Transylvania Winter Wilderness Trek

Where is it? This chilly trek takes us to Romania in its peak winter season. Specifically visiting a remote region of the Carpathians for an ultra element of adventure that takes you away from civilisation and into the snowy wilderness.

What makes this trek adventure stand out? A bite-sized escape to totally new landscapes makes for a spectacular trek with a difference. Snow-shoeing across Transylvania, through thick forests, hung with snow and nothing but the sounds of the wind whistling and your snow-shoe hitting the ground is pretty invigorating. The real treat is the chance to stay in the Hotel of Ice, built anew every year due to the contrasting weather conditions, it's an unforgettable experience sleeping on a bed of ice and fur. Brrr!

Should I do it? If you don't mind the cold and are looking for an experience like you've never had before, this may be the challenge for you. Snow-shoeing offers a funky alternative to keen trekkers and curious adventurers, and while you don't cross as many miles as you would on solid ground - you're sure to be exhausted after a demanding slog of snow-shoeing across Romania's thick snowy-landscapes.
