Captivating journey through rocks and mountains
The Bicaz Canyon is one of the most spectacular places in Romania, located in the north-east part of the country, in Neamţ and Harghita counties. It is a noted location to see the wallcreeper, an uncommon cliff-dwelling bird.
The canyon was dug by the waters of Bicaz River and it serves as a passageway between the Romanian provinces of Moldova and Transylvania.
The road along the 8 kilometres of ravines, often in serpentines with rock on one side and a sheer drop on the other, is one of the most spectacular drives in the country.
Also within the Chei is Lacul Roşu (the Red Lake), with its traditional cabins, hotels, and its famous lake (situated at 980m altitude) caused by a landslide in the 19th century
