Hiking day-trips from Brasov in late September?


We are planning to spend 2-3 days in Brasov in late September and would like to do some light hiking, in particular to see the Rucar-Bran passage (or other places you may recommend!). Could anyone please let me know how to arrange this - are there good local tour companies that organise day hikes, or are the routes well signposted so we can go on our own? Any advice regarding weather and clothing for this time of the year would also be welcome!

Thanks a lot in advance!

Simplest option is to take a train to the resorts south of Brasov (Busteni, Sinaia) and just hike into the Bucegi mountains; trails are reasonably well marked and views are very nice.

Weather will still be relatively warm (probably above 15°C) but there's a chance of rain, so bring some clothing for that.

Besides the Bucegi mountains you can also hike Piatra Craiului mountains, which are of a higher degree of difficulty. To get there, just take a train/bus to Zarnesti and from the railway station you can take a taxi or walk to the main starting points for hiking routes (10-12km).

Near the city, you can hike to Postavaru and Tampa.
