Wine from several Eastern European countries are – finally – attracting recognition and favour around the world with their authenticity, distinguished character and, especially, their ability to satisfy that desire for ‘something different’. Romania is certainly one of those countries. Although mainly known for its easily approachable, good value wines produced in significant volumes by large wineries such as Cramele Recaş, Halewood and Jidvei, its more hidden side is now gaining real ground. Impressively crafted wines from boutique and medium-sized estates are yielding distinction and depth, often featuring the most expressive native varieties. There are only about 145 of these quality-focused wine cellars, in Romania – a rather limited number, considering that there are nearly 180,000ha of vineyards dispersed throughout the country’s eight official main wine regions.

Their breeders appreciate them enormously. At the moment, our partner have 22 dogs available for tours and with their help we walk all day through the Harghita Mountains. We propose a magical one-day trip in the mountains of Harghita, where we offer you one of the most beautiful experiences of the cold season. Besides the vast heritage of mansions and thermal baths that it possesses, the counties of Harghita and Covasna offer some of the wildest and most spectacular landscapes in all of Europe.

Romania is a mountain paradise. Experiences for all adventurers, beginners or advanced, are just a couple hours away from any destination and we have the possibility to transform these mountain tours into complex experiences. Latin for ‘iron way’, a via ferrata is the bridge between scrambling and climbing. It requires very little equipment and a good head for heights. It is a route marked out by metal rails and rungs embedded into the mountain so it’s easy to follow and a great way to tackle otherwise impassable cliffs and ledges, overcoming individual and team limits. Canyoning harmoniously combines climbing and rappelling techniques with hiking, all taking place in a canyon, in the direction of the valley, descending on the water and using specific equipment. The canyons are very narrow valleys, with steep walls, which are found in mountainous areas most of the time and where the water dug deep, by erosion in limestone, forming natural slides. Test your courage and adventurous spirit in our programs full of adventure and adrenaline on some of the most beautiful and exciting via ferrata or canyoning routes in Romania.
Dive into the grounds of the most hidden caves and discover the spectacularity of the lesser known caves in Romania. There are many different reasons that drive us towards speleology: for some it is the sporting or technical aspect, for others it is the urge for adventure and ‘strong’ emotions or the curiosity to know ‘what lies beyond’, or even scientific research. A world of silent beauty lies undiscovered in the wilderness of caves. This unforgettable realm combines a fragile environment with unexpected danger. You must be prepared to deal with both. With little more than a head lamp and physical challenges like crawling through tight spaces and wriggling down tunnels, just make sure you’re ready to get a little dirty. Romania sets a veritable European record when it comes to its number of caves, over 12,000. Apuseni Mountains, the lowest-altitude part of the Carpathians, are especially famous for an impressive landscape of 1,500 caves that attracts many visitors even if only a few of them are open to the public. The others remain mysterious places explored only by scientists.
Romania, the most beautiful Eastern European country, is known for its amazing nature and breath-taking scenery. But did you know you could indulge in modern beauty & health therapies at these top Romanian Spa & Wellness Centers around the country? The country’s therapy tradition dates back to the ancient Hippocratic epoch where bathing in mineral waters served as body cleansing and well-being, while treating a wide range of diseases. Many of the settlements near mineral and thermal spring waters were built by the Romans during their occupation of the Dacian territories. They further developed thermal and mineral baths the Dacians already had known and used before. In the XIXth and XXth centuries, the culture of bathing flourished. A series of scientific societies were founded which contributed to this process. Today, Romania has over 60 balneal resorts and SPA therapy is getting the spotlight not only from the medical field but also from wellness investors. Romania offers all the bathing minerals that can be used in the whole range of specific spa treatments.
Romania, with its rich folk tradition, is particularly fertile ground for traditional-handicraft-hunting: think intricately painted eggs, ceramic bowls and vases, colourful folk costumes, leatherwork, linen and lace. Many of the designs on offer feel fresh and modern. Although they differ from one region to another, bright colours and intricate designs are the distinguishing features of Romania’s handicrafts. Woodcarving is prominent throughout the Carpathian Mountains, and especially in the province of Maramures, home to the so-called “wood civilization”. The woollen carpets and rugs, woven on vertical looms and hand-dyed using natural colours are often seen on the walls of Romanian homes. Egg decoration is done with wax and natural dyes and has always been an integral part of the spring Easter festival of renewal. About 30 pottery centres are working throughout Romania, each with its own distinctive style. The icons painted on glass reveal the beautiful, imaginative, naïve art of the numerous popular painters. Ceremonial masks are still very much in use in ancient pagan originated festivals, uncovering a long-forgotten world of myths and mysteries.
Romania is home to over 13,000 plant and animal species, including the largest population of large carnivores (wolf, bear and lynx) in Europe. Romania owns almost 65% of the virgin forests of Europe (excluding Russia), and this valuable resource constitutes a much-needed habitat for the conservation of species that depend on such a biotope. Another valuable resource is the meadows, especially those in Transylvania, a habitat that has almost disappeared in the rest of Europe. You can watch for wildlife in Romania all year round. Bears are out and about from May to November, becoming most active in autumn, when they’re stocking up on berries for hibernation. Spring, meanwhile, is your chance to see cubs straight out of the den. The best time to see wolves is in January and February, when the mating season brings out courting couples, plus some Bram Stoker-approved howling. You’ll be in the Carpathians for most wildlife holidays, so also keep in mind what sort of weather you’d prefer: sunny hikes past clover meadows, snowmelt-filled waterfalls or autumnal forests?
