Bogdan With: Bogdan 5
Let's explore the beautiful Prahova Valley sights and Romanian Carpathian Mountains on this day trip from Bucharest! First, we go hiking to the superb 7 Ladders Canyon, designed by nature millions of years ago, and cross it while admiring nature up close. Then, we can visit any of the nearby attractions: Peles, Bran or Cantacusino Castles, or Brasov!


Moments to expect during this 7 Ladder Canyon hiking tour:

  • Pick up the hiking trail to the 7 Stairs Canyon

    After a ~3h drive from Bucharest, we enter the Carpathian woodlands. To reach the Canyon we will hike for about 2 hours along a dense valley and following the stream of a river. You will experience raw nature, beautiful waterfalls and the cleanest fresh air! On our way back we can choose the same route, go on one that's more difficult and longer or use the 2,1 Zip-Line with 21 possible routes through the forest - a real adventure!

  • Climbing the 7 Stairs Canyon!

    Climbing the 7 Stairs Canyon!

    The Canyon was created by natural forces thousands of years ago when chalkstones ruptured and formed a narrow canyon with 7 waterfalls inside, some as high as 15m! The Canyon is climbed though a series of narrow stairs and ladders, some even going up vertically! You will have a very close encounter with nature and admire its beauty in this natural wonder! Crossing the Canyon takes about 20-30 min.

  • Sightseeing time: Brasov Old Town OR Peles Castle

    Sightseeing time: Brasov Old Town OR Peles Castle

    After our hiking adventure, it's time to go sightseeing: we will visit Brasov Old Town or the superb Peles Castle. In Brasov I will guide you through the city and show you its major landmarks and famous narrow streets with colourful medieval houses. Peles Castle is the jewel among all Romanian castles, a beautiful summer residence built for the royal family at the end of 19th century!
