Buckhurst Hill
Omu mountain hut was a unique experience. Very basic - about 30 of us in a single room for the night. I particularly enjoyed our two nights at the guesthouse in Moeicu. Comfortable, friendly and good food. The day on the Piatra Craiului ridge was very challenging. A tough climb to the ridge itself, unable to use my walking poles because we were repeatedly scrambling over rocks. Not much easier when we reached the ridge because it is narrow, undulating and we had to hold onto a chain on two tricky sections. Our guide Horea looked after us well on this difficult day giving detailed instructions to those who were struggling. Views from the ridge were excellent. The following day the descent through the Zarnesti Gorge was impressive. This holiday was more challenging than other Explore walking trips but very satisfying.

The Guesthouse at moeicu. Excellent. Great sense of humour, and knowledge of the history of the region. Handled a big group with flexibility and safety.

I've been on many treks over the years but this ranks as one of the best. Great walks, showing the diversity of the countryside. Each day was different and had many highlights. Visits to Peles and Bran castles and Bucharest were fantastic and well led. The tour leaders were excellent.Very knowledgeable, friendly and responsive to the needs of the group.

The trek was great and gave us the opportunity to visit a beautiful country with stunning overnight locations and friendly and welcoming people. Difficult to pick a highlight as the whole holiday was outstanding, but the welcome we received from Steffi & Theo at their guesthouse in Moeicu made us feel as if we had found a home from home in Romania.Experienced,knowledgeable,sociable with a great sense of humour & provided a real insight into Romania past and present.

Day 3, Trekking down at sunrise from the Omu Hut and crossing paths with a herd of chamois. Beautiful scenery and a lovely hot shower and cold beer when we arrived at the guest house at the end of the day. Both were well deserved! Excellent, very knowledgeable and with his past as a mountain rescue guide we felt in very safe hands indeed.

First visit to an Eastern European country and we had the desire to hike. We were so glad we booked on the tour, as we got to experience and see new things each day from Castles, Landscapes and Wildlife. It was incredible how quickly the trip went the amount we could squeeze into a week. The Tours guide was excellent having grown up in the area, knowing all the highlights and the best to time of day to see them.

You need to be prepared for ascents, some steepish descents.poles very useful.
Beautiful scenery, a bit like Austria in places,far -reaching views from the ridge.
I enjoyed the soups- a Romanian speciality.
I also enjoyed learning more about the history and culture of the country.
The first hut quite basic, but fun! The other hut was more like a swiss chalet with lovely food.
I recommend this holiday.

Highlights were the beautiful scenery, friendly locals, lovely group and excellent tour leader. My main tip is "read the tour notes regarding what kit you need, they are not making it up..!".
