Can I travel to Romania? Is it safe to visit Transylvania?

”Can I travel to Romania?” – We’re sure this question comes to mind for a lot of you, especially after these hard times for everyone.

We have updated the initial post and at the time we’re writing this (May 28th 2020), everything seems to slowly return to normal.

The state of alert issued by the Romanian authorities will be over in June 16th 2020 and the international flights will be resumed. This means you can travel again to Romania! Hooray!

However, this doesn’t mean that you need to forget about social distancing and wearing a mask. Having a protective mask in closed spaces, public institutions, public transport and shops is still mandatory. Also, walking in groups larger than three is still under discussion. If you’re travelling with a big family, don’t worry, this rule is only applicable for those not living in the same house.

These lovely swans and their chicks can enjoy freedom in a slightly bigger group 🙂 we captured this shot in one of our bird watching tours near Brasov.

Restaurants and open terraces will be open starting from June 1st, with some social distancing between the customers sitting inside. This means you’ll have to make reservations for a free table in most places.

How about visiting the main tourist attractions? Museums, castles, churches? Well, these will probably allow people inside, but keeping the same rules regarding distance between visitors. This means one things: no more overcrowded castles and more time and space for you to take those amazing Instagram travel shots 🙂

Our suggestion for safe travelling in Romania are our nature & wildlife tours. Being in nature and breathing fresh air will surely boost up your immune system.

So what are you waiting for? Book a flight to Romania and travel safely. We will provide masks and disinfectant for any of our tours.

Are you worried about the coronavirus in Romania? There is no doubt that this pandemic had affected the global tourism industry. But if you come to Romania, should you be afraid and cancel your bookings?


Well, no. At the time of this post (March 3rd 2020), there are only three confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Romania, of which one is recovered. Compared to other countries in Europe, Romania is pretty safe, let’s say.

Of course, there are extra-precautions that you need to take, everywhere you go, not only in Romania. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly and avoid being in big crowds.

Regarding us, we need to inform you that we are not cancelling any of our tours because of the Coronavirus. We are specialized in wildlife and active tours, therefore spending most of the time in nature, in small groups, makes our services appealing for outdoor enthusiasts.

Should you need to cancel any booking due to the Coronavirus, we’d like to inform you that you can do it without any cancellation fees until 24 hours before the start of the activity.
