Romania Adventure Tours

One of Eastern Europe’s more enigmatic destinations, a Romania adventure tour reveals a land of alpine mountains and medieval traditions, deserted beaches and fantastic hospitality… and of course, a vampire myth or two. Braşov in the heart of Transylvania is a charming medieval city. Wander the cobbled lanes past Baroque façades, Old Saxon architecture, visit the fortress of Cetăţuia Braşovului and wander up Rope Street, the narrowest in Europe or visit Rasnov Castle.

Romania adventures

Our Romania adventure tours visit Braşov, an excellent base for exploring the surrounding Carpathian Mountains where the air is fresh and the people friendly. Even if you don’t believe in vampires, a visit to nearby Bran Castle is worth it just to explore the Gothic fairy-tale structure. Bran is (incorrectly) said to have been the home of 15th century Walachian Prince Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad the Impaler or Dracula. A Romania adventure tour is the best way to explore it’s largest city and capital Bucharest and wander along Calea Victoriei to Piata Revolutiei, site of the Romanian Athenaeum and the former Royal Palace. Visit the French old centre with its own Arc de Triomphe and enjoy the world’s second biggest building, the Palace of Parliament and the open air Village Museum if you have time.

Katie

"We completed the Sacred Valley and Inca Trail trip with Tucan. It was a 7 day 6 night trip and all the accommodation and most of the meals were provided in the price. The guides provided were very friendly and very knowledgeable and the 2 guides stayed with the group for the whole trip. The setup of the hike was amazing, the porters were great and prepared delicious meals and prepared all the tents so when you arrive at the destination you could relax. I found the whole trip great value for money and would recommend Tucan to anyone about to take on the Inca Trail."
