Florin With: Florin
If you're in Sibiu you'll see the mighty Fagaras Mountains, the highest in Romania, from everywhere. And if you're into hiking, then I know you'll want to go. So join me on this one day adventure to conquer the main ridge of the highest mountains in Romania and summit 3 peaks over 2,500m!

Moments to expect in the hiking tour from Sibiu:
