Fagaras is the biggest, highest and probably most sought mountain massif in Romania in the summer months. In winter, it becomes a challenge. The range is not called the Transylvanian Alps for nothing.
This hiking tour is one of superlatives and of personal endurance. It is about pure unspoiled joy and satisfaction and hardship. That’s because this tour is about going along almost the whole ridge of Fagaras with full summer camping gear. The ridge has 80 km in straight airplane line, passing by ridges, peaks and glacial lakes. As this is the biggest mountain range in Romania, we won’t go straight most of the time and that is the beauty of it.
Imagine standing atop the three highest peaks of Romania at Moldoveanu, 2,544 meters, Negoiu, 2,535 meters and Vistea, 2,527 meters and enjoying the perfect vistas. You will practically have, for most of the time, Transylvania at your feet, actually, well below your feet. We will pass chimneys, ridges, exposed trails and jagged peaks. Camp on the banks of some of the most beautiful glacial lakes of Carpathians at over 2,000 meters. See first-hand the old pastoralist ways at work with shepherds houses and flocks of sheep.
This tour is not just about mountains. It is also about you and your journey. The Fagaras ridge is always an achievement to remember.
