Explore Bicaz Canyon: the gateway to Transylvania


The Carpathian Mountains, their Oriental part, hide one of the treasures that deserve to be discovered. One of It is Canyon Bicaz, a real natural gate between the province of Moldova and Transylvania. A helpful hard working was the Bicaz River. He began his work a long time before he appeared since the dinosaurs ruled the world. For millions of years, the Bicaz River dug up the mountain, sneaked as he only knows. Then it was the turn of the man to try to unite the two historical provinces of Transylvania and Moldova, building the road, sinuously, with twisted curves and bridges. Bicaz Canyon remains like a gate that wants to be open. Then, not far from the canyon, there is Red Lake, a red lake, which a few hundred years ago did not exist, but one day the mountain was upset about people and took it down the valley. He left behind this lake, people, and animals paying with their life and blood, the red lake. We return to Iasi before visiting and admiring the town of Piatra Neamt.

Itinerary

The proposed tour departs from Iasi, Moldova's heart. We will drive by car to the Bicaz dam - Izvorul Muntelui. Before we reach the dam, we go through the reserve of European bison, a species that has disappeared and for several decades started a restocking program with this fascinating species that once walked freely through the mountain forests.
We will visit the lake, depending on the season - boat ride on the lake. The next stop will be in the Bicaz Canyon, where you will admire the tall walls, the spectacular passages of the Bicaz River, twisted road. Not far from the canyon is the Red Lake, a short hike around the lake, a boat trip among the fossilized trees. After lunch we head to Piatra Neamt, stop by the lake of Batca Doamnei to admire the birds on the lake. Also in the area, we can visit the Bistrita Monastery. Then Piatra Neamt, with the Royal Church and Stefan's big tower, with cable car, climb Cozla where we admire the unique landscapes. Towards the evening, returning to Iasi.
