Romania Photo Tours - Steam train in Maramures
Photo Tours of Romania

We are one of the few tour operators specialized in organizing photo tours of Romania and our very first tour back in 2011 was with photographers.

People photography is particularly great as in the countryside there are still many locals practicing traditional occupations such as farming, shepherding, blacksmithing, wood carving, distilling fruit brandy and more. There are also special events when people dress up in wonderful traditional clothes.

Travel, landscape and wildlife photography are also very good as Romania has impressive medieval towns and fortifications, mountains where bears and wolves live and the Danube Delta where over 300 species of birds live.

We organize private, tailor-made photo tours of Romania so please contact us and let us know what interests you.
