All about the trip
Fagaras is the biggest, highest and probably most sought mountain massif in Romania in the summer months, while in winter it becomes a challenge. The range is called the Transylvanian Alps for a good reason. At its middle point, on a South to North perpendicular axe, the “most beautiful road in the world”, Transfagarasn, crosses the mountain. This tour takes you on this road up to one of the hidden gems of Fagaras mountains – the canyon called Valea lui Stan (Stan’s Valley). One just can´t get enough of the beauty of this narrow canyon with huge walls and lots of waterfalls. Its climb is secured with metal cables and ladders which makes it all the more interesting. Additionally, this tour will take us through: “the most beautiful road in the world”, Transfagarasan, as it was called a couple years ago by the Top Gear TV series; the most spectacular and highest dam in Romania, built on the river Arges. Curtea de Arges, a beautiful mountain small city which used to be a capital city for the early medieval kingdom predecessor to modern Romania. We will visit the beautiful Orthodox monastery where the German kings of Romania are buried.
