What is history? It began and ends at a glimpse of an eye. The caves of Transylvania holds and reveals the fire of the soul, the whispers of the earth. A step in a hidden Transylvanian cave is a step in a hidden, forgotten history.
This trip is also available for individual travelers starting from 2 persons.
This itinerary is suitable for people who have a passion for ancient civilizations, nature and mysterious caves. High in the Carpathians, unknown to most tourists, the ruin cities are waiting to be discovered. The route passes through quiet forests, deep valleys, mountains with beautiful cliffs, crystal clear streams. Your effort is often rewarded at the 2000 year old sun temples: you get a timeless feel, deep rest and wonder: who were the Dacians? Once back in “our time”, the route takes us to a beautiful area, the “Apuseni” Mountains. While walking we will explore the picturesque villages and mysterious caves. Wooden houses with roofs made of branches from pine trees, women blowing on an alpine horn, and the unparalleled hospitality of the people will leave an unforgettable impression.
