About Family Activity Holiday in Transylvania
A small group trip specifically designed for families - countryside activities, wildlife encounters and plenty of Transylvanian castles.
Activity code: ROFAM01
Duration: 8 days / 7 nights
** also available as a tailor-made trip throughout the year
The Transylvania Family Holiday package is an ideal way for you to enjoy the whole experience of travelling to Romania together as a family unit. This attention to the needs of a family begins with a choice of family-friendly accommodation such as good quality family-run guest houses and small hotels. In our opinion, the smaller and more traditional places to stay are a great way to meet the local people and to experience the incredible variety of Romanian culture and countryside activities on offer.
We have designed the holiday to be flexible so that we can meet the needs of most families, this means there is a fabulous choice of activities, some are included and others can be pre-booked as part of the holiday itinerary. The most popular are guided city tours, guided day hikes with home-made picnic lunch, 4WD tours of the mountain villages, traditional cookery classes, encounters with wildlife such as bears, visiting castles and much more....
The version on this page is based upon a superb guest house in Zarnesti (near Bran) and includes a private city tour, a guided day hike, cookery class and all private transfers between locations.
2020 departures - on request.
The above departures are small groups but we can arrange this holiday for any reasonable date between April and end of October as a Private Journey for a minimum of 4 persons.
NB: Flights are available to book through us with a wide range of airlines, from various UK airports. If we book your flights this means that your holiday will be fully ATOL protected.
Flights can be booked to match exactly with this tour, please contact us for best current prices and full details or, of course, to arrive early or extend your stay.
Note on Rediscover Group Tours: Rediscover the World is committed to providing unique and carefully thought out small group tours that combine the highlights of the country together with some of the lesser-known wonders. Running a limited number of departures a year, we opt for quality rather than quantity. Our guides think about the whole experience and will use their experience to allow you into the homes of the locals and many of the lesser-known places that will make your trip unique. We believe that a small group size is imperative for this kind of travel and we therefore keep our maximum number to 16/17 (i.e. an average of four families travelling).
Fly into Bucharest International Airport. On arrival meet your guide and drive north through the stunning Prahova Valley to Predeal where your journey takes a smaller road over the mountain pass to Rasnov and on to your base for the next few days, the traditional village of Zarnesti.
