A wild environment
Travelling through Europe the Danube River ends it's journey on the Romanian Black Sea Coast just south of the Ukrainian border. This unique area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to over 300 species of birds as well as 45 species of freshwater fish and in the high country of the Carpathian Mountains you will find wolves, bears and lynx to name but a few rare animals living freely and thriving in the wild. The eco-tourism programmes are amongst the most successful programmes in Europe and have gained international recognition by a number of prominent conservation organisations such as WWF International.
A cultural experience
Step back in time and you will find plenty of culture to absorb yourself in such as painted monasteries and rural villages with traditions and practices that have remained unchanged for centuries. There is plenty for you to see and experience, not least we love attempting to track down Bram Stoker's infamous Dracula. Speculation suggests the myth of Dracula was based on a real person named Vlad The Impaler... so a tour taking you through the heart of Dracula country, visiting many of the sites relating to Vlad The Impaler gives you a fascinating and somewhat chilling insight into the myth of Dracula and its association with Romania. Like all our tours these specialist tailor made itineraries are really quite a unique experience.
