Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Self Guided Holidays and Guided Walking Adventures in Romania with UTracks

A walk through the Romanian countryside is stunning. Enjoy a walking holiday in Romania and be rewarded with vistas boasting superb mountain views, beautiful rolling hills and numerous rivers and lakes.

A trek through the Carpathian Mountains (also known as the Transylvanian Alps) is a must. The Carpathians traverse the centre of Romania and are bordered by foothills on one side and the great plains of the outer rim on the other. The Carpathian Mountains covers around a third of Romania.

Romania is blessed to have over a quarter of it's countryside covered by forests and Romania's fauna is one of the richest in all of Europe, including bears, deer, lynx, chamois and wolves. The legendary Danube River ends its eight-country journey at the Black Sea, after forming one of the largest and most biodiverse wetlands in the world, the Danube Delta.

Of course Romania is also famous for Dracula. A walking tour to Bran Castle, home to the origin of the Dracula character, will fill you with vivid stories as well the many memorable views of the Bucegi mountains that we'll experience along the way. Romania is a culturally rich country so any walk will allow you to encounter old world hospitality as you hike through traditional Romanian villages on one of our walking holidays.

UTracks offers both self guided and guided walking holidays to Romania.
