Packing for Romania
Summers in Romania run between June and September, and the sun can be strong. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are all musts. In the winter season, from December through to March, expect snow in the central mountainous regions. Multiple layers, a scarf, gloves and a warm thick coat are essentials. If you’re planning serious hiking in Transylvania, you’ll want sturdy boots, a good backpack and a light bottle or camel pack for carrying water.
Ship your bike to Romania
Romania is a great mountain biking destination, with excellent trails in the central Carpathian Mountains and the foothills of Transylvania. If you’re a road cyclist or are planning a cycling tour, the Romanian section of EuroVelo 6 – Europe’s international cycle path – runs through Bazias along the Danube River through Bela Crkva overlooking the Black Sea. Let Luggage Mule ship your bike to Romania at reasonable rates, so it’ll be waiting for you when you arrive.
Ship your golf clubs to Romania
One of the Romania’s most popular golf courses can be found at SunGarden, a golf and spa resort near Cluj-Napoca in the northwest. Set in landscaped grounds and surrounded by forest, it’s a scenic location, with accommodation and extensive leisure facilities on site too. Other top clubs include Selas Golf and Polo Club on the outskirts of Bucharest, and Clubul de Golf Lac de Verde to the south of Brașov. It isn’t always easy to hire golf clubs here, so it’s worth bringing your own – use Luggage Mule to ship your golf clubs to Romania securely and at reasonable rates.
