Welcome to Romania! Transfer from Bucharest Airport to Poiana Brasov in the heart of Transylvania, known as one of the best ski resort in Central-Eastern Europe. On the way to Poiana Brasov stop in Sinaia, the pearl of mountain resorts in Romania, home to the royal Peles Castle. Next stop is the Saxon Medieval City of Brasov, a city with an outstanding medieval atmosphere which has played a vital role in Romania’s history, both old and new. The most famous landmark of Brasov is the Black Church, the largest gothic edifice in South-Eastern Europe. Accommodate in Poiana Brasov, in a 4* hotel built in 2005 as a DeLuxe standard hotel.

Rasnov Peasant Citadel is the best preserved peasant fortification in Transylvania and the largest one ever built in Eastern Europe.

More heli ski programmes on our specialised website:


Beside Heli skiing we can create a programme including airplane tickets from tourist’s country to Bucharest and transfer to Poiana Brasov, or to Transylvania (Targu Mures airport via Milano, Italy), local tours of one or 2 days (Brasov, Sighisoara, Bran, Sinaia, Brasov).

Brasov was for centuries the gate between Valachia (southern Romania ), Moldavia (the Eastern region) and Transylvania having its own special commercial privileges. Therefore, craftsmen and traders prospered in the city. The city was founded in the Middle Ages, but the exact date cannot ne told. What we are sure of is that the Saxon settlers who came during the 13 th century already found a Romanian community here – the city stands as a living proof of how this two cultures met. learn more

Enjoy the medieval flavour at its best! There’s no better place for a medieval adventure than Sighisoara. The citadel stands as Europe’s most beautiful inhabited fortified city, UNESCO European heritage site and as “the most beautiful and complete site of medieval architecture in Romania”. A city with an intimate and warm atmosphere that offers fabulous sights, delicious treats in superb restaurants with old architecture and undying vampire tales; visit the Clock Tower, the Medieval Weapon Collection and the Torture Room. learn more

Dracula’s Castle from Bran, that owes its fame both to its unique charm and to the myth created around Dracula. Peles Palace, the most beautiful royal residence in Europe.
