Balea Lake Resort, Romania

In the Fagaras Mountains of Romania, a glacial lake is home to a beautiful resort over 6,500 feet in altitude. In the winter season, which stretches from November until May, the area is a popular destination for skiers, with opportunities for backcountry skiing. In the summer, the hillside becomes a verdant and scenic locale, perfect for exploring the area's forests.
