Piatra Craiului National Park Tours and Activities

star-5
58 Reviews

This vast national park is one of Romania’s most important protected land areas. Home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including the Garofita Pietrei Craiului—a purple flower found only in Piatra Craiului—the open spaces, majestic mountains and towering trees here beckon travelers seeking refuge from city streets and urban centers.

A diverse network of well-kept trails means outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of places to wander. And landmarks like the Zarnesti Gorges, Dambovicioara Cave and the virgin forests offer spectacular access to some of the country’s most beautiful natural wonders. An easy educational trail details the park’s most unique features, while the brown bear observatory and rock faces perfect for climbing offer opportunities for travelers going it with an expert guide.

Those in the know say the park’s northern and eastern valleys tend to get crowded on weekends. Those looking for a quiet retreat should stick to the areas between Podul Dambovitei and Static, near Lake Pecineagu, were fewer people gather on Saturday and Sunday.

One Day Breathtaking Hike in Piatra Craiului

One Day Breathtaking Hike in Piatra Craiului

Amazing hike through what we consider to be the most beautiful mountains of Romania - Piatra Craiului, also one of our National Parks. The highest point that we will reach is 1816 m in Piatra Mica peak, but the view towards it is breathtaking. In between we will take a break for lunch (not included in the price) at Curmatura Chalet, one of the most welcoming that we know. To make sure that you see as much as possible from Piatra Craiului, the route upwards is different from the one downwards. In some places, the hike tends to become difficult, so mountain equipment is mandatory (especially trekking shoes - preferably boots, rain jacket, additional clothing for cold weather). The tour can be customized according to the tourists' needs.
