Firstly, your qualified mountain guide will pick you up from your Brasov lodging at 8 a.m. Then we will drive for about 3 hours, near Vidraru Dam.
After a three-hour drive, you'll arrive at the trail's starting location. Your English-speaking qualified mountain guide will give you a quick briefing regarding your gear after car is parked. You will become acquainted with the helmet and harness before beginning your hike in Stan's Gorge. The trail's initial section is very beautiful, with waterfalls and cliffs on both sides!
The trail becomes more difficult after reaching the metal ladders, including via ferrata aspects, but if you're not afraid of heights, you should be alright. You'll be awestruck as you travel down the canyon by the crystal clear river that flows nearby, generating magnificent waterfalls in the tightest spots. Secure your harness with your safety gear and follow your guide's instructions. It's crucial to keep safe because some of the locations are slick.
Stop whenever you wish to remember this one-of-a-kind and spectacular Romanian location. You'll stop for a well-deserved lunch break at the trail's end and breathe in the pure mountain air. You'll return to your car across the canyon once you've finished. Depending on the number of tourists, we can continue through the forest until we reach the Vidraru Dam, where we will be rewarded with a spectacular panorama.
Finally, you will be taken back to Brasov and dropped off at your accommodation after getting to the car.

This was a quite pleasing experience although it could be better and easier. the office of Neotours is not at the address given but around the corner in a completely different street. Visitors who need to contact Neotours personally will find this worrying. The bear watch itself was good. The guides cannot be faulted for the fact that the bears appeared very late when it was very dark.
