Bicaz Canyon (Cheile Bicazului in Romanian) is best done on foot in a 30-40 minutes walk. I started right above the first road switchbacks and all the way out to the first restaurant (which you'll see on the right side after the Canyon opens up)....More

A short but interesting narrow canyon with high sides. You need to stop and have a wander around since you are out of the canyon very quickly.

We went out of our way to see the gorge and were not unimpressed. Admittedly we've seen some amazing gorges / canyons / defiles elsewhere in Europe but this certainly had some incredibly high sides / cliffs. There's only so much you can walk -...More

This was a surprise. Beautiful drive through high walls of stone along a river. Don't know what to compare it to, maybe Yosemite. Didn't expect to find this in Romania.

We came here in the snow and ice; it was absolutely fantastic. There were fabulous views as we gradually drew closer. And as we drove through we just had to stop and take photos - it was really worth coming to.

We were glad we left our car at one of the widened area next to the souvenirs stalls and take a good hike at the bottom of the gorge up the canyon. There were frequent traffic along the road and a hike of an hour...More

The Biz Canyon takes you by surprise. One minute you are driving through the hills, the next you are plunging down through the rockface. This is an incredible gorge. Ignore the tourist tat being sold by the roadside. Just find somewhere to park and take...More

Indeed, there are some waterfalls close to what is called "the Altar Rock" (huge rock with a cross on top, you can't miss it). The trail starts somewhere right after you exit the tunnel, marked with a red triangle. Cross the... More
