Holiday Overview


  • Visit Bran Castle, Peles Palace and the medieval town of Brasov
  • Explore the UNESCO- listed traditional Saxon village of Viscri
  • Walk the Bucegi and Fagaras massifs of the Carpathian Mountains
  • Discover Bucharest and visit Ceaucescu`s Palace of the Parliament

Hidden away from tourism for the duration of the Communist regime, Transylvania is an unexplored land of delights.  Magical Transylvania has it's own distinct identity defined by the people, the culture and the Carpathian Mountains which arc majestically through the region.  Known as the legendary home of Count Dracula, Transylvania is not only a land of myth and stories, but also a land of virgin forests, beautiful mountain ranges, breathtaking scenery and welcoming people.  This holiday includes relaxed walks in the Carpathian Mountains, including the Bucegi, Fagaras and Piatra Craiului massifs alongside the cultural highlghts of the area.  We start with a visit to the fairy-tale Peles Palace and take a day-hike on the Bucegi Plateau, where we are rewarded by awe-inspiring views before transferring to the ancient Saxon village of Viscri.  Here we enjoy a stay for 2 nights in homestay accommodation in the heart of this remote village, a favourite place of Prince Charles.  Our simple accommodation is charming, with rooms furnished in old-fashioned Saxon style and staying with families means we can sample the local specialties whilst fully experiencing the local culture.  Driving up into the Fagaras mountains on the jaw-dropping Transfagaraian Road, voted by Top Gear as the best drive in the world, we hike up to a high pass with ridge-top views.  In the Piatra Craiului National Park we walk through virgin forests before enjoying a traditional BBQ dinner with our local hosts.  Next is Bran Castle, the legendary home of Count Dracula, and we arrive in style by local horse and cart!  After an overnight in the atmospheric medieval town of Brasov, with its distinctive Baroque architecture, we end our holiday in the capital of Bucharest by taking a tour of the city's sights including the Palace of the Parliament, former home of Nicolae Ceauscescu, before enjoying a final celebratory dinner!

Is this holiday for you?

The walking on this holiday in Romania is not difficult or sustained.  There are walks on 5 days of the holiday, with the walk time varying from 2 to 5 hours.  The pace will be relatively relaxed and gentle, with only moderate amounts of ascent and descent.  We will be walking on a variety of trails from rough country roads to shepherd's paths in the mountains.  The paths are good with no difficult sections and no degree of exposure.  While there is sufficient walking on each day to satisfy regular hikers, it is intended that this should be a discovery holiday with a gentle pace that allows everyone to experience and learn more about the culture of Transylvania.  Please note that some of the walks can be optional for those who wish to take it easy.   Accommodation throughout will be at hotels, other than the 2 nights at homestay accommodation in Viscri.  This accommodation is more akin to a simple guesthouse than "homestay."  Rooms are twin-shared and some rooms are en-suite.   The rooms are all traditionally and comfortably furnished and all meals are home-cooked and delicious.  Whilst without hotel facilities, the welcome here will be very warm.

Holiday Itinerary

  • Meet at Bucharest Airport. Drive to the town of Sinaia.

    Rendezvous at the airport where KE Land Only package services begin. We drive to the town of Sinaia, also known as the ‘Pearl of the Carpathians’. Situated beneath the Bucegi Mountains in the beautiful
    Prahova Valley, Sinaia has fast become Romania’s premier ski town, although a short walk off the main street will quickly lead you to discover fascinating houses built in traditional Transylvanian style. The town was the traditional summer residence of the Romanian royal family and in the late afternoon we'll pay a visit to the famous Peles Palace Originally a summer residence for King Carol I, the fairytale turrets of the castle set
    against the spectacular backdrop of the Bucegi mountains give a magical air to the place. We’ll take a guided tour through the remarkable halls and rooms of the castle, furnished in various styles, but all exquisite in their craftsmanship and featuring exotic materials from around the world. The town is situated around 100kms from Bucharest, and the drive will take approximately 2 hours. KE Land Only package services begin with dinner at our overnight accommodation. Note that there is a single-timed transfer to Sinaia, although it is possible to travel independently to Sinaia by train from Bucharest.

  • Transfer to Busteni. Cable car and walk on the Bucegi Plateau. Transfer to the Viscri Saxon village.

    We take a short drive to the small resort town of Busteni for our exploration of the Bucegi Plateau. From Busteni the imposing rock buttresses of the Bucegi are at their most impressive. The Bucegi Mountains are part of the South Carpathian chain, to the east the mountains slope steeply towards the Prahova Valley, on the summit the
    mountains form a high plateau where wind and rain have turned the rocks into spectacular figures, such as the sphinx and the Babele (old woman). We reach the plateau, which sits at around 2000m, by way of a cable car and enjoy a walk that takes in the famous rock formations and fine views. A longer detour, weather permitting, can take us to the Caraiman (Hero’s)
    Cross from where there are fantastic views of the Prahova Valley. Returning to Buseni by cable car, we transfer by road (approximately 2 hours) to the remove Saxon village of Viscri. Here we stay in characterful
    and welcoming homestay accommodation, which enables us to both enjoy the peace of the village, and experience Saxon living. Home-cooked food gives a taste of traditional specialities. The accommodation is not luxurious, but is comfortable with rooms all furnished in traditional style. Some rooms are ensuite, and some with shared bathrooms.

  • Explore Viscri village, UNESCO fortified church and follow the Royal Walk.

    During the Middle Ages large numbers of German-speaking Saxons settled in Transylvania, which was then part of the Hungarian empire. They were invited to settle in the Tarnave plateau between Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibiu by the Hungarian King, Andras II, who wanted to push the borders of the lands of the Hungarian crown further east. The result of hundreds of years of Saxon settlement is a unique cultural and
    architectural heritage which includes many towns and fortified churches built between the 13th and 15th centuries. The rolling hills are filled with fortified Saxon churches, leaving one feeling lost in time past. Viscri is
    one of these villages, and with no real motorable access road for many years retains an isolated charm. The town boasts a UNESCO world heritage site fortified church dating back to 1185, with attached tower. Today we have a full day to explore the village on foot, paying visits to the blacksmiths, the brick makers, the charcoal makers and the bee keepers. We will follow the route of the “Royal Walk” enjoyed by Prince Charles, who is a frequent visitor to Transylvania and owns several
    properties in the area and was recently involved in a documentary called Wild Carpathia (shown regularly at www.travelchannel.co.uk). Our visit will also include the church, the local museum and the church tower so we can enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside. For those so inclined, if the weather is not too hot, we may walk on to the next village for further exploration of this lovely area. Walk time today will depend on the group's interests, but could be from 3 - 5 hours. Overnight in our
    lovely local homestay accommodation.

  • Transfer to Brasoc via Transfagarasan Highway and walk the Balea Lake Circuit. Transfer to Zarnesti.

    The Fagaras are the highest and most dramatic mountains of the Romanian Carpathians and form the ancient border between Transylvania and Wallachia. The massif comprises of a ridge some 75kms long and it rises sharply from the plains. Departing Viscri we take
    the Transfagarasan Highway (lauded by BBC Top Gear presenters as the best road in the world) which was constructed between 1970 and 1974 during the reign of Nicolae Ceaucescu as a response to the Soviet
    invasion of Czechoslovakia. We drive up to a pass at 2035m from where we walk the Balea Lake circuit. The trail leads up to a ridge from where there are panoramic views of the entire Fagaras mountain range, and we have the option to detour to the nearby summit of Vanatorarea Lui Buteaunu Peak (2509m). After enjoying the views we descend to our vehicle and transfer to the small and attractive town of Zarnesti, where we spend the night in a local pension.

  • Walk through Zarnesti Gorge and explore the Piatra Craiului National Park.

    Today we explore the Piatra Craiulu (King’s Rock) National Park on foot. The park formed the backdrop to the Oscar-winning film Cold Mountain starring Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger and Jude Law and boasts
    grandiose and unspoiled scenery. Our walk takes us through Zarnesti Gorge, a deep and narrow limestone canyon, where the final scenes of Cold Mountain were filmed, and ancient pine forests. The area is rich in
    plant and birdlife: we may see Alpine Swifts, Crag Martins, Grey Wagtails, Dippers, Buzzards and possibly Wallcreepers. We’ll stop for lunch (warm soup and tea) at the Curmatura Hut (1470m). Depending on the group and the weather, there is the possibility to continue to Piatra Mica peak We will return to Zarnesti to enjoy a traditional Barbecue dinner. A traditional horse and cart ride takes us to a pleasant meadow situated beneath the classic knife-edge ridge of Piatra Craiului. Here our
    hosts will prepare a traditional barbecue for us and keep us entertained. This is an idyllic location to spend the evening. Overnight in our pension accommodation in Zarnesti.

  • Walk from Zarnesti, traditional horse and cart ride to spectacular Bran Castle. Transfer to Brasov.

    Bran Castle, reputed to be the home of Transylvania’s most famous resident, Count Dracula, is a must-see for any visitor to the area. This spectacular castle is perched on top of a 60m rocky outcrop and looms
    menacingly over the village of Bran below. The castle was built by local Saxons in 1382 to defend the Bran pass against invading Turks. It maintained its strategic position for hundreds of years before eventually becoming one of the summer residences of the Romanian Royal family. It became a museum during the Communist era, although ownership has now reverted to relatives of the last Romanian king. The Dracula legend
    is very important to Transylvanians, with the real Dracula being Vlad Tepes (the Impaler), who was born in nearby Sighisoara in 1431. He was bloodthirsty, but was not a vampire – that was a romanticisation on the part of Bram Stoker. Vampires are an important part of Romanian
    folklore, with seventh-born children apparently being susceptible to this affliction! Bran Castle is often referred to as Dracula’s castle, and although it looks worthy of the legend, it was never home to Vlad the Impaler, although he did stay here on one occasion! Hiking from Zarnesti to Bran Castle, we admire the views en route of old homes scattered across the hills. A horse and cart ride along the main village road makes us feel almost like locals using traditional methods of transportation and allows us to make a fitting dramatic entrance! We will spend time visiting the castle, and then head to the souvenir market to check out the wide range of Dracula gifts. Local handmade artefacts, produce and cheese
    are also for sale. Later we will transfer to the medieval town of Brasov where we’ll have time for an optional tour of the city and have dinner. Overnight in a hotel in Brasov.

  • Sightseeing tour of Brasov. Transfer to Bucharest, city tour and visit to Palace of the Parliament.

    Brasov is a must-see town for anyone visiting Transylvania. Surrounded by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian mountains, the town is resplendent with baroque and gothic architecture. Established in the 13th
    century by Teutonic Knights, the town was settled by the Saxons. The city has a distinct medieval feel and has been used as a backdrop for many films. We’ll enjoy a sightseeing walk around the city before leaving for Bucharest. On arrival in Bucharest we’ll have a short city tour that will include a visit to the Palace of the Parliament, former home of former dictator, Nicolae Ceacescu, and the world’s second largest building (after
    the US Pentagon). Controversy surrounded the construction of this building, which cost an estimate €3.3 billion while much of the population of Romania at the time were living in abject poverty. We’ll take the last
    tour of the day at 1545 to have a look inside, and marvel at the marble. Our final night’s dinner will be taken in a Bucharest restaurant, giving us the opportunity to reflect on the experiences of the last week in this most
    welcoming of countries.

  • Departure Day. A single timed transfer to Bucharest Otopeni (Henri Coanda) Airport is provided.

    After breakfast we will transfer to the airport in the mid-morning for flights departing around lunchtime. KE Land Only package services end with the single timed group transfer to Bucharest Otopeni (Henri Coanda) Airport.
    Bucharest is a fascinating city, with plenty to see and do and with interesting museums, pleasant shopping streets, bars and cafes. We can arrange for additional nights at the group hotel should you wish to prolong
    your stay.

You should allow at least 45 minutes to reach Gara de Nord by taxi from Otopeni or Baneasa Airports. A taxi should cost around £15 for this journey. There is a regular (almost hourly) train service from Bucharest Gara de Nord that takes around 90 minutes from Bucharest to reach Sinaia. The cost is approximately £10 for a one way journey. You can check train times on the Romanian State Railway at www.cfr.ro. Although this site has the facility to translate into English, you will need to enter 'Bucuresti Nord' as your place of departure, with 'Sinaia' as your place of arrival. Usually the train times are the same for every day of the week including Sundays. There is no need to book your train ticket in advance, but you should obtain your ticket at Bucharest Gara de Nord ticket office before boarding the train to Sinaia.

The group will be led by a professionally qualified English speaking Romanian Mountain Guide. There will also be a support vehicle and driver for vehicle transfers and transporting our main baggage to our hotels.
We estimate that £120 to £150 should be sufficient to cover your incidental expenditure including tips for local staff, drinks and souvenirs. If you expect to buy considerable quantities of soft drinks, wine or beer, or if you intend to buy expensive souvenirs, you should make an allowance for this. Credit cards can be useful in this respect. Cash can be drawn from ATMs using credit or debit cards at Bucharest Airport (arrivals hall) and in Sinaia, Brasov, Zarnesti and Bucharest. We would recommend you advise your credit/debit card services department in advance that you are travelling to Romania

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ to your guide and the local team.  Tipping is entirely voluntary and should be dependent on good service.  We advise you to tip as a group.

There is no baggage limit other than that imposed by the international carrier (normally 20kg) but we do ask you to restrict your baggage to one piece of main luggage and one small daypack.

All KE clients will receive a FREE KE trek bag.  These have been specially made to stand up to the rigours of adventure travel.  Your KE bag will be posted to you when your trip is guaranteed to run or on receipt of your booking if the trip is already guaranteed.  If you have travelled with us before and already have a KE trek bag you can select an alternative free gift in the booking process.

This holiday involves going to moderately high altitude.  During the course of your trip you will reach altitudes in excess of 2500 metres.  Most people will have no difficulty with this level of altitude but before coming on the holiday, we recommend you read the advice on trekking at high altitude.  You can also talk to one of our trekking experts if you have any concerns about altitude.

The following checklist should help you with your packing. As a general rule, you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment to a minimum.

You must bring the following items:

  • Socks

  • Underwear

  • Trekking trousers

  • Waterproof jacket

  • Daypack 30 litres

  • Washbag, toiletries

  • Antibacterial hand wash

  • Basic First Aid Kit including: Antiseptic cream, throat lozenges, diarrhoea treatment (Imodium) painkillers, plasters and blister treatment, Insect repellent (DEET), and re-hydration salts (Dioralite). Glucose tablets and multi-vitamin tablets are a good idea.

The following items are optional:

  • Trekking poles

  • Camera

  • Pen-knife (remember to put all sharp objects in hold baggage)

  • Travel clothes

  • Small padlock (to lock the trek bag)


For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required. The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. Please check the relevant embassy or consulate for other nationalities. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Visa requirements and charges are subject to change without notice. If you are travelling outside the EU you should have at least 2 blank pages in your passport.

Visa Europe

UK and USA passport holders do not require a visa.

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations. UK residents should obtain a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This entitles you to state provided medical treatment, but is not a substitute for medical travel insurance which is still vital when travelling overseas.

The unit of currency in Romania is the Romanian New Leu.

We recommend you check if you require an adaptor for your electrical items at:


It makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a walking holiday getting some additional exercise.  The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. We would suggest that you adopt a weekly exercise regime leading up to your trip.  Running, cycling and swimming are good for developing better stamina.  Before departure, we suggest that you try to fit in a number of long walks in hilly country.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign & Commonwealth Offices ‘Know before you go’ campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas, and we recommend that all KE travellers take a look at the FCO Travel Advice for their chosen destination on the official FCO website: www.fco.gov.uk. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.
