The route provided a wonderful variety of scenery, and each town and hotel has its own unique character. The support was excellent. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We advise all of our clients to stay to the marked paths. This is to maintain the environment as they pass so that it remains pristine for walkers using the pathways in the future. It is also important in order to keep some distance from the local wildlife which can include bears and wolves in the woods. We also advise that they take all of their rubbish with them until the end of the day and recycle or dispose of it as is appropriate.

The holiday is particularly good for wildlife lovers. The Carpathians offer a wide selection of birds and mammals in it’s rural location. Eco-tourism helps maintain this area so that it remains this way for future visitors.

As much as is possible on this trek we have tried to ensure that the walking is done from hotel to hotel, meaning that there is no need to be transported from or to a hotel each day and reduces the need for transportation journeys and their effect on the environment. When the luggage needs to be transferred we use the hotels or local companies to ensure that the driving required is kept to a minimum.

People

Most of the hotels we use in Romania are small and family run enabling these establishments to continue into the future. They are the establishments which are most in need of the tourism income and their ability to continue their success is important to the Transylvanian area of Romania. We also arrange for our clients to eat either at the hotels or at small local restaurants, again keeping the income in the small towns and villages where they stay overnight. We also use either the hotel, local companies or local taxi companies for the luggage and people transfers necessary for this trek. This also keeps the environmental impact of the trek to a minimum.

While on this trek our clients will come into contact with and be able to observe the local communities of the Transylvanian area. This will give them the opportunity to experience the rural Transylvanian life in action as they pass through.
