Itinerary
Stop At:  
Seven Ladders Canyon
We start the tour from Brasov (we pick you up from your location), head to the Seven Ladders Canyon (Canionul Sapte Scari) in the Piatra Mare range, part of the Southern Carpathian Mountains. This stunning gorge is famed for its steep ladders that take you up the rock walls past a series of rushing waterfalls. On arrival, set off along meadow and forest paths, reaching the canyon after a 45-minute hike. Then, opt to rest here or enter the rock chasm with your experienced guide. Head inside, and spend the next 15 minutes or so crossing the bridges and climbing each of the near-vertical metal ladders that make up the gorge. As you go, enjoy thrilling close-up views of the tumbling waters and the towering rock walls around you. After your trek, rejoin your group and choose between a 1.5-hour return route or a harder 2 to 3 hour trail, walking back through forests and glades to your vehicle. After your hike, your tour ends back at your Brașov hotel.

Awesome Experince

The description does not do this tour justice. It is way above what I expected in both beauty and fun. Bogdan, the tour guide is amazing- he went way above and beyond. He is one of the best guides I've ever had. My trip also included zip-lining and tandem paragliding - all set up by Bogdan at the last minute. I would do this one again!

Great attraction but you don’t need a guide

Our guide was nice enough but clearly wanted to be somewhere else. He hurried us through the hike and provided very little added value. We had some friends who just Uber’d to the trailhead. Save a few bucks and just do that. Sorry Viator but you have to up your game on this one.

Brilliant trip - Go during the week

I really enjoyed this trip; you walk for about 45 minutes to get to the canyon. It's not a particularly challenging walk, it's a steady uphill and is uneven in places. The canyon itself doesn't take very long to get through, but it's fun going up the ladders alongside waterfalls (be prepared to get a little wet and the rungs on the ladders can also be a bit slippy, so wear proper walking shoes with decent grip!) You can then either walk back down, or zipline you way back to the bottom for I think about another 100Lei. The scenery is really pretty and our guide was excellent.

This tour was amazing. Word of warning, don't do this if you're totally unfit, as there is a good bit of walking involved, but totally worth it. Our guide Bogdan was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour!

We took this tour in September 2017,Rasnav our guide was exceptionally helpful and attentive. After two days of cultural tours being in the countryside was a welcome break. The climb up the ladders is exhilarating you do need good walking shoes, I would thoroughly recommend the Zip line back down, not for the faint hearted but great fun! We heard so much about Romanian life from our guide and he very kindly took us to a local market on our way home to buy some fresh produce which was amazingly cheap, fresh and delicious. I would recommend while in Brasov to take this lovely outdoor experience.

We took this tour thinking of discovering the beautiful nature in Brasov area in a short time. Our expectations for the trip were definitely excedeed. After hiking through superb woods and climbing the 7 stairs, we had the chance to take the zip line on the way down. That was a very exciting adeventure for us and we wished it didn't end so soon, even if it took about 45 minutes getting down on the multiple zip line segments. Bogdan was always very careful and helped us with good tips how to coordinate our moves. I highly recommend this tour if you don't have a full day to spend and you are passionate about nature and a bit of sports combined with adrenaline. I would love to repeat this one day.
