Dorna Adventure invites you this weekend on a river rafting journey you’ll always remember, on the Bistrița River, at Vatra Dornei.
Vatra Dornei is one of those scenic Romanian mountain resorts widely popular with Romanian travelers, and not as popular as it should be with foreign tourists. That’s because, despite all efforts, Romania still doesn’t have a strong presence online, with Facebook groups and Twitter accounts, to promote its core touristic values. Business owners in Vatra Dornei take the promotion in their own hands, but they still have a long way to go. And while they struggle, tourists looking for a place to spend an active holiday, go for more popular destinations.
Tucked at the heart of the Eastern Carpathians, this northern Romanian resort is fascinating. It’s close to a number of iconic Romanian landmarks, like the painted churches of northern Moldavia and their monasteries, and the very city of Suceava with its fortifications. It also has its own attractions, ideal for families, and not only – count for a Vatra Dornei travel guide the Ethnographic Museum of Bucovina; the Hunters’ and Natural Science Museum; and the “Lunca Dornei” Park, still undergoing some landscaping and construction works.
Today, however, we take a look at one of the favorite summer activities in Vatra Dornei: river rafting on the Bistrița River.
All the images illustrating holiday activities here were provided by Dorna Adventure. This tells a bit about what they have to offer: mountain biking on a 80 km route, cycling, Nordic walking, climbing and mountaineering, skiing, boating and river rafting on the Bistrița, team building activities, paint-ball and even via ferrata.
This Saturday, August 6, 2011, Dorna Adventure invites all river rafting enthusiasts to participate in a rafting journey to remember. There are two routes to explore Zugreni – Cheile Bistriţei (1,2 Km) and Toance-Comuna Crucea (1,3 km), in teams of 4-12 rafters. The price is more affordable than you imagine: a bit more than $15 USD, just 50 RON for rafting. And if you are in the mood for other adrenalin triggering activities, Dorna Adventure can and will accommodate.
