The Forest of Immortal Stories – Nucșoara

Discover the Forest of Immortal Stories, a visionary project born from the deep-seated desire to safeguard Nucșoara’s ancient and majestic beech trees, and featured by international media such as the New York Times. While our own lifespans are fleeting, these venerable trees endure, almost immortal in their resilience. They stand as custodians of time, capable of recounting tales long after we’re gone. These arboreal giants bear witness to centuries of history and embody invaluable heritage.

Moreover, their advanced age renders them crucial agents of carbon sequestration, sources of pure air, and repositories of future memories and experiences. Another option, guided by the local mountain rescue team, is to descend with us for a few hours into Elm’s Valley, an almost inaccessible gorge with 11 consecutive waterfalls, where even some abseiling is required.

Nucșoara, gateway to some of the wildest places of the Făgăraș Mountains and departure point to ascend Moldoveanu Peak, Romania’s highest peak, is well-known for its rich history of traditional crafts such as weaving, sewing, embroidery, egg-painting, carving, and woodworking.

Come with us to visit some of these craftsmen, whose skills have been passed down through the generations and continue to still be practiced by the locals today. We have developed different hiking trails around this area and we collaborate with select guesthouses in this part. Nucșoara is a great get-away for individuals, couples, families or groups of friends who want to experience the amazing nature and local traditions in this typical Carpathian mountain village.

Dâmbovița Valley Circuit Hike

This is a five-day guided circuit hike in some of the most beautiful and unspoiled parts around the Făgăraș Mountains. It starts from Plaiul Foii, from where you will hike about four hours to Poiana Tămaș Wilderness Camp and spend the night there. The camp is situated in a picturesque meadow, at an elevation of 1460 m. Panoramic views of Iezer-Păpușa, Piatra Craiului and the Făgăraș Mountains will provide a breathtaking backdrop to your stay.

This location combines the charm of a lovingly restored shepherd’s hut with the comfort of spacious glamping-style tents. The following day you will hike about eight hours to our Comisu wildlife observation hides, where you will spend the second night. These wooden hides with panoramic windows are situated in a high meadow above the tree line at an altitude of 1600 m. The sunset views of the surrounding mountains that you get from these hides are hard to beat and you will have a good chance of spotting wildlife from the comfort and safety of one of the hides. On the third day, you will hike to our Valea Vladului Chalet.

This cosy mountain chalet is situated in a beautiful valley, at an elevation of 1248 m. Depending on the chosen route, the hike will take between four and seven hours. After spending the night there, you will hike along the Dâmbovița Valley and Pecineagu Lake to our Bunea Wilderness Cabin.

Here you will spend the final night of this guided tour. Surrounded by forests, far away from civilisation and overlooking Pecineagu Lake, Bunea Wilderness Cabin is located on the southernmost ridge of the Făgăraș Mountains. Like our Comisu wildlife observation hides, Bunea offers a high chance of spotting wildlife such as bears, lynx, wolves, red deer, roe deer or the newly reintroduced European bison from the safety and comfort of the cabin. This all-inclusive experience includes off-road transportation, full board accommodation, a licensed mountain guide, and organic food and beverages to ensure an unforgettable hiking and wildlife adventure.
