Explore Romania

Famed for its gothic castles and Dracula legend, Romania smashes beyond these stereotypes as your expedition will weave you through the majestic Carpathian Mountains, take you around the mystical Red lake dam also known as Killer lake and into rural villages still using traditional horse and carts.

Take a step back in time and enjoy the beauty of Transylvania and the warmth of rural Romanian hospitality. Stretch your legs amongst stunning, untouched scenery and soak up the well-preserved customs and traditions.
