Hike on the second highest peak in Romania
Negoiu peak is the second highest peak in Romania and is accesible most of the times for experienced hikers. In the Summer time though, hiking Negoiu will be a life time memory for any hiker as the trail includes Calțun glacier lake, Devil's Narrow or Doamnei's Narrow and a breathtaking view of all Southern Carpathians if the sky is clear.
The tour will include about 6 hours of driving (if leaving from Bucharest) and 6 to 7 hours of hiking. Depending on customer experience and physical ability, as well as weather conditions, the tour may end without reaching Negoiu Pk. but will give the customers the opportunity to enjoy the view of the peak, glaciar lakes and wild animals. Safety of our clients comes first!
For this tour, minimal equipment is needed (such as hiking boots, rain coat, flashlight, small backpack, hiking sticks, etc. For more details, please feel free to contact me.
