This weekend adventure represents a journey to EXPLORE relics of old times and traditions. It is a walk back in time as well as a taste of history. It is a way to BE PART OF THE TRANSYLVANIAN CULTURE and traditions while stepping away from the rudimental way of travelling and engaging in a UNIQUE DISCOVERY PROCESS. A genuine weekend adventure in the WILD TRANSYLVANIA which will take you on the mountain trails walked by the shepherds, to their “castles” on top of the mountains, where an exquisite culinary delight is waiting for you.
Welcome to the MYSTERIOUS TRANSYLVANIA. Kick off your weekend adventure with your group leader Tudor, who is going to welcome you at the starting point of the tour, the saxon city of Sibiu. City that was European Capital of Culture in 2007 and this year is European region of gastronomy.
On our way up to the accommodation in the mountains we will make a quick stop for a GASTRONOMICAL DELIGHT in terms of traditional food and placement at the Nobleman’s Pantry (Camara Boierului).
Today’s ADVENTUROUS HIKE will start at the bottom of the Cindrel mountains from where we will make our way on a NARROW SHADY PATH that will lead us to the imposing mountaintops of the Cindrel massif. On the edge of the soft summit lies a traditional PICTURESQUE SHEEPFOLD. Shepherds are a big part of the Transylvanian culture, especially on the gastronomical side.
It’s the PERFECT PLACE to rest, enjoy the astonishing view and learn about the daily simple life of the shepherds. For lunch we will savour the delicious lamb and milk specialties, skilfully prepared by the shepherds.
At the end of our hiking day, we believe that everyone deserves a SPA TREAT in order to relax and be fully fresh for the next day.
Today’s GASTRONOMICAL TOUR takes us to the Saxon city of Sighisoara where you will have the chance to taste some EXCLUSIVE LOCAL PRODUCTS, hear about how nature and the territory influences the local food; try typical local cheese, wine tasting and many more gastronomical surprises that will help you understand better the TRANSYLVANIAN CUISINE.
The day will end with a well-deserved party or night out where we will CELEBRATE the amazing time we had together.
After enjoying the breakfast, we will say goodbye to the Transylvanian mountains and head towards the airport in SIBIU for our return back to Denmark.
