Romanian Autumn trips are probably some of the most colorful and filled with local savor. While Romania has four seasons and each has its own charm, fall might be just perfect for wandering and exploring.
Spring in Romania delights with fields full of flowers in bloom and the most important celebration: Easter.
Summer in Romania means high temperatures, lush vegetation and good weather for nature tours. It’s also the time for seaside vacations on the Black Sea coast or leisure trips to Comana Lake for some fishing, mountain biking or kayaking.
Romania in the autumn
It is a known fact that during autumn Romania has the best weather for exploring. Not too hot or too cold, it allows you to enjoy a full day of walking tours or visiting. Furthermore, it is the best season for mountain hiking and nature tours. As opposed to summer there is little chance of a thunderstorm or heavy rain. Nature puts on a colorful show with yellow and Auburn leaves.
Autumn is, after all, a transition season. The beginning of September feels like summer and the heat gradually goes down. Up until the middle of October, the weather is mild and perfect for outdoor exploring.
