We meet in Zarnesti or Podu Dambovitei and go in a 4x4 vehicle into the heart of the Carpathians. After a drive and a 15-min hike, we arrive at our cabin. You will be greeted with traditional drinks and snacks while admiring the superb views of Pecineagu Lake. We explore the area, check our wildlife cameras and look for forest-dwelling locals. In the evening we feast on a delicious menu and local wines!
Wildlife and bird observation is done in the morning - you will wake up with a cup of coffee and see animals from the inside the cabin! After a tasty breakfast with homegrown local products, we get ready to go hiking in the alpine meadows of Fagaras Mountains - amazing views await! We return in the afternoon, look for more wildlife and enjoy the delicious evening meal.
You will stay at our specially built eco-friendly wooden cabin high up in the mountains with a SUPERB view of Pecineagu Lake. The cabin has a private bathroom with shower and can accommodate max. 5 guests. The food is organic, locally sourced, with local Romanian wines too - all included in price. How does that sound?
We don't call it a nature observatory for nothing - prepare for some spectacular views: sunrises, sunsets, night sky -- all perfect for admiring and photography!
