Your day by day program

1
The first night at the foot of the mountains

The adventure begins in the small town of Zărnești, at the guesthouse with welcoming hosts waiting for you with a great dinner. What better place to spend the night than at the base of the mountains we are going to discover?

Dinner included

We reach the Curmătura mountain hut

A new day, a new adventure!
Today we are really going into the National Park. We walk towards the starting point of today\'s hike: Botorg\'s fountain, from where we get fresh spring water. We start to climb through the dense forest, on the path covered with copper leaves, towards Curmătura hut. We will cross the Zănoaga glade, always looking for the majestic ridges that surround us and seem to encourage us on our way.
Once we arrive, we\'ll catch our breath at the mountain hut, taking in the mountain air and the landscapes. After lunch, we head back to the accommodation through Zărnești Gorges - a place that will surely surprise you with its beauty and uniqueness.

By bike or on foot, depending on the weather!

After breakfast, weather permitting, we start with fresh forces on a warm-up tour: from Zărnești through Poiana Mărului - Holbav - Vulcan. An easy route and accessible to any lover of the outdoors. We take full advantage to admire the surroundings.
In case the weather is not favorable for cycling, we leave the bikes and do another splendid hike. We will wander the Perșani mountains, and we will have superb views over the nearby villages.
On the way back to Zărnești, we will stop in the village of Vulcan for a hearty meal prepared at the cauldron in open air, in the courtyard of the fortified evangelical church. If the pastor is there, we will attend a short history lesson and presentation of the location.
For dessert, we will have Kürtőskalács, made in front of us. A real feast!
In the evening we go back to the pension.

Villages lost in the mountains & an ethnography lesson

The last day of adventure will take us on the paths of the Bucegi Mountains, in bucolic landscapes that will offer you superb panoramas of the Piatra Craiului Ridge. We will discover the scattered villages, typical of the mountain area, where time seems to have stood still.
In order to gain strength after so much wandering, we will stop at the Stoian family\'s house, in the village of Fundata. We have the opportunity to visit a house more than 100 years old, preserved from generation to generation, we admire folk costumes, old pictures - all revealing the life of the people of these places, which seem to come to life from the fairy tales with Princes and stone castles. The host will serve us a sweet, homemade snack.
After such a treat we will head back to the pension.
We will end this holiday with dinner and a campfire, where we will share the stories of these days full of adventure, emotions and discoveries spent in the mountains.
