The best time to visit Romania is from May to mid-October, whether you want to hike through our mysterious woodland trails or discover our cultural heritage and history. The weather is mostly nice and warm, although a bit hot during July and August with some chances or rain or stormy skies. We also recommend considering April for cultural exploration.
Where to go in Romania?
Romania has many sights to see and enjoy! The ones that should not be missed are Bucovina & Maramures, Transylvania, and the Danube Delta. Bucovina is known for its medieval monasteries (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), where you can find your inner peace but also discover many beautiful natural sights. Maramures is another famous region, due to its magnificent wooden churches, houses and carved gates, full of legends and symbols. Here you will learn the true meaning of tradition while enjoying breath-taking landscapes. Transylvania is where history comes to life: centuries-old fortified churches, citadels and Saxon houses will amaze you with their stories and architecture. Last but not least, the Danube Delta and Piatra Craiului National Park are the places where one can fuse with nature and discover the varied flora and fauna Romania has to offer. We guarantee your trip will be an unforgettable experience no matter your plans.
How many days does someone need to visit?
In order to get a real, complete feel of what Romania is like, we recommend at least three weeks. However, depending on what you chose to do, you can also plan a great trip for one week where you can narrow your sights on a few key highlights.
Step back in time and immerse yourself in bygone rural traditions on this 9-day tour of the Bucovina and Maramures villages. These two regions of Romania have carefully preserved their proud heritage, which you'll experience through plenty of cultural activities. You'll discover brightly painted monasteries, intricate woodwork, and fascinating multi-ethnic customs as you explore this pretty part of the world.
Avid walkers celebrate: this village-to-village walking tour was designed just for you. Hike through national parks, great forests, and the exceptional landscapes of the Bucegi Mountains. Visit traditional villages. And take in the dark, eerie history of Bran Castle - also known as Dracula's Castle.

Raluca was fantastic! She met us at the hotel and made sure we understood the route and itinerary as well as arranged for car pick up at the hotel. She was also easily contactable the we wanted to make some minor adjustments to the program we had arranged. Would highly recommend her as a tour organiser.
We mainly stayed in a B&B in a small village in the Carpathian Alps (Maluga). The hosts were friendly, helpful and efficient with ample breakfast and dinner provided as well as opportunity to... read more

The best part of the trip was Magura - a magical village in the mountains. We were lucky in that the rain stopped while we did the planned hike- but it could have otherwise meant 2 days in a small place being cold and wet. The hike was very challenging- about 6 hours ( not 4 hours as written). We did it, but I would suggest doing it with a guide or small group. The food and staff at the lodge were warm and friendly- even through the language barrier.
The car was dependable,and the driver... read more

I was a little skeptical initially about using Kim kim to assist w my travel planning as I had never heard of them and the 2 local travel agents that I know had not heard of them either. My family decided that Romania would be an interesting place to visit, but our local travel agents knew nothing about it and I was at a loss when attempting to plan the trip myself, using travel guide books etc.
I found Kim Kim while doing internet searches about travel planning for Romania. Kim kim... read more
