Surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains and the forests of Transylvania, Brasov makes a great base for exploring Romania’s untamed wilderness. From alpine hiking and skiing to close encounters with brown bears, here’s how you can enjoy some of Eastern Europe’s most spectacular outdoor activities.

Hiking 
Hikers of all abilities will find trails to wander in Piatra Craiului National Park, set in the crags and valleys of the Carpathians. Trek through Zarnesti Gorge and get a glimpse of Romanian country life while passing traditional alpine villages. Bucegi Natural Park offers trails that run between sheer cliff drops and rock formations, while a short loop at Piatra Mare Mountain leads to the narrow Seven Ladders Canyon, where you can scale waterfalls and cliffs using ladders and bridges. The Fagaras range of the Carpathians, with glacier lakes and panoramic views reachable by the Transfagarasan Highway, is also close enough for a day trip.

Bear Watching 
Brasov is in the heart of Romania’s brown bear country—one of the last wild bear habitats in Europe. Venture deep into the Transylvanian forests with a ranger guide to observe some of these creatures roaming in the wild, plus other wildlife such as lynx, deer, and wild boar. Most tours are limited to a small group to avoid disturbing the bears, and some boast an 80 percent chance of bear sightings.

4x4 and Off-Roading Tours
Escape modern civilization and reach remote, unspoiled sections of the central Romanian wilderness on a 4x4 day trip. Go off-roading through Transylvanian forests, Carpathian mountain roads, and Old World villages that seem untouched by time. Both half-day and full-day 4x4 tours are available from Brasov.
