Staying in small mountain villages, you will get to know the locals and their culture, while tackling the rugged wilderness and the region’s impressive mountain ranges. The itinerary also travels out to the King’s Rock National Park, which was home to the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project, a conservation programme to protect and monitor wolves, lynx and bears. And of course you cannot leave Transylvania without the obligatory visit to the castle of Romania’s most famous son, Count Dracula.
