Overview of this guided hiking tour in Ciucas Mountains, Romania

,,We had a chance to do one day hiking trip with Dan and he’s absolutely epic! He makes sure to provide whatever you need to feel safe, comfortable and entertained in the mountain. It’s such a shame we couldn’t spend more time with him and I’m looking forward to his international tour-guide career 🙂 Thank you Dan for your exceptional service and deep knowledge about Romania you have shared with us! Regards from our Polish Girls Team!” Agnieszka, from Poland

Moving further, the mountain starts to reveal its surprises, one by one: lovely trails, amazing viewpoints all around, the bizarre rocks in all shapes and sizes, the tower of Goliath. Did we mention that the area of Bratocea is one of those places perfect for panoramic photos?
