Uncover the history-steeped region of Transylvania on this Romanian guided group holiday.

The name “Transylvania” may instantly conjure images of spooky castles, swarms of bats and bloodthirsty vampires, but the dark past that has inspired this picture is just one of the many reasons to visit this fascinating and beautiful region of central Romania.

On this 7-night small group tour, we’ll explore the real Transylvania, as we visit the historic towns of Sibiu, Sighisoara, Viscri & Brasov, hike through incredible natural rock formations, stop at Dracula’s Castle, and even come face to face with some rescued bears!

We’ll stay in colourful local hotels and spend one night getting to know a Romanian family in a traditional homestay, before ending our journey with a cycling tour in the cool and modern capital of Bucharest. Join us on this unforgettable adventure to discover how bewitching Transylvania can truly be.
