Our holiday walking grades

Moderate

Grade 4 Sightseeing

Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain. Half day walks will probably involve about 3 hours of walking, with full day walks having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m. Some days of this holiday will be dedicated solely to sightseeing (or include an element of sightseeing). To enhance your experience, a knowledgeable local guide will accompany your small group for part (or the majority) of the holiday.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Visit Bran castle. However tenuous the connection with Dracula, it's a must see.
  • Stroll around Brasov’s lively town square.
  • Discover the rural or mountainous countryside best explored on foot, always beautiful and seemingly untouched.
  • Visit and walk above the Turda Gorge, a place of towering limestone cliffs, native flora and fossils, and a spectacular sight.
  • Admire Ceausescu’s People Palace, the largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon.
  • Discover Sighisoara, although small it is beautifully preserved and ideally explored on foot.

The chickens peck by the side of the road and a horse and cart trundles by. The view down the main street at Velea Zaganului is unchanged in a very long time. Only the telegraph poles remind you of modernity. Changing yet changeless, Romania offers a fascinating excursion to sights and experiences long disappeared from Western Europe. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays.

We start in Cluj, the former Hungarian capital of Transylvania, a well preserved city easily discovered on foot. We spend time here and visit the Turda Gorge, a spectacular sight.

Next we stay at Sibiu, the former capital of German speaking Transylvania. It is a spectacularly fortified town, designed to repel Ottoman invaders, and well worth exploring. Outside the city we’ll visit and explore the ancient country ways with a chance to meet and understand something of the ways of the shepherds who have maintained flocks in the local hills as long as recorded history.

Then to Sighisoara. For some, this fortified old town will be the highlight of the trip. We stay near the town square so can enjoy the town at its best in the evenings. Although small it is beautifully preserved and ideally explored on foot.

At Brasov we are in the Carpathian mountains. This elegant cultured baroque city is a destination in its own right. It is also a great place from which to explore the mountains and ‘Dracula’ country. We’ll visit the castle at Bran, so closely associated with the legendary vampire Dracula. Although connections with the fictional vampire are tenuous at best, it is a fascinating building and should not be missed.

Finally we reach Bucharest, a capital city recovering much of its poise and charm. There’s a visit to Ceausescu’s People Palace, the largest building in the world after the Pentagon. As personal vanity projects go it is astonishing and not without charm.

Day 8

Brasov

Meals

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Accommodation

Today we visit two of the most important historic buildings in Romania. Touristy they may be but they are undoubtedly an essential part of any trip to Romania. First to Bran to see the self styled Dracula's Castle. Without the hype it is a fascinating insight into medieval history. The castle was built in the 1370's to guard a strategic trade route. Its links with Dracula are tenuous at best but it is still the best place to soak up one of the most popular legends in European culture. Our guide will separate fact from fiction for us. We also visit the far less visted Rasnov Fortress by way of contrast. We return to Brasov for dinner and overnight.

Day 9

Bucharest

Meals

Dinner will be in another city centre restaurant and we stay in a central hotel.

Day 10

Bucharest

Meals

Breakfast & Dinner

Accommodation

Today we visit the Peoples Palace, an extraordinary building, the second largest in the world after The Pentagon. It was conceived as a vanity project by Ceausescu in the 1980's. The development involved demolishing large parts of Bucharest's former historic centre. You have to go through airport style security to get in but the breath-taking scale of the place makes it all worthwhile. After the visit and lunch at a local restaurant we have some free time to explore the city further.

Day 11

Passports and Visas

General Passport Advice

It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport. Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents and your return to your home country.

Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements.

General travel and destination advice for UK nationals is available from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk/travel and at www.gov.uk/travelaware.

Brexit Passport Advice

You should have at least 6 months validity left on your passport from your date of arrival.

If you renewed a 10 year passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport’s expiry date. These extra months will not count, so you should ensure that your passport is not older than 9 years and 6 months from the date of issue at the time of travel.

You may wish to renew your passport sooner rather than later, in order to make sure you have it in time for your holiday or travel plans.

Please ensure to regularly check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for updates on passport requirements leading up to and after Brexit or contact us for more assistance. 

UK Government Brexit Information for Passports can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/passport-rules-for-travel-to-europe-after-Brexit.

Please ensure that as a minimum your travel insurance policy covers you for travel to your holiday destinations (country and geographical region) and for medical expenses, mountain rescue (including helicopter rescue) and emergency repatriation to your home country in the event of illness or injury. Your policy should also provide adequate cover for the activities, included and optional, you are likely to participate in during your holiday.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
