Chasing adventure in Romania

Snow and adrenaline in Romania

If you’re a fan of winter sports and wondering what Romania has to offer for skiing, snowboarding, splitboarding and winter fun & leisure – this is for you!

Outdoor Activities

The rocky peaks of Transylvania and Moldavia, snow-capped from mid-October in some years, call out for conquering, and well-marked trails lead to summits from all directions. With 28% of the country occupied by the Carpathian Mountains, Romania has a lot of mountain and winter resorts, with groomed ski slopes for skiers and snowboarders. But our country has a lot of potential for other winter sports such as snowshoeing trails or ski touring, including adventures such as backcountry or off-piste free-ridding on splitboard, ski or snowboard.

Trekking in the Carpathians

Dense primeval forests leap straight from the pages of a Brothers Grimm story, with bears, wolves, lynx and boar, rugged mountain plateaus, well-marked trails and a network of cabins en route to keep you warm. Trekking is the best way to absorb this vibrant landscape of mountain tops, forests and rolling pastureland. The peaks can be approached from both Transylvania and Moldavia.

The Retezat Mountains, with some 80 glacial lakes and peaks towering above 2000m, are a spectacular stretch of the southern Carpathians.


Snowmobile adventure in the Carphatians

For this winter season we partner with Carpathian Outdoor Tours to offer you numerous and varied winter adventures and in particular snowmobile adventures in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania.

Our snowmobile adventure tours offer an excellent opportunity to get to know and experience the breathtaking winter landscape of the Carpathian Mountains of Romania.

Plan an adventure tour with your snowmobile through the snowy mountain landscape for your next winter vacation, with incredible views of the enchanting winter mountains in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. You will return home with enthusiasm.

The season usually starts at the end of December and usually runs until the end of March. The best conditions are found in January and February.

Sibiu Airport (SBZ) Bohemian and historic, the city of Sibiu is the perfect base if you’re planning a trip to Romania’s fabled Transylvania region. Sibiu prides itself on being one of Romania’s most cultured cities, and you’ll find plenty of entertainment: from theatre performances and annual festivals to buskers strumming their guitars in the backstreets.

Bus lines 11, 112, 116, 117 and 118 connect the airport to the city. Tickets should cost around 4.50 Romanian lei (about 1 Euro). There’s also a taxi rank outside the airport: official cars display their price per km and license in the window.


Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP) also known as Otopeni Airport, after the town where the airport is located is the larger of the two airports of Bucharest, accommodating the activity of several major airline companies. In order to get from Henri Coandă International Airport to the city (airport is located some 16 kilometers north from the center of Bucharest), tourists can get the train, the bus or a taxi.

The two bus lines is suggestively called Express 783 and Expres 780. Taking a taxi is always a solution at hand for passengers, mostly at night when no other means of transport are available.
