Explore the pristine Piatra Craiului National Park on this private day hiking tour from Brașov. With an expert guide, head to Romania’s Carpathian Mountains and follow one of two 5- to 7-hour routes, according to the weather and your group’s preferences. Depending on your route, cross the narrow Zarnesti Gorge, walk through forests and meadows, learn about local industries such as mountain shepherding and cheese-making, and visit mountain villages or a mountain hut for a rustic lunch. Numbers are limited to eight people to ensure a personalized experience. Entrance fees not included.
The name of the mountain came from one of the citadels built by the Hungarian Kingdom, as a custom, control and protection point, at the southern border of Transylvania, at the bottom of the mountains, at the end of the XIV century. The name of the citadel in the German language was Königstein.
The locals called the mountain The Stone (Piatra).
This hiking trip is a great opportunity to explore Piatra Craiului National Park in the Carpathian Mountains, an area pretty much untouched by the 21st century. Trek past gorges, forests and pastures where mountain shepherds still work, and see a side of Romania that's hardly changed in generations.
