Transfagarasan Road & Hiking Day Trip in Fagaras Mts

Marian With: Marian 59
Let's go on a day trip to discover Romania's most impressive and highest mountains, Fagaras! We'll admire them while driving on the famous Transfagarasan Road all the way up to the serene Balea Lake. From there we'll hike up the main ridge of Fagaras Mts to get a better view of everything and the 14 peaks of over 2,500m. Ready to see the world from the top?

Moments to expect in the trekking trip on Fagaras Mountains

  • Transfagarasan Highway

    Before we get to the starting point of the hike, get ready for the ultimate driving experience on Transfagarasan Highway - the best road in the world! Admire splendid views of Transylvania's plains and the Fagaras Mountain ridges on both sides! The road is fully open for driving between 1 July - 30 Oct. From November to June, the hike will be taken on a different route in Fagaras Mountains, in the Valea Sambetei area.

  • The ridges of Fagaras Mts.

    The ridges of Fagaras Mts.

    As the highest mountains in Romania, Fagaras are spectacular! The most exciting thing about hiking here is that most trails go on the ridges and crests of the mountains at 2,400+ m altitude, so you'll see many valleys, peaks and glacial lakes! Don't worry - the trails are safe and don't require special equipment; we choose the route depending on your physical condition and weather. The best part happens when there's fog on one side of the crest and clear skies on the other!

  • Balea Lake and other glacial lakes

    Balea Lake and other glacial lakes

    Balea Lake is Romania's highest glacier lake at 2,030m high with clear, ice-cold waters. But in Fagaras Mountains there are many other glacial lakes, all of them with crystal ice-cold waters, soothing to watch!

  • Visit Poenari Castle

    Visit Poenari Castle

    Between 15 June - 31 October you can customise this tour and include a drive to Poenari Castle, 1h South of Balea Lake. This is the 'real Dracula Castle' because, unlike Bran Castle, Vlad Dracula actually lived here. The ruins of the castle have lots of stories and legends to share if you're willing to find out!
