Transylvania Traverse - Trekking in Romania
By: Pam Smith, UK
Lovely guides, well organised picnics from local team and great transport drivers. Although the walking was sometime hard going, our leader was always looking out for us and sorting us out with food and water. She was an excellent guide. The mountains were fantastic and I really enjoyed walking and getting to the top of Moldoveanu. The food was good even in the huts, but we were all very tired on the night in Brasov and would have enjoyed our meal more if it had been in a quite restaurant rather than a noisy tourist one. It would be good to take a flag with the group to take photo's on Moldeveanu Peak as it's that sort of mountain where everyone celebrates.

A good mixture of walking and cultural activities (visiting a couple of castles, monasteries and a museum. A local tour leader provided a great insight into Romanian history and culture which was much appreciated by the group. In addition to the mountain walks, we did a walk around the villages on the final day which was enjoyable too

The trekking was excellent and seeing bears at the bear hide on the last night rounded the trip of nicely.

I just had to e-mail you to thank you for such a wonderful holiday, the experiences that I had in Romania will stay with me forever as will the friends that I've made and I'll certainly be travelling with you again. I have to say that our local guide, Razvan Prunea was excellent. He inspired us all with confidence, he was also kind and excellent fun. I pushed myself quite a bit, the scrambling parts were quite testing especially in the wet conditions that we had. Seeing wild Chamois and brown bears in their natural habitat was memorable, as was being on a summit in thunder and lightning- night hiking in the rain- they were all firsts. The most treasured memories are experiencing all of the above with the fantastic friends that I've made.
