Full description
Drive just 1.5-2 hours from Brasov to reach the magnificent Saint Ana’s Lake, situated 950 meters above sea level in the Ciomat Mountains. Marvel at the placid waters of a lake formed in the crater of a volcano that erupted about 32,000 years ago. Don't miss the chance to visit and became one of the most beautiful natural destinations in Transylvania. Appreciate not only the beauty of the lake and its surroundings but also legends from the area that your local guide will share with you. Explore the peat bog located in a second crater nearby the lake (visits during summer only). Learn about the unique plant life in this protected area, including carnivorous plants called "Drosera rotundifolia," miniature conifers, and others. After the visit to the lake and bog, your guide will drive you to Balvanyos where you'll make an easy half hour walk to check out the Puturosu or Stinky Caves and the so-called Bird Cemetery. Thanks to post-volcanic activity at these locations, sulphurous gas emanations are common. Let your guide introduce you to these spots with fun tricks and stories. Before driving back to Brasov, visit some naturally-occurring mineral water springs, which are frequented by locals and visitors for their health benefits.
