Carpathian mountains holiday in Romania
Description of Carpathian mountains holiday in Romania
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Our partners behind this holiday promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travellers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
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.
PlanetThe tour is a small group one, with maximum number of 12 tourists. In this way we reduce at minimum the impact on the environment. We collect all the garbage on our trek. More than this we collect the garbage left by some tourists on the way (as much as we can carry in a such kind of walk, of course). We hardly use plastic for this kind of tours. We are working with small family guesthouses which promote eco tourism and they have in their rooms the instructions about how they can reduce the water consumption (eg. using towels) and they serve local food produce in the local communities (eg.milk, eggs, meat, cheese). We limit the use of plastic bottles by providing reusable bottles, as much as we can and we are not working with the single use plastic. We stay only on marking trails. For example, when following a trail, parties should walk single file down the middle of the trail.
PeopleIn our multi day trekking tours we use the local resources: we stop at a local handicraft or to a museum or at a local guesthouse for cheese tasting. Where we need we use local guides.
Our tailor made programs help clients to better identify those areas that can offer awesome nature and rural culture experiences.
Our tourists can participate at the current works in the villages (eg. cutting the grass, milking the cows or sheep). We make a stop, during summer time, at an authentic sheep farm up into the mountains for a shepherd's lunch called “bulz” (polenta with cheese). Here we show at the tourists how the cheese is produced in a traditional way. The tourists could taste a special yogurt called “jintita” (can not be found in the local markets or big markets).
We inform the clients that it is important to know and respect a few elementary rules before visiting the areas of the Nationals Parks or Natural Parks. In this areas we have locals from the mountain villages which are struggling to preserve their traditions and their way of life (not so much help from the Romanian state). We inform them to keep down the noise level so both humans and wildlife can enjoy the balance of nature, to admire the flowers and if they wish to pick them to use only their photo camera. During our tours we use to make a stop at a local guesthouse which has a small farm for a cheese tasting and/or an eco-lunch with local products. They can visit the farm and/or to participate to the daily activities, as milking the animals or cutting the grass. In this way they have a perspective about the conditions of living in this areas and they understand how important is to respect their lifestyle.
