 High Tatra | Bucegi to Fagaras  | Bulgaria

Fresh snow in Tatra
Traverse of High Tatra & Prague details
The High Tatra, the highest and most majestic part of the Carpathians, are a natural barrier dividing Slovakia to the south and Poland. The character of many of the small villages surrounding the area has changed little over the years and the colourful local traditions have been well-preserved. Our treks in the High Tatra are combined with sightseeing visits to the historic cities of Cracow and Prague. 

This is a very high quality, vehicle supported trek. We fly (BA) into Warsaw in Poland and leave via Prague. Optional opportunity to climb Gerlach - the highest summit in the Tatra 2654m

Peles Castle
 Bucegi to Fagaras details 
Travelling through the Romanian Carpathians is a journey in history. 
This vehicle supported trek provides a wonderfully varied trip which starts with a visit to the magnificent Peles Castle. Airy ridges, pine and beech forests, remote mountain villages whose life style takes you back 100 years are combined with a high quality and caring local service. For some the highlight of the trip is spending a night with a family in a Romanian mountain village for others it is the traverse of the main Fagaras Ridge  - this is one of Europe's longest high altitude walks and it takes in Moldoveanu, 2544m, or 8480ft., the highest summit in Romania. Walking is generally on good paths but fitness is required for some longer days and there are some very short sections of easy scrambling.
