During this trip the group will spend 4 nights in comfortable local hotels and pensions in Sinaia, Brasov and Zarnesti (2 nights) and 3 nights in mountain huts. All accommodation is arranged on a twin sharing basis in hotels and pensions. If you are travelling by yourself you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. For the 4 hotel nights, single rooms are available for a supplementary cost. Additional hotel nights in Sinaia are also available. For extra night hotel prices and single supplement costs please refer to the dates and prices page of the trip on our website. Hotels are subject to availability and prices may vary.
Accommodation in mountain huts in Romania is usually simple dormitory style. Some of the mountain huts are quite rustic with only basic washing and toilet facilities due to their remote positions. However, what they may lack in terms of facilities is more than compensated for by their atmosphere and their mountain locations. The huts are very hospitable and a great way of meeting Romanian and other eastern European mountain walkers. By using these mountain huts we are able to remain high in the mountains and undertake the traverse of the Fagaras Ridge and ascend Moldoveanu. The mountain huts provide bedding and generally we recommend that a sheet sleeping bag is all that is needed. However, those who feel the cold should consider taking a lightweight sleeping bag for the night at the Podragu Hut (Day 4) where it can be quite cold.
