“Great hike!”
Review of Transylvanian Wolf

Transylvanian Wolf
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We booked one day with Dan, to track wildlife and hike on the mountains nearby Zarnesti. The hike was wonderful, the area is very beautiful. Dan has a great deal of knowledge about Romania and the area of Piatra Craiului. As per the wildlife, all what we saw were two deers, even though he showed us several tracks during the hike. The first part of the hike was very pleasant, Dan was very friendly and showed us a great deal of plants, tracks, and birds. However, on the way back we felt as if he was in a rush and trying to get rid of us. After the trip, we met another person who had gone on a trip with him and described the same "getting rid of us" feeling. We didn't meet or read about anyone who was able to see bears, wolves or lynx during these hikes with Dan.

We spent a day with Dan (booked through untravelled paths) and was the best of the holiday. Dan was full of great information, not just about Romanian wolf and lynxs! He brought tea his wife had made and it too was amazing. We tried to do another trip with him but was unable to fit it in, biggest regret of the holiday! Will definitely be going back to Romania...just to do another trip with him.

We spent two days walking in the mountains  near Zarnesti, the Piatra Craiului with our host and guide, Dan Marin. Dan is a great guide, knowledgable and friendly. He has an endless wealth of knowledge about the wildlife, history and culture of the region and can spot tracks and creatures with astounding skill. We found much evidence of bears and wolves, though the animals themselves were elusive. We did get to see many birds, butterflies and learnt a huge amount about the plants we walked past. The accommodation at Dan's guest house is lovely. The room is spacious and comfortable with interesting furniture and features. His wife, Luminita, provided us with incredible, extremely tasty and beautifully presented food, including the most wonderful blueberry brandy! The food is all sourced locally and is traditional. We would highly recommend the experience.
