Hi All
We are travelling down to Romania in a few weeks time, does anyone know what the campsites are like down that way? Is it better to look for sites or is wild camping ok? Any info would be great.

We are considering the same thing.. How long are you going for and when? And what ferry are you thinking about taking? And will you ride directly to Romania or are there stops planned? Sorry for all the questions, but we have left the planning a bit late and are trying to see if it is worth it /possible on a two week trip.
cheers

Hi Xander, we are sailing from North Shields to Amsterdam on Sat 26 May and returning Sat 16 June, so we have 3 weeks. Originally we only had 2 weeks but were still looking at same trip but spend less time in Romania. Our plan (I use that word loosely) is to ride through Germany into Poland, have a day or 2 around Krakow then down towards Romania. We'll spend 4 or 5 days down there and then travel back up perhaps through Hungary/Austria/Germany. When are you travelling? We are planning to camp all the way.

Hey Debz,
The exact dates are still to be confirmed.. but we have about two weeks holiday to take in a three week period (25th June i.e directly after the HU meet to 12th of July).. or we might push it to the end of july which would give us much more time..... almost 3 weeks..maybe that would be a better idea come to think of it..

We would also be camping.. but want to spend as much time as possible in Romania (big place and never been there before).
If it turn out that we are in the same place at the same time we should meet up for a !

Hello Martin and Martyn,
I'm another Martin, and I run a small camping and caravan park in southern Bulgaria. See Sakar Hills Camping
If you are traveling through Greece to get to Bulgaria, I would recommend two campsites in Greece, one at Kavala and the other in Alexandroupoli. Both are right by the sea, and are clean. The one at Kavala is signposted from the motorway and for the one at Alexandroupoli just take the first turn off signed for Alexandroupoli, drop down onto the old coast road heading east and you will find it in some trees on the right side of the road, on the edge of Alexandroupoli town, at some traffic lights.
From there if you head north you will reach the bulgarian border in about 3 hours. To get to us turn west towards Lubimetz and from Lubimetz continue west on the E80 for about 8 km until you see our signs.
If I can be of any more practical help, e-mail me through our website, or on martinjeffes@yahoo.co.uk
Good luck with the trip.
