CARPATHIAN NATURE TOURS
Carpathian Nature Tours was founded in 1999 in cooperation with the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project (clcp).
Within the frame of this “wolf-project” we developed a sustainable tourism programme with the principle of
socially and environmentally responsible tourism for the national park Piatra Craiului area. Our main interest
was – and still is – the conservation of nature and the protection of the European large carnivores bear, wolf
and lynx. We therefore focus on hiking and nature experience holidays with wildlife watching.
In the year 2000 Carpathian Tours was a founder member of the first association for eco-tourism in Zarnesti and
in 2003 a founder member of the first national association for eco-tourism in Romania AER.
We regard a close contact between the traveler and the tour operator as essential, therefore we guide only small
groups (max 15 persons). A special highlight for the Carpathian mountains is watching European brown bears from
a cabin in the forest. With some luck you can also see other wildlife like wild boar, birds of prey, owls or
We also work with
the Romanian Institute for Wildlife Research on some of their projects like the beaver
reintroduction programme or the reintroduction of marmots in the Fagaras mountains.
