RECREATION AT VIDRARU LAKE

Situated along the spectacular TransfÓ‘gÓ‘rÓ‘ÅŸan, where the ArgeÅŸ enters the gorges, Vidraru Storage Lake is a highly appreciated attraction by those who love natural sceneries. Surrounded by thick forests and by the crests of the FÓ‘gÓ‘raÅŸ Mountains, this calm mirror invites you to relax in this fascinating place.

On the shore of the lake there are numerous camping areas perfect for those who want to enjoy the quietness and the fresh air. Following the eastern shore, through tunnels, serpentines and viaducts you will get to Vidraru Dam, a true engineering masterpiece whose contour is electrically lit at nightfall. The moon reflected on the lake and the lights piercing the dark of the night create a fairytale-like picture that you don’t have to miss.

When the weather is fine you can practice water sports on Lake Vidraru: windsurfing, canoeing and water skiing. If you are passionate about fishing, you will find perfect spots for this activity towards the tail of the lake, so don’t forget your fishing rods at home. For the bravest of the tourists, the grandeur of the dam excites their appetite for adventure; the highest launching track was put up here for bungee jumping lovers. What do you say about a new perspective over the surroundings?

You can go for rides on the lake using light boats rented from the pier: paddle boats, hydrobikes, motor boats and kayaks. Furthermore, there are boat cruises every hour, which allow you to admire the sceneries of the FÓ‘gÓ‘raÅŸ and see the statue of Prometheus on Mount PleaÅŸa.  

To fully take advantage of the beauty of this area, we suggest you visit it between July and August, when the temperatures are pleasant and the rains pretty rare. You have to know that bathing in the lake is only recommended for experienced swimmers; if not, you better stay close to the shore.
