Travel Romania

A natural landscape is a Romanian landscape that is nearly unaffected by tourists activity. The nature in Transylvania is intact when all living and traveling visitors are free to move and change. The fundamental elements distinguish a holiday in nature from the live of bears in wilderness. A bear reserve includes areas within which rural processes operate without any human interference, but a forest must contain life. As implied, a natural valley may contain either the living or recreation or both. In his extensive travels in the southern Carpathians, Vlad Tepes became the first to conceptualize the natural landscape. Some holiday-makers have described the transition of a pristine landscape state to the well known attractions which include Bran Castle, the primeval landscape, the ancient traditions, the undisturbed wilderness and the guided tours and trips. The natural holiday is a place in Romania under the current control of Transylvanian farmers and free of the expectation of people for an extended period of recreational time.

Carpathian Nature Tours:
Carpathian Nature Tours was founded in 1999 in cooperation with the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project (clcp). Within the frame of this "wolf-project" we developed a sustainable tourism program with the principle of social and environmental responsible tourism for the national park Piatra Craiului area. In the year 2000 Carpathian Nature Tours was a founder member of the first association for eco-tourism in Zarnesti and in 2003 a founder member of the first national association for eco-tourism in Romania AER.
Our main interest was – and still is – the conservation of nature and the protection of the european large carnivores bear, wolf and lynx. We therefore focus on hiking and nature experience holidays with wildlife watching. We regard a close contact between the traveler and the tour operator as essential, therefore we guide only small groups (max 15 persons). A special highlight for the carpathian mountains is watching european brown bears from a cabin in the forest. With some luck you can also see other wildlife like wild boar, birds of prey, owls or even wolves. We also work with the Romanian Institute for Wildlife Research on some of their projects like the beaver reintroduction program or the reintroduction of marmots in the Fagaras mountains.
The location:
The boardinghouse Villa Hermani is located at an altitude of 1020 m above sealevel (GPS position: N45°31’26,6”, E25°17’51,1”) in the mountain village of Magura, right in the middle of Piatra Craiului national park. Until 50 years ago the village could only be reached by foot or with horse and cart. This is why local traditions are still kept and are still lived by the farmers. Livestock breeding is the basis of the local income, in summer the animals graze in the alpine meadows cared for by shepherds and dogs as protection against wolves and bears. The hay meadows in the village are still scythed and there are more horse-drawn carts than cars on the road.
The guesthouse Villa Hermani:
The house was opened in 2004 and certified by the eco-tourism association AER in 2006. From the balconies or the garden you can enjoy the scenery and the mountains. Almost non-existing car traffic, the clean air, and the freedom of nature make the house a paradise for families with children. We speak english, german and romanian.
