This camp takes us on the best trails of Piatra Craiului and Bucegi Mountains.

These massifs of the Carpathians are two of the most amazing Romanian mountains for trail-running. Their easy access from Bucharest and Brasov didn’t affect their wilderness and splendour, that’s why we invite you to discover their rich fauna and flora, warm clearings and spectacular landscapes. We will guide you on the unbeaten paths, where rural activities, sheepfolds, and ancient small houses will simply fascinate you. A mix of technical trails, pleasant downhills and high altitude running will make from this camp an adventure to remember.
