What do I need to bring with me

  • The basic equipment needed for a mountain trip during summer time:
  • 40-60 litre backpack, chosen according to the tour type.
  • Mountain boots covering your ankles; 2 additional pairs of socks.
  • Rain wear, jacket and pants. I recommend you to have the jacket and pants, so you will be protected from rain and windy weather. A rain poncho will do too, but only if there are no windy conditions outside.
  • Cap, gloves, sunglasses and sunscreen. I strongly advise you to carry a cap and gloves with you – even during the summer season – because it could be quite cold at altitudes over 1700 m.
  • Warm clothes. One or two Polartec/Fleece sweaters.
  • We start the tour in Brasov at 9:00 and we drive about 1 hour to Fagaras town where we visit Fagaras Citadel. Situated right in the heart of central Romania, the Fagaras fortress in the town of the same name represents one of Eastern Europe’s largest and best-preserved feudal Castle complexes. Unquestionably the most-visited site in the medieval old town of the city, the castle was once the kingpin of regional power. Throughout the 17th century, the citadel was expanded continuously, reflecting the growing wealth of a centre that exercised control over much of Transylvania and central Romania.
  • Immerse yourself in the legends of Transylvania with a visit to Bran Castle and Râșnov.
  • Departing from Fagaras, we drive about 1 hour with a stop at Bran Castle, also known as ‘Dracula’s Castle’ – a hilltop estate that conjures up visions of howling wolves and bats fluttering in the moonlight. Wander the castle’s Gothic chambers and learn about its ties to Bram Stoker’s undead antihero. Enter if you dare, after paying the site fee (own expense), and wander through the castle’s many well-preserved rooms and chambers with your guide. Gothic furnishings and details help set the scene for ghastly legends of all that happened here, including the imprisonment of Vlad the Impaler. This 15th-century prince was notorious for his bloodthirsty campaigns against invading Turks and is said to have inspired Stoker’s malevolent Count Dracula.
  • A short drive brings you to Râșnov to explore its imposing, 13th-century fortress, a walled stone compound designed to ward off attacks by the fierce Tartars and used as a refuge for local villagers during medieval warfare.
