Tour Overview

Join us to a 2-day adventure private tour in Fagaras Mountains! They are very much like the Alps, which made the French geographer Emmanuel de Martonne call them "the Alps of Transylvania", a name that has stuck to them. Drive on Transfagarasan Highway as know as "the Road to the Sky", "the Road to the Clouds", "the Best Driving Road in the World" and even "A spectacular Monument to Earth-Moving Megalomania". See one of the most beautiful glacial lakes in Romania — Balea Lake! It is said that the name "Fagaras" is coming from the word "fagar", an old word which represents a large old beech forest. In ancient times, the bottom part of the Fagaras Mounatins were covered with Oak forest. Now remains "Dumbrava Vadului", where, among the oak trees, we have daffodils (Narcissus stellaris), locally known as coprine. Days of departure: Sunday – Thursday (during the week-ends it is too crowded on the road and in the gorge).
