Apuseni Mountains

Why should you visit the Apuseni Mountains?

  • The Apuseni Mountains are a mountain range in Transylvania and form part of the Western Carpathians
  • The name Apuseni literally means mountains 'of the sunset'
  • Home to bears and wolves, so hiking is more enjoyable with a guide who knows the area
  • It is not uncommon to hike all day and not see a soul.

A little more about The Apuseni Mountains

The Apuseni, though easily accessible, remain far from Romania's tourist trail with craggy peaks rising from bright green fields, thick forests, and over 400 caves

When to go

As with all of Romania, early Spring, from March to June, and then late Summer, September and October are the best times to explore this beautiful country.
