Ice Hotel Romania

The Ice Hotel Romania

Nestled in the Carpathian Mountains, the Transylvania Ice hotel is a wonder of architecture built entirely from the ice blocks of the Balea  glacier lake which freezes every winter in December. The entire trip to the top of the mountain at 2032 meters is an adventure in itself as you’ll be amazed by the scenery and the thrills of the longest cable car ride in Romania. The mountain awaits you with snow related activities such as snowmobiling tunnel trekking and tubing. When the moon rises over the rugged peaks you will have your supper in the Ice restaurant and prepare yourselves for for the night in the icy rooms. All this are perfect ingredients for a memorable trip with Explore Transylvania.

The Brown Bears of Transylvania

Almost mystical for the locals, these mighty animals are the top of the fauna chain in the Carpathian mountain.With their numbers increasing combined with the loss  of bear habitat it has become a challenge for both humans and bears to live in the same areas.Embark on a journey to discover the subtleties of  this situation and come face to face with the great brown bear.

Harghita

Cotton candy trees in a dreamy landscape. Stepping into this magical land it will feel as if you’ve entered Snow Queen’s fairytale; snow claims these parts from early December until late March. You won’t be alone on this Narnia-like adventure, however. Ready and eager to assist are the Huskies who are looking forward to take you across the pearly plains and snow dusty hills. Your task? To give into the spell and take in the white wonderland. It’s an experience that will surely make the topic of water cooler conversations for many months.

Explore the Transylvanian Christmas Markets

Christmas in Transylvania is one of the most loved and expected events of the year. Almost every Saxon town has an animated old town square with a big Christmas Tree in the middle, lots of mulled wine and maybe a skate ring as well.

Danube Delta

The Danube Delta, Birdwatching Paradise or twitchers paradise. One of Europe’s last wildernesses, it surely doesn’t need an introduction. A rich wildlife spot (surpassed only by the Great Barrier Reef and Galapagos Islands), some 5,500 species of flora and fauna call the Danube Delta home. It so happens that this almost forgotten place, buzzing and roaring with wildlife, may just be a little piece of paradise. Both quiet and trilling with birdsong at the same time, it is but a gate to self-reflection and connection with nature. So go ahead and swap the traffic jams with a serene boat ride, attend an early morning meeting with the pelicans and ditch the fast, to-go lunch for a hearty fisherman’s meal. We invite you to relax.

Bran

  There are many stories to tell about Dracula. Many more about Vlad the Impaler. Explore Transylvania will make sure you learn all of them. The forested valleys at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains hide a secret village: Bran. Tiny, but mighty, Bran used to be the border point between the historical regions of Wallachia and Transylvania long ago; today, it is shrouded in mystery and folk tales with vampires and witches. Playing into the fantasy, Bran Castle itself watches over from its lone cliff. If you do dare to come close, however, you will discover a whole different story. The residence of the Royal Family in the ‘20s, Bran is not all stone and desolation. The rich furniture, elegance, and warmth transformed this castle into a home. (more…)
