Great trip through the wild mountains, we learned a lot about animals and Romanian nature, the kids were thrilled. Saw some small animals and plenty of tracks, our wildlife guide was an expert!

If you are staying around Brașov, Bran or Rucăr, and you don’t have more than a day to spend, Richita Wildlife Hide offers a great way to experience the wildlife and nature of the area.

Built by Foundation Conservation Carpathia, the hide is part of the largest private conservation project in Europe and is a green business example that has a positive impact on the environment.




Dâmbovița Valley is a lovely place to discover and your wildlife guide will show you CARPATHIA’s restoration sites and tree nurseries. Plus, you will have the opportunity to identify wildlife tracks, walk your children on a thematic trail and enjoy the views.



Your guide or ranger will pick you up from the guesthouse and you will start with an off-road adventure, up the Dâmbovița Valley.

Once the sun starts setting, look for bears, wild boar, foxes, red deer or roe deer from the comfort of the hide.

Depending on the tour you have chosen, the wilderness experience can be extended with an optional 3-5 h hike and breathtaking views over the Făgăraș and Iezer-Păpușa Mountains.

Richita hide has a capacity of 30 seats.
