Out-of-the Box Getaway Ideas Not Far From Bucharest

Bucharest, like any capital, can be a really great place for any activity you’d like to do, but sometimes we all feel like the concrete, noise and crowds become too much. And we need to take a deep breath, pack our bags and have a break. This is where we step in because we haven’t missed a day in being passionate about bringing to the world the Romanian cultural heritage, history, and its fantastic outdoors. So here are some suggestions for the next time you feel like escaping the city:

  1. Short hiking trip in Piatra Craiului or Bucegi moutanins

This is a great idea for those who enjoy a bit of outdoor adventure, but nothing too technical or strenuous. During a 3-days trip you will explore the Piatra Craiului or Bucegi massif, some of the most popular mountains in Romania. You spend the night in a family-run guesthouse, located at the foot of the mountains. You will enjoy a tasty dinner, prepared by your hosts, hike through mysterious woodland, admire the views of the ridge of Piatra Craiului (“Rock of the King”) and have a lunch break at a typical mountain hut. Trust us when we say you’ll love this experience!

  1. Bike & wine

This experience is perfect for the beginning of autumn, but you can do it in the summer as well. We invite you to a cycling trip in the footsteps of Bacchus, in a fairy tale location – the beautiful & endless grape vines from Dealu Mare region – a bucolic tour, part of the “Wine Road”. You’ll also get to visit the Bellu Museum – a beautiful old manor that belongs to an important family.  Let yourself be carried by all these flavours, in the place where history & gastronomy blend perfectly.

  1. Through the scattered villages on snowshoes

A unique & perfect winter activity! We explore the scattered villages of Poiana Mărului and spend the evening at the guest house of the fortified Lutheran church in the Saxon village of Vulcan. A wonderful active adventure that will make you discover an authentic winter story.

We bet you’re already day-dreaming about all these experiences out in the wild! And there are so many other possibilities so that you can have a one-of-a-kind short break, not far from Bucharest, but far from the mainstream options.

So, are you ready to explore?
