Romania - Trekking the Fagaras Mountains

Romania - Trekking the Fagaras Mountains


From £1,425
Altitude 2,545m Grade: T3/Backpacking

Climb Romania's three highest peaks with superb ridge walking and lakes

The Carpathian Mountain range sweeps down through Romania in an arc that divides the country in two. Our trek concentrates on exploring the Fagaras Mountains, the highest section of the Southern Carpathians, rather than just rushing up the highest peak. Using mountain chalets as bases, we make ascents of the three highest peaks of the Romanian Carpathians; Moldoveanu (2545m), Negoiu (2535m) and Vistea Mare (2527m). We can enjoy some of Europe’s most splendid ridge walks offering excellent views over the valleys and lakes below.

This is a backpacking trek for experienced walkers who are used to narrow paths and exposed ridges. You need to carry all your personal belongings with you (except up Moldoveanu) – but with careful packing your load should not exceed 8kg.

Insurance

It is essential for a trip of this type that you are adequately insured. When researching insurance options, please ensure the policy covers you for the following:

  • Cancellation or curtailment
  • Helicopter rescue (most insurance companies will no longer cover for ‘search and rescue’ but providing you stay with the group, they will assist with ‘rescue’)
  • Repatriation
  • The altitude that you are expected to attain
  • The location especially when travelling to Antarctica
  • Grade of trek/climb/expedition
  • Medical cover

Adventure Peaks partners with Global Rescue to offer the world’s leading travel protection services.  Medical and security emergencies happen. When they do, we rely on Global Rescue to provide our clients with medical, security, travel risk and crisis response services. Without a membership, an emergency evacuation could cost over $100,000. More than one million members trust Global Rescue to get them home safely when the unexpected happens. We highly recommend our clients enroll with Global Rescue:
