Wildlife Hides

Experience one or several of our wildlife observation hides deep in the wilderness of the Făgăraș Mountains. We have carefully chosen the perfect locations to build our Bunea and Comisu hides, after years of studying wild animal tracks and their behaviour throughout that area of the Făgăraș Mountains.

Strategically placed in natural clearings, but hidden enough to not impact wildlife movements, our hides offer wildlife enthusiasts the possibility of seeing bears, as well as other wild animals, from inside the safety of these cabins. We offer a complete package to both of these fantastic locations. The various hides have different capacities, from small two-person hides to more spacious cabins with six or eight beds.

All our trips include overnight stay, expert guide, transfer from Rucăr village, and delicious local and organic meals and drinks. Our hides are an ideal destination for couples or small groups, who want to experience true wilderness and amazing wildlife.

Please note that children staying at the hides must be at least eight years old.

Nucșoara

The Forest of Immortal Stories

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 like 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.
