Full description
You will be picked up at the hotel by your travel guide and start your adventurous day trip.

Visit the bear reserve in Zarnesti, a wildlife sanctuary in the Carpathian Mountains. Here, you will have the opportunity to see bears climbing trees, playing in the water pools or just lazing in the meadows.

Here’s the place where real bears and teddy bears live together. Visit the Teddy Bear museum and see over 200 bears from all around the world. Some of the main attractions are two giant bears which were a gift from the Royal Family of Great Britain.

Your itinerary also includes the Bran Castle, which ranks as one of the world’s spookiest places as the "Dracula Castle." Step inside the mysterious rooms and dark passageways to discover the bloody legend of the most famous vampire. On your way to the car, don’t forget to buy souvenirs.

Next, proceed to Brasov. The city was founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 and it’s surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. Walk on the one of the kind Sforii Street – the narrowest street in Europe and take as many pictures as you want. Since this city is the point of connection between Transylvania, Wallachia and Moldavia, you will find Romanian, German and Hungarian sweets made from original recipes.

Spend 3-hours at Aventura Parc, a challenging place meant to test your skills in the open. Built among the trees a few meters above the ground, it brings together all the obstacles one can encounter in nature but in a secure environment. It includes sport activities meant to be spent in a pleasant way with friends and family.

The park includes 14 trails with progressive difficulty for every age. The tracks spread across 2.5 hectares of forest, making Parc Aventura Brasov the largest one of its kind in Romania.

This tour also includes a Tyrolean traverse over the lake in order to increase the adventure.

Booked this tour last minute and had the most amazing experience with our guide Florin. Super nice guy and his car was comfortable and spotless. It ended up being just myself and my girlfriend, so it was a very tailored trip. Florin has great knowledge of Romania, but we also talked about other random stuff and he’s really easy to get on with. Would 100% recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the bears and Dracula’s castle!
