Nature in Romania: A Wonderland of Landscapes

Nature in Romania is a great attraction because of its variety of landscapes in one single destination. Whether you like to hike, enjoy an easy walk in nature, or observe wildlife, this is the right place for you.

The Carpathians, the must-see nature in Romania

Romania is one of the most bio-geographically diverse countries of the Old Continent. It stil has large unfragmented forests which are home for almost 45% of the big carnivores population (brown bears, lynx, wolves) in Europe.

The vast habitats of the Carpathians helped these iconic species to survive in great numbers in Romania, but their future is still under threat because of deforestation, poaching, and chaotic development.

The Carpathian Mountains, their main territory, occupy over 900 km and are the core of nature in Romania. Their wildernss is their distincte feature and main attraction point for nature enthusiasts. You'll find almost endless hiking options and wildlife observation opportunities.

For multi-day intense tours, head to Fagaras, Retezat and Parang Mountains. Choose Piatra Craiului, Bucegi, or Ciucas if you're based in Bucharest or Brasov. For idyllic rural landscapes, head to Trascaului and Cernei Mountains. Don't miss a day or two in the Eastern Carpathians if you're staying in Iasi, Cluj-Napoca, or Piatra Neamt.

If hiking is not your thing, and you prefer the quiet wait of a birdwatching tour, then the Danube Delta is the place for you.

The wetlands and the birds' paradise

The Danube Delta s the youngest land in Europe and the perfect place to observe rare bird species. Its labyrinth of reed, canals, and small islands create the best conditions for a thriving biodiversity, the third-highest in the world after the Galapagos and the Great Barrier of Reefs.

If the Delta is too far away, you can relax in Comana Nature Park, outside Bucharest, or in the urban Delta Vacaresti, this time in the capital. Plus, across the country, especially in the mountains, you will find beautiful lakes and waterfalls well-worth the trip. 

There are many more natural attractions you can include in your vacation plans. Continue reading about nature in Romania on our travel blog www.uncover-romania.com
