Fascinating holiday in the Piatra Craiului Mountains of central Romania, one of the wildest corners of the Carpathian Mountains. The holiday is based around the ideas that for centuries the locals have existed in harmony with a rich variety of rare wildlife, including Europe’s highest concentration of bears, wolves and lynx. You’ll spend your time walking through spectacular canyons, virgin forests and Saxon villages. You’ll stay in a guesthouse owned by a local family, providing a good standard of accommodation and delicious food. There is a visit to the Beaver Reintroduction Programme and the former research centre for the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project, which is home to two hand-raised wolves, Poiana and Crai. I see from the very positive comments of people who have done this, that bears are sometimes seen.
