We're going on a bear hunt: You can't go over it, you can't go under it, you've got to go... straight towards today's deal!
We’re offering you a three-night Bucharest and Brasov bear tracking tour including transfers and 3-4* accommodation for just £199pp, or upgrade for a four-night Bucharest and Braşov bear tracking tour including castle entry for £319pp.
Ever dreamt of seeing a real teddy bears' picnic? On this once-in-a-lifetime trip, you’ll visit these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat in the heart of Romania’s bear country: the Piatra Craiului National Park. Not only is Romania the bear capital of Europe and home to around 4,500 bears, it’s an enigmatic landscape of pristine glacial lakes, snow-capped mountains and medieval castles steeped in legend.
Your tour begins in cultural capital Bucharest, before you venture through the dramatic Transylvanian Alps to reach medieval town Braşov. From your hilltop hotel, you will enter a bear hide under the guidance of a professional tracker. Unrivalled Paths’ experienced trackers and guides are accustomed to seeking out the grizzly creatures - they’ll take you to renowned bear hot-spots and will also point out other assorted wildlife, from the grey wolf to birds of prey. During your tour, you’ll be comfortably accommodated in top-class boutique hotels with all in-country transport included. If you choose to upgrade to stay for four nights, you'll also visit Peles Castle and the famous Dracula's Castle! Take a walk on the wild side...
Travel to Braşov and spend the day exploring the town and surrounding area to your heart's content. You'll visit the bear hide in the evening, before your overnight stay at Casa Cristina, winner of a Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice® 2015.
Spend the morning enjoying the relaxed atmosphere in Braşov, tucking in to breakfast before spending the day exploring the town.
You'll travel back through the Transylvanian countryside to Bucharest, before you're transferred to the airport.
Transfer to Sinaia, where you'll spend your morning exploring the fascinating history of Peles Castle, a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains. In the evening, you'll be able to visit the bear hide. You'll then travel to Braşov, where you'll stay overnight at Casa Wagner, both winners of a Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice® 2015.
Spend your morning at Transylvania's stunning Libearty Bear Sanctuary, where over 70 bears enjoy a peaceful life surrounded by 70 hectares of oak and hazel forest. The bears roam free, able to climb trees, swim in the pools and forage on the vegetation, and you'll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the animals in their natural habitat. You'll spend your evening in the Carpathian Mountains, tracking wild bears with your experienced guide.
Spend the morning enjoying the relaxed atmosphere in Braşov, tucking in to breakfast before you visit the mysterious Bran Castle (better known as Dracula's Castle). The spectacular building was a royal residence until its capture by the communist regime in the 1940s. After you've explored the museum and grounds, you'll travel back through the Transylvanian countryside to Bucharest, staying a final night at the 4* Z Hotel.
