Carpathian Culture and Wildlife


Wildlife and nature

One of the last remaining true wilderness areas in Europe can be found in the majestic Piatra Craiului Mountains of central Romania. 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. The number of brown bear here represents nearly half of the total European population, and wolves about 30%. Due to the old communist regime, the dense forests of the Carpathian Mountains have remained largely untouched by the outside world and many rare species of birds and wildlife inhabit this amazing region. Our days are spent on walks through spectacular canyons, virgin forests and Saxon villages. We stay in a guesthouse owned by a local family, providing a good standard of accommodation and delicious food. We visit the Beaver Reintroduction Programme and Europe's biggest rescue station for brown bears. There is also an opportunity to visit Bran Castle ('Dracula's Castle') and the mediaeval town of Brasov.
