Created with Sketch. Baraj Pecineagu, Romania View on map

Description

Closed until May 2022!

Location and accommodation

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city to relax and unwind, we invite you on an epic journey right in the heart of Fagaras Mountains. Surrounded by forests, far away from civilisation and overlooking Pecineagu Lake, Bunea wilderness cabin is the perfect blend of home comfort and unspoilt nature.

More than wildlife watching, a few days at the hide are an opportunity to explore and reconnect with the wilderness of the Carpathian Mountains. Built by Foundation Conservation Carpathia, this eco-friendly cabin is a green business example, which has a positive impact on the environment and the local economy.


Itinerary

  • Upon arrival, you will be welcomed with a glass of champagne and a light snack by your friendly host.
  • Once the sun starts setting, look for bears, wild boars, foxes, red deer, roe deer, lynx, wolves or European bison from the comfort of the hide.
  • In the evening, enjoy a candle-lit gourmet dinner made from local, organic ingredients accompanied by premium Romanian organic wines. We spend our evenings telling stories.
  • At the crack of dawn, wake up to see any wildlife roaming around the area, enjoying a hot tea or coffee.
  • After a hearty breakfast, we choose a hiking trail that suits you best (for a minimum stay two nights; your guide will advise you about this). During our trip, we may check our camera traps installed by the Foundation Conservation Carpathia for wildlife monitoring.
  • At lunchtime, we stop in a scenic place with breath-taking views over the Făgăraș and Iezer-Păpușa Mountains to relax and enjoy a well-deserved picnic (this applies for minimum stay two nights; for a one-night-stay, you will receive a packaged lunch).

5.0 "Ne-am reconectat cu natura"

Experienta noastra a fost una prea scurta (2zile/1 noapte) pe care ne dorim sa o repetam cat de curand. Totul a fost foarte bine organizat, de la plecarea spre observator, grija si atentia ghidului nostru Simona fata de noi si si ce cel mic...a fost perfect. Curatenie -impecabil, mancare delicioasa si companie pe masura. Observatorul Bunea este un loc magic, plin de energie pozitiva, un loc in care ne-am reincarcat bateriile si am dormit atat de bine si odihnitor incat n-am mai fi plecat de acolo. Ma bucur ca exista oameni precum cei din fundatia Carpathia si ca am avut sansa sa-i cunoastem. Misiunea lor este mareata si Romania are mult de beneficiat prin tot ceea ce fac. Recomand din tot sufletul sa incercati aceasta experienta, atat de unica si diferita.

5.0 "Foarte, dar foarte frumos!"

Ceva cu adevarat autentic romanesc, o experienta memorabila, chiar si pentru copii care au stat 3 zile/2 nopti fara curent, wi-fi si semnal :) O ocazie de reconectare cu familia, prietenii si natura. Si felicitari pentru faptul ca “vindeti” experienta, nu doar cazare sau mancare. Multumim si felicitari ghizilor S si C pentru rabdare si pasiune! Cu siguranta ne vom intoarce.

5.0 "Naturletea la ea Acasa "

A fost un privilegiu sa ne bucurăm de natura la ea acasa. Toată experiența a fost absolut specială, de la priveliștea fantastica a Observatorului, la naturalețea locului, la modul in care animalele ne-au permis sa ne bucurăm de prezenta lor, toate completate de mâncarea delicioasa și un serviciu impecabil. Multumim Oana pentru organizare și Bianca pentru tot efortul tău și pentru vârful Comisu ?

5.0 "Minunat"

Este genul de experienta unde realitatea bate pozele. Totul a fost la superlativ: drumul pana la Observatorul Bunea si inapoi la locul de intalnire, cazarea, natura. Privelistea din cabana- spre lacul Pecineagu si spre poienita preferata de ursii pofticiosi de iarba proaspata este mirifica. Noi am avut norocul sa vedem 2 ursi - unul seara, care a poposit in poiana in jur de o ora si altul pe la rasarit, venit sa serveasca cina :) Cabana ofera una dintre cele mai romantice atmosfere pe care le-am trait -poti servi cina la lumina lumanarilor sau poti admira inaltul cerului instelat, in plina natura aproape virgina. Lipsa semnalului sau a electricitatii nu face altceva decat sa sporeasca frumusetea locului, prin intoarcerera la natura. La interior, cabana iti ofera tot confortul de care ai nevoie si chiar mai mult. Totul este curat, foarte bine intretinut si foarte chic, realizat cu o atentie la detalii uimitoare. Nu ne asteptam ca la 2 ore departare de lume, in inima muntelui, sa poti bea un pahar de vin dintr-un pahar de cristal. Deliciile gastronomice imi fac pofta si acum cand imi aduc aminte: preparate locale, bio dintre cele mai gustoase . Cat despre Andrei, ghidul nostru, merita nota 10 cu felicitari. Un bun cunoscator al florei si faunei locale, o gazda extrem de primitoare si atenta la nevoile noastre, care ne-a facut sa ne simtim in siguranta pe parcursul intregii experiente. Pe scurt, totul te lasa fara grai. Sunt locuri minunate in care constie ntizezi puterea si frumusetea naturii. Superb este putin spus.

5.0 "Observatorul Bunea"

4-5 iulie 2020 - o exeprienta unica pentru grupul nostru : adulti si copii:) Am testat viata pentru 24 h fara telefon, tableta, curent electric! Am vorbit, am mancat, am baut si ne-am simtit foarte bine intr-un mod inedit! Locul este superb, natura te asteapta si te cuprinde cate un pic, cate un pic....Pe drumul care serpuia printre copaci, am avut ocazia sa intalnim un Urs :) L-am deranjat doar putin timp... cat am trecut cu masina! S-a speriat si a luat-o la goana pe munte. Urca pe panta abrupta a muntelui de parca mergea pe sosea. Fantastic! Am lasat masina unde intr-o zona deschisa, iar noi am urcat aproximativ 20 minute prin padure pana la locul de cazare. Observatorul este un loc modern, insa totul respecta cerintele locului! Mancarea, bautura, cafeaua, ceaiul, dulciurile - totul Bio si preparate de oamenii locului. Ghidul care ne-a insotit pe tot parcursul acestei experiente a fost foarte atent la nevoile noastre, foarte decent si foarte instruit. Ploaia care nu s-a oprit pana la ora 23,00 si lampa cu gaz care ne lumina fetele si gandurile, ne-au dus intr-o atmosfera pe care nu am mai trait-o demult! Nimeni nu s-a plictisit! A 2 - a zi am facut o coborare prin padure, frunze, noroi si alte obstacole! Am ajuns la masina ranger-ului obositi, incantati, plini de noroi insa victoriosi ! Va multumim si va uram mult Succes !
