Riding on the Mocănița steam train on Vaserului Valley


The Forestry Railway in Vișeu de Sus is both industrial and cultural heritage. This railway still runs with steam engines, fueled by wood and coal. This makes the Forestry Railway in Vișeu de Sus known worldwide as the last active forestry railway using steam-powered engines.

From May to October, following a preset schedule, the tourists can enjoy the regular steam trains as well as special events like the Maramureș Brunch, full moon trains, classical music concerts or the New Year’s Eve party.

For railway enthusiasts travelling on the Mocănița train photo tours can be organized all year round. Their duration and complexity ranges from using a simple, steam-powered charter train, to complex programs, with accommodation in the Vaserului Valley, bonfire, catering services and traditional timber loading.

For larger groups, we have a comprehensive offer including a steam-powered charter train, open-bar catering services and entertainment activities. Such trips can be scheduled all year round.
