Modern chairlift, it's abot a 25 minutes ride one way, so it's very slow, you have time to adimre the surroundings. I am usually scared of heights, but I had no problem here.

We loved the telescaun in vatra dornei. Amazing views all around! At the top there great views down into the valley and the beautiful villages / towns. The herd of cows on the hills with the tingling bells was an added bonus.

It costs 20 RON/adult (2 ways) and 10-15 RON/child the ticket fee. One way the trip lasts around 20 minutes. The view from the top of the mountains worth every penny !

Sorry for my slow response...I think that getting on and off would be difficult for a 3 year old. The chair lift is a ten minute walk from town on the 'park' side of the river (across from the main town). I think you can... More
