3-Day Hiking & Wildlife Trip at an Eco-Luxury Private Cabin in Fagaras Mts

Robert With: Robert 9
High in the beautiful and wildest parts of Fagaras Mts where animals roam free we built a cosy mountain cabin! Let's go on a 3-day hiking trip to observe wildlife, learn about Mother Nature and enjoy breathtaking views! Enjoy splendid isolation, reconnect with nature and feast with organic, locally-sourced products. A unique experience in Romania's mountains that will help conservation efforts!

Moments to expect in the hiking and wildlife trip:

  • Day 1: enter Fagaras Mts & check-in

    Day 1: enter Fagaras Mts & check-in

    We meet Rucar village (Arges county, 70 km from Brasov; transfer from Brasov possible at extra cost) around noon and from there we venture into the wilderness, to the very heart of Fagaras Mountains! We go 1h30 min off-road in a 4x4 vehicle and then hike for 15-30 min to arrive at our beautiful cabin! True to Romanian hospitality, we begin our stay with a glass of organic sparkling wine and appetizers while admiring the superb views of Pecineagu Lake from the cabin. We take a short walk to explore the area and look for forest-dwelling locals. We come back before dusk, as that is the best time to spot wildlife roaming free in their natural habitat. In the evening we feast on a delicious menu and local wines!

    Days 2 & 3: Hiking and wildlife observation trips

    Wake up early in the morning for wildlife and bird observation while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee. Look for bears, wild boars, red deers, roe deers or foxes from the comfort of the hide! After a hearty 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 a delicious home-cooked dinner.
    On the last day, we wake up in the morning for another chance to spot wildlife. After a delicious breakfast, we slowly start our descent and return to civilization. Please remember the trips will be customised according to your fitness level and/or medical conditions.

    There's a strong reason we call it a "nature observatory" - prepare for some spectacular views: sunrise, sunset, night sky - all perfect for admiring and nature photography!

  • 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 - or see them in the wild - and 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?

  • [Tour extension] Stay an extra night in the wilderness

    [Tour extension] Stay an extra night in the wilderness

    For an extra 173 Euro/person [with everything included] you can stay another night 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!
