Itinerary
  • Volcanic Lake Tourexpand_more
    • After 1.5 - 2 h driving from Brasov, you would reach the magnificent area of Saint Ana’s Lake situated at 950 m altitudes in the Ciomat Mountains. Its splendour and beauty would take the breath of every visitor. The lake formed in the crater of a volcano erupted about 32000 years ago. It became one of the most favourite destinations in Transylvania for those who desire to escape into nature. Not only the beauty of the lake and its surroundings but the legends mesmerise those interested. In a second crater nature, opposite the lake took its course and formed a peat bog, a protected area with unique carnivorous plants ‘’Drosera rotundifolia’’, miniature conifers, and many others. (visits only during summer). 
    • After the visit to the lake and bog, the tour guide will drive to Balvanyos and after the vehicle was parked an easy to medium up-hill walk (approx 30 min) would be required to the ‘’Stinky Caves’’ and to the ‘’Bird Cemetery’’. Thanks to the post volcanic activity at these locations, sulphurous gas emanations are present which would be presented and explained by the guide with fun tricks and stories. 
    • Drive back to Brasov and enjoy some of the different mineral water springs in Tusnad Bai resort, which naturally come out of the ground and are used by locals and visitors for their medical benefits.
