic feeling and large windows, it blends in with the natural setting and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area! Animals sometimes pass in the area so we can do wildlife observation 'from home' :)

  • Day 2 & 3: introduction to wildlife watching and tracking

    Day 2 & 3: introduction to wildlife watching and tracking

    During this trip you will learn about Mother Nature's ecosystem in the Carpathian Mts. Our specialised mountain guide will give you binoculars and teach you about animals' natural habitat and take you on wildlife tracking and observation trips. We check forest observation cameras, look for animal tracks and enjoy the superb views in the area while hiking! Keep in mind that seeing animals is not guaranteed as nature cannot be controlled but in these parts the chances are very high: bears, deer, boars, foxes, eagles, etc.

  • Hiking in Fagaras Mountains

    Hiking in Fagaras Mountains

    We are in the heart of Fagaras Mountains - Transylvania's Alps. There are plenty of hiking trails to choose from, of various difficulty and rewards. We can go up to 2,100m, circle Pecineagu Lake or explore other nearby peaks. Prepare for some mountain adventures!

  • [Tour extension] Spend another day in the wilderness

    [Tour extension] Spend another day in the wilderness

    For an extra 115 Euro/person [with everything included] you can stay another night and day here and enjoy the wilderness! Besides the obvious reasons for this, there's one you can't anticipate right now: the silence, fresh air and raw beauty of this wild area is absolutely addictive!

  • NEW: Bisons reserve & rewilding programme

    NEW: Bisons reserve & rewilding programme

    Our organisation recently started a bison rewilding program hoping to reintroduce these precious, gentle and large animals in the wilderness of Romania! The bisons are currently in a camp close to the cabin and we will go visit them, learn why they became extinct and how the process of rewilding them is done!

  • Ready to disconnect?

    Ready to disconnect?

    We are DEEP in the wilderness of the Carpathian Mts, in a non-touristy area with no roads or other villages nearby. There is NO phone signal (except on certain peaks in the areas), no wi-fi or electricity. You will be completely immersed in nature's beauty and silence and disconnect from busy civilisation. Are you ready for this unique experience?
