Guesthouse in the Romanian Carpathians
Nature-based tours and educational journeys
A vampire-bat Carpathian wildlife Bear watching
Nature-based tours and educational trips,
and what else CNTOURS offers to you:
  • Hiking and nature adventure trips (all year)
  • Wildlife viewing (bear watching)
    (on request)
    Since it is very unlikely to see bears during a hike, observation from a hide in the forest is an appropriate form of wildlife observation. We use a closed hide in the forest where we are accompanied by an authorized park-ranger for safety reasons.
    The area is restricted for children under 10 years! bear watching
  • Courses with the forest ranger
    (only for residents of the Guesthouse Villa Hermani)
  • Bird watching

  • Round trips:
    Together with members of the Romanian association of ecotourism (AER) several trips have been developed, which allow you to explore different areas of Romania. So you can for example hike in the Carpathian Mountains, and then enjoy a few days of birdwatching in the Danube Delta. Or you travel to the Maramures in the north-western Romania, for visiting one of the last forest railways in Europe: the Mocăniţa in Vaser Valley. Or you visit the splendidly painted monasteries in the northern Bukovina.
  • Travel to the history and culture of the Transylvanian Saxons:
    CNTOURS leads you to the authentic places in the region between Sibiu and Brasov, away from the much visited tourist routes. You will be amazed and thrilled by the achievements of this people and the various initiatives to preserve this unique culture. Especially in Sibiu, European Capital of Culture 2007, cultural events attract large interest. CNTOURS offers day trips to all special events.
  • Photography:
    Several times a year workshops with the internationally renowned photographer Mihai Moiceanu are offered, combined with photo safaris in different regions of the country.
