What to expect

Enjoy a day trip to to the most amazing and unique volcanic lake in Eastern Europe and the land of mineral waters.

After 1,5h driving from Brasov you will reach the magnificent area of Saint Ana’s Lake situated at 950 m altitude in the Ciomat Mountains. Its splendour and beauty take away the breath of every visitor. The lake formed in the crater of a volcano erupted about 32.000 years ago and became one of the favourite destinations in Transylvania for those who desire to escape into nature. Not only the beauty of the lake and its surroundings but the legends mesmerize those interested. Opposite to the lake, in a second crater, nature took its course and formed a peat bog, a protected area with unique carnivorous plants ‘’Drosera rotundifolia’’, miniature conifers and many others (visits only during summer).

After the visit to the lake and the bog, the tour guide will drive to Balvanyos and after an easy to medium up-hill walk (aprox. 30 minutes) you will reach the ‘’Stinky Caves’’ and the ‘’Bird Cemetery’’. The post volcanic activity and the sulphurous gas emanations will be presented and explained by the guide with fun tricks and stories.

To end of the day before driving back to Brasov you will enjoy some of the different types of mineral water springs in Tusnad Bai resort, which naturally come out of the ground and are used constantly by locals and visitors for their medical benefits.
