Day 1

Upon your arrival in Romania, you'll be greeted by our experienced guides. They will lead you on some of the most spectacular hiking trails in the Carpathians. But first, you must reach what will become your main adventure base - Busteni, which is a lovely mountain town located at the bottom of the Bucegi Mountains. Busteni is also a popular mountain resort with fantastic views and lots of tourism opportunities, including great hiking trails. The accommodations are at the rustic Silva Hotel. Before you rest in your comfortable room for the night, you have time to explore the surroundings and dine at a nice restaurant.

Day 2

The next day your hiking experience in Romania begins. We'll embark on Predal - Garbova Chalet - Azuga route. It starts easy, but it gets more difficult on the way up. The total duration of the route is between 4 and 5 hours. The scenery is truly breathtaking, so get ready for some great photo opportunities. We stop at Garbova Chalet for a quick lunch and then we descend to Azuga - a small resort town famous for its beer and slopes. We'll rest for the night at a comfy inn in Azuga.

Day 3

We continue our hiking trip in Baiului Mountains following a more challenging route: Azuga - Baiul Mare Peak - Sinaia. We'll climb to a staggering 1895m at Baiul Mare. It's a great effort, but the view at the top is worth it, offering a sweeping panorama of the surrounding crests. We then gently descend to Sinaia Resort, also called the Pearl of the Carpathians for its elegant beauty. The duration of the route is about 5-6 hours. Before sunset, we crash in our hotel rooms in Busteni.

Day 4

On the last day we'll accomplish a tour de force. We'll hike on a route that takes more than 6 hours to complete: Busteni - Costila Glade - Poiana Izvoarelor Chalet - Diham Chalet. But don't worry the trails are not too demanding and the view is amazing, especially at Costila Glade. We'll spend the night at Diham Chalet and the next morning you'll begin your return journey with plenty of photos to show to your friends.
