Moments to expect during the haunted forest tour:
A trip to Poiana Rotunda
The round clearing is considered to be the main spot of the forest where various researchers have recorded unusual data and paranormal activity over time. It's almost perfectly round-shaped and no vegetation grows in the middle except for grass at exactly the same height. How weird is that?
Investigate the forest
We will investigate the clearing and make our way deeper in the forest using EMF meters, a Geiger counter, photo cameras or other devices depending on the situation.

Reviews from travellers
It was an enjoyable trip with a friendly guide. It was in the hunted forest and from the stories that kept streeming from our guid Alex, we lost very quickly the griff in reality and God knows now what was a real story and what was fiction. Above all it was a pleasent morning in a lovely forest. Oh... and be aware from the alien in the tree!
Alex is a very funny and friendly guide. I really enjoyed my tour of the forest and chatting with him about Romania and the legends of the forest. If I come back I would like to do a night tour next time.
