Memorable parts? The doable yet challenging (for me) walks combined with cultural learning. Experiencing the remote villages, lifestyle and food in local accommodation. Sharing it with two terrific guides and a small group of companionable people. Tips? Pack light, take a hat and a good pair of boots and be prepared to soak up a the traditional culture and the magnificent vistas Romania has to offer. Local benefits? I would like to think it did via the local accommodation... (more)Helen Wildash

Memorable parts? Romania is a very beautiful country and it was exciting to visit it in spring when everything was in bloom and the landscape was turning to green.
