New for 2018! An exclusive opportunity to go butterflying with Patrick Barkham in Transylvania for summer butterflies!

Romania is one of the largest Eastern European countries and within that Transylvania is a well defined region both geographically and historically. It is surrounded by the spectacular Eastern and Southern Carpathian Mountain ranges and for a thousand years it was either a separate country or a dukedom of Hungary. It is still renowned for a wealth of folklore & culture, but also habitats and thus species.

Many areas are still managed by traditional agricultural methods and the hand-mown fields and patches of original flowery meadows really help many populations of butterflies survive which are struggling or have already disappeared from other parts of Europe. With close to 200 butterfly species including many sought after ones, superb landscapes, medieval castles, fortresses and churches and excellent local food Romania is definitely a prime destination!

The tour is designed to visit some of the best butterfly regions in Transylvania. The Carpathian Mountains host many attractive mountain species while within the huge Transylvanian Basin you can find an amazing variety of different habitats ranging from wet meadows, alkaline marshes, steppes through to extensive oak, beech, evergreen woods, limestone slopes and volcanic hills.

During the 8-day long tour we visit many protected areas: Fogaras Mountain in the Southern Carpathian Mountain Range, Hargitha Hill and other parts of the Eastern Carpathian Mountain Range, Transylvanian Basin and Turda Gorge, all very different parts of Romania.

This promises to be a fantastic and very popular tour – we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment!
