Your travel guide will pick you up at the hotel and you will start your day of adventure.
Our first stop will be at the bear reserve in Zarnesti, a wildlife sanctuary in the heart of the Carpathian Mountains. Your visit includes the sight of bears climbing trees, playing in the water pools or just lazing in the meadows. More than 70 brown bears live together with their “brothers” from the Zarnesti Teddy Bear Museum which contains over 200 bears from all around the world. Some of the main attractions are two giant bears that were a gift from the Royal Family of Great Britain.
Next on our itinerary is Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle, one of the world’s spookiest places. Inside you will be amazed by the legends about the most famous vampire in the world, passing through the mysterious rooms and dark passageways. On your way back to the car, don’t forget to buy souvenirs to remind you of your trip to Transylvania.
Next, the road takes us to Brasov, the city founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211. You will be charmed by this beautiful town surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. We are going to walk on the narrowest street in Europe called Sforii Street (the Rope Street). You will want to take home as many sweets made after original Hungarian and German recipes as you can because they are delicious and you can’t find them anywhere else.
Next, you will test your skills as we enter Aventura Parc, which spread across 2.5 hectares of forest, making it the largest one of its kind in Romania. Placed in a secure environment, it’s the best place to spend a lovely day with friends and family. The park includes 14 different trails marked by colors with progressive difficulty for every age. We also included a Tyrolean traverse over the lake in order to increase the adventure. You will spend 3 hours in this place built among the trees, with obstacles that you can encounter in nature.
Afterwards, you will be transferred back to Bucharest.
Departure at 07:00 and return to Bucharest at 20:00.
