Our adventure tour will take to the impressive Bicaz Gorges. Hasmas National Park is located only 3 hours away from Iasi and it offers a wide variety of activities and unique landscapes for adventure lovers and tourists alike. Lakes, rapid springs, waterfalls, rocky peaks and exciting landscapes are just waiting to be discovered. Together we can explore hidden caves and the gorges of Bicaz and Bicăjel, we can spot the famous Rupicapra (chamois) in its natural habitat, and we can hike on wild tracks or listen to the sounds of nature.
This adventure day trip in Romania offers you a wide range of activities from which you can choose one or combine many, according to your training and desire. You can choose from the following adventure activities:
- Hiking and exploring the Sugau gorges (2-3 hours of moderate effort) and the nearby routes. Here you get to climb in and cross the mountain to the other side through the Tunnel Cave, you can admire the calcareous cliffs and the relict pine forests and reach a Bellevue point from which you can look towards the Bicaz Gorges.
- Hiking around the Red Lake (1-2 hours with little effort). You can admire the beautiful natural barrage lake formed after a big earthquake only 150 years ago and you can take a short ride on a boat.
- Hike in Bicajel gorges (2-3 hours of moderate effort). This hike takes you through the spectacular landscape formed by the small Bicajel River.
