About us

Active Travel Romania - tour operator - offers unique private and small group tours from general touring to wildlife viewing, to wilderness trips around Romania. Our main goal is to promote responsible, sustainable and durable tourism in Romania. Active Travel is committed to creating more opportunities to showcase the natural beauty of Romania while preserving these natural assets for future generations. Conservation and tourism do not have to be at odds. We have a vision for ecotourism that brings people into contact with nature, not in conflict with nature.

I found the business in 2007, after I was working in the biggest travel agency in Brasov for 13 years. The main reason for doing this was to promote Romania as an eco destination. In 2008 Active Travel become a Member of the Association of Ecotourism in Romania. In 2019 Active Travel was awarded with "Eco-Romania" logo for good practices in ecotourism for 3 hiking programs. "Eco-Romania" is a certification programme implemented by the Association of Ecotourism in Romania (AER).

I am the owner and product manager of Active Travel ("The Organizer"). Licensed mountain guide no 3347 and tour guide no 2956. Professional experience: 10 years as a licensed tour and mountain guide. 16 years of experience in hiking/trekking and during this time I was hiking a large part of the Carpathian Chain - the Romanian side. Trekking twice the E4 European Walking Path in Crete Island, from Paleochora to Chora Sfakion.

The company has 2 employees and is working with a team of 10 licensed guides (national and/or mountain guides).

We are a dynamic team, with more than 12 years of experience in City & Adventure tours.

Our goal: to promote responsible, sustainable and durable tourism in Romania.

We organize:
