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.

Built by a professional photographer, the bear hides in the Tusnad area are designed to offer tourists the best bear watching experience in Romania. A one-way mirror window prevents bears from seeing inside so that tourists can safely watch these animals from as close as 10 meters. Sometimes they even come right to the windows. The bear hides are specially built on the ground, at the same level with the animals and they are completely safe. Moreover, they are perfect for professional and also amateur photographers. Inside, there is enough space to sit down and relax while enjoying this wonderful experience. We are against wildlife hunting and because we promote sustainable tourism, we want our guests to see living bears in their natural habitat, not at the ZOO or in a reservation. You will be picked up from your location in Brasov and taken to Tusnad area, where you will participate at the bear watching activity. In the end, you will be dropped off at your location in Brasov.

Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions, Brasov is one of the most visited places in Romania. The location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and western Europe, together with certain tax exemptions, allowed Saxon merchants to obtain considerable wealth and exert a strong political influence in the region. This was reflected in the city's German name, Kronstadt, as well as in its Latin name, Corona, meaning Crown City (hence, the coat of arms of the city which is a crown with oak roots). Fortifications were erected around the city and continually expanded, with several towers maintained by different craft guilds, according to medieval custom.
