Poiana Tămaș wilderness camp

Poiana Tămaș wilderness camp, situated in a picturesque meadow, at an elevation of 1460 m, offers an unforgettable experience near the Făgăraș Mountains in Romania.

Our camp combines the charm of a lovingly restored shepherd’s hut with the comfort of spacious glamping-style tents, creating an inviting space for up to 50 guests.

Welcome to Poiana Tămaș wilderness camp

The locals say that the sheepfold in the Tămaș Meadow has always been there. Now it’s the perfect place to have an unforgettable mountain experience, somewhere far away from noisy and hectic places. Panoramic views of Păpușa, Piatra Craiului and the Făgăraș mountains will provide a breathtaking backdrop to your stay. As you step onto our covered pavilion, indulge in outdoor dining, where the fresh mountain air enhances the flavours of locally sourced and thoughtfully prepared dishes.

The old sheepfold has been refurbished with respect and authentic materials that were used for the original construction. The camp has 17 double tents and three larger tents equipped with mattresses or beds.

There are eco-friendly compost toilets and hot water bucket showers. The tented area is encircled by a bear-proof electric fence, however the true reason is that this is for days when the camp is abandoned, since bears are curious animals and might check out what is behind the tent walls.

All meals are prepared by a chef with local products to offer guests traditional and simple food with outstanding taste.

Tămaș Meadow is the right choice for those who love to experience pristine nature with a certain amount of comfort. The wilderness camp is designed for smaller or larger groups and our specialised staff can organize personalised wildlife monitoring and exploration activities.
