What To Expect
Continue on to see the natural splendors of Piatra Craiului National Park. During a scenic 45-minute drive, your guide discusses your hiking route options and decides on a course suitable for your fitness level and hiking experience.
The first stop is Lilicilor Cave, a Jurassic cavern inhabited by hundreds of bats. Admire limestone formations and gaze at the endangered bats that reside in the cave’s crevices.
Then, embark on a moderate hike that takes you through the dramatic landscapes of Piatra Craiului National Park: see mist-shrouded pine forests, meadows filled with grazing sheep, ice-capped gorges, and traditional mountain villages.
After working up an appetite, stop at the oldest guesthouse in the national park to sample handmade cheese and feast on a hearty lunch. Enjoy farm-fresh ingredients and opt to purchase wine or beer as a welcome reward.
Following a further one hour of walking, return to the vehicle and bid your guide farewell after hotel drop-off.
