Adventure and cultural tour in the Banat Region including trekking programs in the Nera Gorges and boat cruise through the Danube Defile.
About this Experience
The idyllic and active program, “Adventure in Banat” is following the tracks of the Romans on their way to Dacia, crossing the Danube and the Nera Gorges to the hearth of the Banat Mountains. It will be a once in a lifetime experience.
Once leaving Bucharest and arriving in the Banat region, you will step back in time, in the period when Hercules was still searching in the Banat Mountains for the Golden Wool and when the Romans were trying hardly to defeat the nature and conquer the Kingdon of Dacia.
If any of them really made it, we will find out together. On this tour you will explore the wild and unspoiled protected areas of the Nera Gorges, sail the Danube through its gorges and listening to the stories spoken by the locals that live in these remote villages.
Discover more than 2000 years of history and stories in one single adventure tour. The tour of the Idyllic Banat!
