The Transylvanian Explorer tour gives an excellent insight into the way of life in rural Romania, meeting and staying with the local people and eating local dishes. The walking is quite demanding, but results in fantastic views and a great experience of areas off the beaten track. This is a tour that provides a real appreciation of an unspoilt part of Europe and also provides self exploration through the challenges that walking in the rugged mountains presents. The cultural side of the tour, with the painted churches and seeing first hand the way of rural life, is fascinating.
