6 Days tour

Picture this for a minute: boat riding through the Danube's canals, amazing caves, narrow trails above the gorges, a hike behind a waterfall, visiting very old hamlets accessible only by wooden stairs, and a good and relaxing bath in thermal water.
Sounds like the perfect holiday, doesn't it?


Day 1: Today we are heading towards the notorious Danube Boilers. We will enjoy a beautiful boat ride with views of the old river and the mountains.
Day 2: Today we are going above the Boilers.
We will climb Ciucaru Mare Peak, and we will enjoy an amazing view: the Danube river flowing through the majestic cliffs. Our next highlight is the beautiful Ponicova Cave.
Day 3: Today we'll visit the famous sculpture(in rock): Decebal's head. Moving on, we'll visit the famous Baile Herculane resort, once known as, "The pearl of Europe". We cannot leave the place without trying the water ourselves, right?
Day 4: Today we'll have a trip back in time to hamlets that are completely isolated, without electric power, no roads, the only access points are 4 ladders.
Day 5: Today's Highlights include Vanturatoarea waterfall, which offers an impressive show. After that, we'll see the magic world of Tasnei Gorges, with the Black pine hanging, offering a sort of Japanese scenery.
Day 6: Returning home, end of the tour.
