Adventure travel tour operator, Tucan Travel has introduced an overnight excursion in the Maramures region to all Romania tours starting from spring 2020. The itinerary change will see travellers spending the night in a traditional guesthouse in the northwestern region of Romania, complete with a home-cooked local dinner. The day excursion now includes pottery demonstrations and other introductions to local traditions such as wood carving and fabric making.
The improved itinerary comes in light of Tucan Travel’s commitment to supporting local communities and re-defining responsible travel.
