Hidden wonders in Transylvania

Although Transylvania is best known for Bram Stoker's Dracula, it is a traveler's paradise. Transylvania is surrounded by unspoilt nature - with its medicinal herbs, wild flowers and wildlife. In addition to its outstanding biosphere, the region is also unique for its cultural diversity, with Hungarians, Romanians, Saxons and Gypsies living side by side.

Taste fresh mineral waters, try your hand at various traditional crafts, learn how to make the famous local dessert - the chimney cake, splash in healing waters, learn about local cultures, go foraging, try the local gastronomy, discover wildlife - experience a corner of Transylvania as only the locals know it.

  • Day 1

    Transfer from the airport to your accommodation. After settling in, we will tour the vast estate on which the accommodation is located, learn about its history, the world of the Transylvanian nobility, and then enjoy a welcome dinner.

  • Day 2

    We travel to Csernáton, where we visit the most exciting museum of the county. Through the Haszmann Pál Museum we can learn about the history of the area, its centuries-old utensils, building traditions and much more. We spend a simple, home-style lunch in a cozy place and learn the secrets of making the famous local dessert, the chimney cake. In the second half of the day, we will participate in a bear watch.

  • Day 3

    In the morning we take a beautiful hike, visiting the Seven Ladders Canyon. After a pleasant tour, we'll explore the world of the Transylvanian Saxons - first in the old town of Brasov, then visiting a fortified church protected by UNESCO World Heritage.

  • Day 4

    We visit Bikkfalva, the land of mansions. We will learn about the history of the village on a walking tour, and then take part in a craft workshop where we will try our hand at woodcarving and felting. If the weather permits, we will cycle to Szacsva via the Reci Birches, from where we will be taken to the nearby Wildlife Park, where we will continue our exploration of the country's wildlife.

  • Day 5

    After saying goodbye to our first accommodation, we travel to the Bodzavám area, where we visit a buffalo reserve and a special natural attraction, the Howlers Waterfall. We have lunch at a local house. In the afternoon, we will learn the secrets of cheese making and then settle into our accommodation in Bálványos.

  • Day 6

    On this day we explore the sights of the area: Saint Anne lake, the most beautiful crater lake in Europe, the unique flora and lakes of the Mohos peat bog, and we learn what are the mofettes used for. Who dares to try the cold-water healing traditional baths at the Csiszar “Spa”. At the middle of the day, we satisfy our hunger with a picnic-style lunch of homemade snacks. Thanks to its post-volcanic activity, the Csomád and Stinky mountains have many interesting features. Let's explore them together!

  • Day 7

    We invite you into a familiar yet forgotten world. We will spend this day learning about nature. We will go foraging in the morning then studying in the afternoon. We will learn about edible wild plants, herbs and the colorful world of mushrooms. The aim is to get closer to nature, which our grandmothers knew well but we have become quite distant from it. After the first part of the day, we settle down for a lunch, complementing grilled goodies with some of the delicacies we collect together.

  • Day 8

    Zalánpatak is a small village surrounded by forests in the Baraolt Mountains. Numerous traditional Szekler houses and wildlife create a special, unique atmosphere. Perhaps this motivated Charles king to buy a few houses in the village and create a place of refuge. We drink tea at his guesthouse, discover the small village museum, have lunch at a local’s home, and go on a horse-drawn carriage ride.

  • Day 9

    Transfer to the airport, or continue to discover Transylvania with a different tour.
