,,My 11 year old son was thrilled after his first ever one day trip in the mountains. He’s normally lazy but after a trip that took one full day he came home so happy that he asked for the next one. We will definitely repeat the experience and we also registered for the one week camp. Thank you, Dan!”
DETAILED PROGRAM – FOREST PATHS, SPRINGS AND WATERFALLS IN BUCEGI MOUNTAINS GUIDED TOUR:
Departure from Bucharest early in the morning. First, we will drive to Prahova Valley, passing through the beautiful mountain resorts; on the left and on the right you can admire Bucegi and Baiului Mountains.
A bit further more mountains pop up: Piatra Craiului and Iezer far in the back.
Eventually we will arrive in Bran area and then we will make a turn to our hiking spot. For the next hours you will enjoy hiking in Bucegi Mountains.
The hike starts on a forest road, having the river on the right side. As we continue the hike will go deeper in the forest. Soon we will have to jump on the wet rocks and practice our balance.
A bit further we will have to cross the river using the big logs that make the improvised bridge; it will be fun, no doubt.
The next challenge is the short uphill that will lead us to a breathtaking view. From the meadow you will have a great view with the western part of the mountains.
A few more springs to cross, some forest paths, and we get to a splendid waterfall. No rush here, just enjoy the scenery.
After a well deserved break we will descend back to where we started. And what better way to end a day than to have a meal at a nice restaurant before we get back to Bucharest?
After dinner we will call it a wrap and say Goodbye to the beautiful Bucegi Mountains!
